How are Content Tags Used?
Web content is, by default, categorized chronologically based upon when the content was posted to the website. Content tags allow the web administrator to categorize web content into groups based upon similarities between the content. Each article containing a specific content tag is categorically linked to other articles containing that same tag.
Why are Content Tags Important?
Content tags are often confused with Keyword tags and Category tags. A keyword tag is a meta tag (or metadata) attached to specific words in a web post or page. The meta tag demonstrates the relevance or importance of the tagged words. For example, a meta tag may make words into a Header, Bolded, Underlined, or Hyperlinked to other content. A category tag groups web posts into a categorical subject-matter. Basically, the web administrative identifies a category and categorizes all content that fits into that category. It differs from the content tag. While categories are subgroups of similar contents put together, tags are keywords assigned or attached to specific content. A category may comprise many topics and content, tags are assigned to each of the content items.
