You have seen tags on websites. They are usually at the top or bottom of a page or a post and look like a jumble of words related to what you are reading.
If I were writing a post about Facebook, the tags you might see are “Facebook”, “Social Media”, “Social Marketing”, etc. Many people get them confused with categories and that is a reasonable mistake to make as they can seem very similar.
Early this morning, as I was enjoying my first day back at work after a long holiday weekend cup of coffee, I can across a post by JD Rucker. This post nails the differences and goes into detail about how to properly use tags on your website to make the most of them.
What makes the post even better than just a simple explanation is the fact that he goes into detail on how to properly use tags on a variety of website platforms including WordPress, Ning, and Tumblr which is good because we all know that not all conference and event websites are clones of each other.
Anyway, go check it out on Soshable.
