Tags are better known as the keywords that you use in your writing. If you have a blog about dogs and you write new a post about dog food, your possible tags would be: dog, dogs, dog food, natural dog food, dog food recipe, and any other keywords that you have used in your post.
How to use tags
Tags using your blog URLs:
<*a href=”http://www.yourblog.com/[tagname]” rel=”tag”>[keyword]<*/a>
(remove asterisks in actual code)
Here are some examples:
<*a href=http://www.yourdogblog.com/dog+food rel=”tag”>dog food<*/a>
