I just learned something.new. I had worked out thst tags were a form of keywords, but it never dawned on me they could be used to link the posts within a category. Looks like I have a bit of homework to do. Thanks Loes

That's almost the whole post ;) When I search for this on Google, they often recommend 3-7, with 10 I am aiming to the high side already.

When you add tags, you do not add single words, but more like phrases. The same phrases you would use when you are searching for something on Google.

So make your phrases count.

When I would search this post on Google, I would ask e.g.

How to use tags on posts effective
Simple explanation about Wordpress tags

That's what people type into the search bar.

Take a look at your post and think about what people would ask Google if they were searching for your information.
