Hi there,

Do the search engines differentiate between groups of tags after a post and an actual tag cloud that's displayed in the sidebar or other places on a site? I know tag clouds are a no-no but in a way groups of tags are similar so I'm double checking.

Also, you're not supposed to use any category names in your tags. Does this mean identical matches or can you use category names as *part* of a tag? For example, if you have a category named "Green Beans" is it ok to use a tag that expands on that such as "Green Beans Recipe" or "Green Beans and Carrot Soup" for examples.

Thanks!
Deb

Where are you getting this crazy information from?

Because the information doesn't make sense, it's impossible to answer your questions. You might ask for clarification from whomever made these strange claims.

Well, the tag cloud no-no thing was a video by Matt Cutts. I'm backtracking all the places I was over the past 2 days but still haven't found the article this came from. If i find it, I'll let you know.

If it's from Matt Cutts, then I imagine you're simply misunderstanding what he was saying.
