I assume we are both talking about Qondio.com Firstly, the Geographical Tags are optional. However, a minimum of five descriptive keyword or Topical Tags are required.
The Geographical Tags are only used when your topic relates to a specific place or country. For example, say I wanted to post this opinion piece to Qondio, "Why Albert Einstein was a great man."
I would fill out the intel submission form like this.
Topical Tags: Hero, Albert, Einstein, civil rights, Jewish, Nazis, physics, scientist,
Geographical Tags: German, Germany, Ulm, Switzerland, New York City, United States, Manhattan, Europe, European,
I got the Geographical Tags from Wikipedia. They represent places he has lived or has been associated with. You can focus the topical tags more, based on how you write the article.
If you include famous quotes from Einstein, then add to your tags: wisdom, philosophy, quotes, politics, government, citizens, social responsibility, reform, education, etc.
Great question, thanks for asking. Hope this helps.
