One of the many things I have tried to get to grips with since blogging is tags. At first I just tagged one or two key words from my post. I noticed other bloggers use quite a lot of tags per post so I slowly increased the ones I use. I now tag on average 10 per post. I also read you need to change tags every so often it’s not good to just using the same ones all the time. As well as tagging the main themes I now throw in one or two random ones. For example I mentioned Thailand in passing in one post and tagged it. I got several views from Thailand in the post, I don’t know if it was connected to the tags or not.

So has any one got any top tips…

  1. It took me a while, until I got used to going to the Reader page.

    • Okay, I didn’t know there was a “Reader page”. I’ve looked around the blog site a time or two, but I guess I need to check it out more.

      • The Reader page brings up the blogs you follow – then – On the left-hand side, you’ll see the word Tags – click ADD and type in – History, Design, WWII, etc. whatever you want and the blogs that used that tag will pop up.
