What is a Tag?
A tag is a keyword that helps to summarize your content in a word or phrase. It helps aggregate similar content together so that it is easier to find. In some ways it is an organization system like a dictionary or a library. Following rules will get others to the information they’re looking for more easily.
How to Use Tags
A tag can be one word on its own, or multiple words together connected by an underscore (_). A piece of content can have multiple tags. Separate tags should be separated by a comma.
- Use no more than 3-4 tags on any one piece of content
- Be specific but not too specific. Ex: "nicotine_replacement_therapy, chantix, varenicline" not “How_do_I_avoid_nicotine_nightmares?”
- Use the suggestions provided, if applicable
What to avoid:
- Creating multiple variations of the same thing. Ex: Cigarettes, cigarettes, Cigs, cigs
- Spaces and punctuation
- Creating extremely generic tags: Ex: "white"
- Using the same tag for every piece of content
- Including personal info or usernames (this is a BIG no-no!)
- Using offensive language
- Using Event/Celebration related tags (freedom_train, party_blog, bonfire, daily_pledge) unless you are a designated organizer
