    Hi, I often see people write a post, then create serveral tags. Why? Why is this best for seo?

    I dont have found any article out on the web that says : Tag your post up to 30 tag is good..

    But why is people still doing it?

    tags are good when you have an article like for example:"washing car"
    then you can make tags as:"how to wash car","my car isfilthy" and and and.
    then google will rank that tags too, which the destination are only one article

    Tag are one kind of seo category. When you add same tag within different post,you will see all post under that tag... like as category. And its also work as keyword/new page etc.

    on my blogs the tags generally get more traffic than categories... but maybe it is just me using the right tag and wrong categories...
