    Hi BHW!

    I'm very confuse that why is my website's tags page(from the tag cloud that i created) ranking much better than my home page?
    In the tag page is just 3 links linking to my home page, privacy policy and contact us page and my home page has a well written article.

    Thanks

    So your saying that having a tag cloud on a WP site can benefit you? Please do tell more on this as I'm interested and think others may be as well.

    Is the tag page ranking high for the keyword you're targeting on the main page?

    I suppose your website is pretty much new, isn't it? If that's the case it's normal in the beginning tags or privacy policy or even about pages to rank better than the home page, but shortly everything will go in place.

    Also, in opposite to what OP said, I know G dislike tags (which is result of a common BH practice back in time called keyword stuffing), so don't over use tags.

    Only God knows how many are ideal :p As I said don't over use them, for example I don't post more than 3 tags and sometimes just one.
