A tag is a keyword that author assign to his post to describe or identify the content like subject of post, type of post, people involved etc. This helps readers searching for a particular type post using same tags.
This is the point to debate whether tags are recognized by search engines or not. One group of people says, Search engines crawling tags as they are treated like keywords. On other hand, some says tags do not help search engines to add you to their databases. Although there is no harm till you are using tags appropriately.
You may put number of tags for single post. So always thinking and keeping tags for each and every post will be difficult and time consuming. Today I will show you how you can generate auto tags for your each post. So there is no need to think about which tags you should use.
