When you are creating posts for your site, you have the option of creating categories to help keep them organized and to help your traffic find particular things. You can find categories in the sub-menu under Posts

Each post can be in one or more different categories. So for example you could write an inspirational post the helps people create content. You can then list that post under the category or Inspirational and Content Creation. Very rarely do I write a post that only fits into only one of mine.

When I first started creating sites and so forth I did not realize that by setting up my categories and posting them in my widget area, that I could help my website rank!

I have had good success with doing it like I do. Both my sites rank from it, so I would not worry about using more than one.

Interesting. I've never even looked at categories. I don't even use posts.

I just use pages, and parent pages for anything I want to group, such as a brand name for a parent page and that brand's different models each have their own individual page.

I remember a long debate about this some months ago and the general consensus of opinion at that time was that there was little difference between pages and posts, so I stuck with pages. I've now reached 160 pages in so I ain't changing 'em all now.
