    Do the search engines care if your blog post about [niche x] is tagged with "niche x"?

    I'm talking about on WP blogs and other styles where you can add "tags" to your post.

    It helps a lot. I found my own blog's articles through keyword phrases i use for tagging many many times. Just by tagging alone you create a lot more chances for your site to appear on Google.

    If you search Google a lot you might have noticed that on the SERP you can find relevance pages via tagging keywords as well, not just page titles.

    The key is to use variety of keyword phrases, tweak it a little more, do not limit yourself only to ordinary keyword phrases when tagging. So there are more available matching terms on your blog for search engine to pick up.

    Hope this help.

    On wordpress use the All in one SEO plugin and set it's options to use tags as meta keywords. in such case it will be useful. at least for adsense ;)
