To go along with this week's article on blog categories and tags, I asked my Twitter followers:
++What's your best use of blog categories and tags?++
Here's how they responded:
sambeamond: Don't have too many, keep them focused.
TimDineen: I have recommended against putting thought and weight to them. Cat/Tag pages don't rank, but could be a minor keyword-related signal.
Little_Sandbox: I structure my permalinks based on my categories, aside from that, I try to be concise.
forestsoftware: I use them to group posts together (SEO, Business, Computers, Marketing, etc.) -- not too many different ones either.
TheRealBoydo: Use tags to effectively map related posts to improve internal linking and bounce rate.
