Any blog uses tags to describe content and to make it ‘searchable’ or ‘findable’ by the internet search engines. They can also aid navigation within blogs and their sites. Tagging can greatly improve the chances of an article being indexed by a search engine. It is worthwhile, therefore, to consider how a tagging structure might look for a blog. To my mind, it is critical to make whatever system you use, you make it consistent. Consistency will help the audience find what they are looking for and are more likely to return in the future.

I have thought about if tags should have capital letters or not despite some research, I can’t really find an answer, so as long as I am consistent, it’ll be ok. I’m going to capitalise places, e.g. Cornwall and Worcestershire and the PostType, but nothing else. Worth noting is that I will aim to tag with single words, where possible.
I will need to go through all my previous entries and update them, but it will be worth it, to me at least!
