Are the WordPress tags death? What are they used for?
These tags are or were used to organize your content, not to rank it or promote it in any way, I said were used, because that tool was removed from the latest version of WordPress, since a lot of people were using the tags and categories, the same way, duplicating them.
Even though the tags on their own aren’t the best way to organize your content, and actually don’t work as an SEO tool, they are really helpful for your readers to find a specific post when your blog/website is huge and you have been blogging for ages, so combining them with categories and there are still many benefits of using them.
Are you using tags on your WordPress website?
A lot of people don’t really know what tags are used for and have been using them the wrong way, penalizing their own work, doing “tag stuffing”, adding popular but unrelated tags to their articles, trying to get people to click on their posts just earn one more click.
