Not sure why but its just dawned on me I've not been using blog tags at all properly on my new site. I've been adding far more tags than I need and many are post specific defeating the object of having them really.

Having just watched Nathaniells training https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/what-are-tags-and-h... I know what I want to amend to organise things better. Luckily there are only 30 posts but is there anything I should know before I amend them or is it ok just to delete those that I dont want and add any new ones that I do?

Thanks

Yeah, I wouldn't even bother to be honest. Tags don't use much and if you are putting an ounce of thought into tag management after the fact, you are likely investing time that should be otherwise invested.

Thanks Kyle for taking the time to respond. I guess I'm a bit OCD when it comes to organising things and should have thought about it a bit better from the get go.

I'll leave it for these posts then and in 6/12 months time if and when I update any of the posts will look to amend.

I was going to say, I thought I read somewhere or saw Jay in one of his trainings say don't even bother with tags any more. I just couldn't find the link to back it up so I didn't say anything LOL.

I knew there was no real seo importance placed on them based on Jays training but I like to do everything properly and I really wasn't giving them any thought!

you should be fine to modify them as you see fit at any time.

Thanks Scott, I thought so. Wasn't really thinking and was adding far to many irrelevant or "post specific" tags 6 or 7 per post!

So want to tidy up an organise before I go any further.

Cheers

Have done that Trish but none really talk about changing what you had already done.

I just wasn't thinking when I added them, not sure why a bit of a brain freeze.
