Do WordPress Taxonomies (tags) Help in SEO?

Using keywords, titles and meta tags in your blog posts, on your websites, in your emails and on social media will make your site search engine optimized. Do you know what keywords are used to optimize your pages and your blog posts? The use of keywords is crucial when creating and optimizing your web pages for the search engines. The more keywords you use, the more popular your blog or website will become.

One big misconception many people have is that they should not put the title and a few words about the category into the tags section of each blog post or website. Do not do this. Putting the keywords first in the tags will help your posts be more well indexed by the search engines.

Another big misconception many have is that they should use too many keywords. There is not need to use as many tags as you see fit. There are many advantages of content-based tags that include SEO. The use of multiple keywords will help your SEO, it is important to have as few as possible. Too many keywords in your tags will be considered spam.

Another common misunderstanding that many have is to use too many categories in their site. If your site is about pet grooming products and the user finds the page in many categories, chances are, he will leave the site if he cannot find the specific category he is looking for. This will frustrate the user and will drop him off the search result pages. When a user finds your blog in the search results, he will most likely click on one of the links to your categories rather than leaving your site.

A further big misconception is using taxonomies in their tags and pages. A taxonomy is a system or hierarchy that categorizes information on a page. Some examples of taxonomies are price groups, product lines, brand names, brands, departments, product lines, product families, and product formats. Using taxonomies in your site will increase the usability of your site for your target audience, but in reality it will not improve search engine rankings. In fact, using taxonomies can cause search engine robots to lower your site’s PR.

A third misunderstanding is that using too many tags on your site will make your site harder to navigate. WordPress allows you to add as many taxonomies as you want, but WordPress encourages you to keep your navigation simple. Do not clutter your sidebar, sidebars, or sitemaps with tags. They will just get in the way and make the user experience less efficient. Do not add too many keywords either, keep your text and graphics clear and concise without any distracting words or images that may turn your user experience into a nightmare.

Another common misunderstanding about adding tags to WordPress is that they will hurt your SERPs. In fact, using keywords correctly and strategically within your content will increase your search engine rankings. If you have too many unneeded keywords, your site will appear dull and will not draw visitors. This can happen if you have a lot of internal linking, too many categories, or other problems within your site structure. These can also hurt your traffic. A well-designed site with informative content will also entice visitors to click on the various links to find what they are looking for.

There is an easy answer to the question of how does WordPress Taxonomies affect SEO? If you follow these tips, you will find your pages load faster and your visitors will be happier. Use keywords sparingly within your taxonomies and be sure to use them wisely. When used correctly, WordPress taxonomies will not hurt your SEO results.
