WordCamp Notes – Tags and Categories: Are You Uncategorized?

Lorelle VanFossen talks about Star Trek. Oh… and tags. And categories.

Bad Tags/Categories

  • exaggerated persistence
  • indecision
  • covers many, focus on few
  • babbling rambles
  • un-categorized

Purpose of tags and categories – BE FOUND!


  • identifiable message
  • clear message
  • recognizable


  • tags – index words, links, microdata, if enough posts have the same tage they are a category
  • indexed by Technorati tags
  • indexed by Google and other keywords
  • tags can be any link


  • Categories = Table of Contents
  • categories should be defined – not too broad; it is about being found (keywords)
  • know the difference between categories and tags
  • 10 posts = category
  • when one category dominates another – subject matter fo yout blog?
