Tag Clutter

I’ve been going through my website’s tags and after adding more content that I had written for classes but never posted. Somehow I ended up with 159 tags! This wouldn’t be bad except that many have only one or two posts attached to them, some had zero. So, I narrowed it down to 107 tags so far. I could definitely narrow them down more, but it’s a lot better.

Have you remembered to clean up your blog site categories and tags lately?

1. Go through all of your tags and see which ones can be consolidated, deleted, or changed to categories.
2. Go through some of your posts and make sure that your posts all have a fair number of tags and categories (at least one of each but no more than 8 or 9 total).
3. Also see my previous posts about this topic: Keywords & Categories & Tags Oh My!

I’ve added tons of posts to my Business category and Time Management tag and I’ve even added more posts to my newer tag:

College (which is a compilation of things that I wrote and learned during college but never got to shine up to make them a decent blog post. There is definitely more where that came from!)

This is very important for your visitors to get around your website and for SEO as well.

Now it’s time for me to go and make sure my sweetheart knows he’s special! ;) Happy Valentine’s Day!
