Join Patrick Rauland for an in-depth discussion in this video Prevent confusion with tags and categories, part of WordPress Plugins: SEO.
- [Instructor] Part of your SEO strategy…will likely be writing content,…and content in WordPress can be grouped…by tags and categories, and these groupings…can be browsed by Google.…One of the mistakes I often see…is when people try to rank for everything,…and they just confuse search engines…by competing with themselves.…On this post for example,…if we scroll down, you'll see that there is a category…called recipes and a tag called recipe.…Google won't know which one to send users to,…so you'll get some users on one page…and some on another.…
Your stats won't look impressive…since your users are being divided…into two different groups,…and it will be twice as much work…to optimize your landing pages.…Make this easy for Google and yourself…and don't have any crossover between categories and tags.…In this case, recipes as a category makes sense to me,…so I'd keep this category and remove this tag.…
