Tagging: separating the truth from the myth

You've written a thought-provoking, engaging blog post. Now, before you publish your post for the world - and potential clients and word-of-mouth referrers - to see, don't forget to add tags to help your readers follow the topical trends on your blog.

Tagging is similar to categorizing posts on your blog in that it allows readers to quickly find other posts you have written on the same topics. Think of tags as frequently-mentioned subtopics within a category. Even though tagging is really quite simple, there are many misconceptions out there.

Here are five statements about tagging. Can you tell the true from the false?

Small Change in "Write Entry" Interface

Starting today, you may notice a small change in the write entry interface. Based on feedback from Blog Services clients, we have removed the "keywords" field that used to appear below "tags" at the bottom of the content entry area.

This field was a standard feature of Movable Type but was not useful in our framework and tended to cause confusion.

Please be assured that this change in no way impacts the search optimization of your blog. The intent is simply to streamline the interface by removing a redundant feature.
