How To Organize Categories And Tags For
WordPress Blogs
(4 Steps To Execute)
In todays article, we will let you know how to
rearrange categories and tags for your WordPress
blog posts in an easy way. This can be essential
for you if you have been blogging for quite a
while.

But before we let you get into those details, I
want to outline a short description of our web
design company in Los Angeles. Having grown more
than 500 businesses from an extremely lower
position, SFWP Experts has a record of
delivering the highest customer satisfaction in
the US. We offer more than a handful of

their conversion rates a boost. So, if you want
to leverage any of the services we provide or
your website has some specific need, ensure to
get in touch with us ASAP. With that out of the
way, now lets understand the whole concept of
taxonomy system in WordPress What Are The
Categories and Tags In WordPress And Why Its
Important? Categories and tags are parts of a
taxonomy system in WordPress that are used to
group posts written on the same topic. There are
multiple benefits of using categories and tags
for your blog posts. Firstly, it allows your
website visitors to find the content they are
looking for in one go. All it takes is clicking
on tags they want to acquire information about
and the next moment they will see a list of blog
posts written on that subject. Secondly, it
helps search engine crawlers to read and
understand your site easily. Once they get the
structure of your site, they can index your site
for the right search results as well as the
right users. Lets say you have created content
about how to install a WordPress theme. Now once
this blog is indexed you can rest assured it
will be read by those users only who want to
perform that task.

All in all, using categories and tags for your
WordPress posts helps you to deliver a great
user experience and achieve good rankings in
search engine results. Remember if you dont
organize your tags and categories in a neat and
clean manner, viewers will abandon your site
seeing unorganized tag systems. And to be frank
this will reduce your website usability,
increase your bounce rate, and affect your
SEO. Have you been blogging for over a couple of
years? Chances are your categories and tags
would have messed up resulting in a high bounce
rate. Dont panic, this can be handled if you
take actions in the early stage. Either recheck
and reassign the right category and tag to your
blog posts or allow us to do the same for you.
Our reputed Wordpress website design company has
plenty of design professionals to simplify the
blog search and navigation of your site. What
Are The Best Practices To Arrange Your
Blogs? Categories and Blogs in WordPress can be
understood as a table of content that we usually
see on the initial pages of a book. It gives you
a brief idea about what you are going to find in
that book. Similarly, when you will look at the
categories a blog site covers, you will easily
understand what you are going to find ahead. To
make things more clear, I will let you know how
categories work. They are like static elements
of your WordPress website that wont change over
time. It shows what topics are covered in your
blogs and what your users will get to know after
going through them. Besides that, tags are more
focussed on specific topics within different
categories. A blog post can have more than one
tag but it will fall in just one category.

  • If I explain to you a general example, you will
    perceive the whole concept of categories and
    tags in a better way. Lets say you are planning
    to start a new blog about a local gym. Now think
    about what categories can you create?
  • That can be
  • Nutrition
  • Exercises
  • News
  • Now put some pressure on your mind for the second
    time and think what tags you can generate for
    these categories.
  • That can be
  • Gym equipment
  • Weight Loss
  • Essential foods
  • Once you have created your WordPress blog site
    including these categories and blogs, you can
    think yourself how easy it would be for your
    users to find the content they want. Lets say
    they want to know what foods they should eat for
    weight loss. In that case, they can easily go to
    the Nutritions category and look for weight loss
    articles.
  • I hope you have nicely comprehended the concept
    of categories and tags from the above
    explanation. Now its time to move to the next
    topic in this content - how to clean your
    categories and tags. But before we reach there,
    I want to tell you that you can collaborate with
    us if you are considering creating a brand new
    blog site for your company. At our Los Angeles
    web design company, there are several
    accomplished designers and

WordPress developer experts to meet your website
needs on-time and on-budget. 4 Steps To Organize
Categories And Tags For WordPress Blogs Step
1 Delete Tags That Are Not Used Anymore If your
WordPress blog site contains tags that have never
been assigned to any article, simply delete them
without thinking twice. To do this, all you need
to do is go to Posts gt Tags in your WordPress
dashboard. In the top right corner of the page,
you will find Count. Just click on that and
you will see a long list of tags that have
appeared on your screen showing how many times
each of them is used in your blogs. Go through
all of them one by one and delete any tag that
has not been used even a single time. Step 2
Merge Tags That Looks Similar After you have
removed the tags that have not been assigned to
even a single post, you need to check out the
rest of the tags individually. Check if any of
them looks similar to other tags in the list and
if they do merge them into one. To execute this
step, you need to head over Posts gt Tags and then
select similar tags. Take for instance the gym
equipment and using gym equipment tags. Both
look similar to each other so they can be picked
to merge.

In the same way, you need to check all the tags
and use your intellect to determine whether two
tags can be merged or not. This will not only
help you, readers, to quickly find the content
they are looking for but they will more likely
take interest in reading other content related to
the same topic. Step 3 Install A Redirection
Plugin The next thing you need to do is deploy a
redirection system in your blog site. To carry
out this step, you need to go to Plugins gt Add
New and then search redirection plugin. Once you
get it, click on the Install button and then
Activate. Post this, you need to click on the
new option shown in the menu items and then
navigate to Tools gt Redirection. This will open a
new page on your computer screen where you have
to look for the Add new redirection section.
There you need to enter the exact URL of your
blog and then click on the Add Redirection
button. Step 4 Add The New Tag Where Old Tags
Have Been Used Since you have already merged
two tags in the above step, now its time to
deploy the new tag on the job. You will have to
search all the posts where the old tag has been
used and then replace it with the new one. To
complete this step, you need to head to Posts gt
Tags and search for your old tag. Once you have
got that, click on the number displaying under
7
the Count column on the right side of the page.
The next second you will see all the posts that
have been allotted this tag. Now you need not do
much, just click on Quick Edit under each post
and replace the old tag by the new one. So,
this way you can organize your tags and
categories in a simple and easy manner. In case,
you dont find it comfortable carrying out all
these steps yourself, you can hire our Los
Angeles web design company - SFWPExperts to do
this job. Besides that, if you want to publish
high-quality, well-written articles on your
website, you can have a word with our companys
representative and then they will guide you

tags might not look like an important task to
you, but it is. The sooner you organize your tags
and categories, the better benefits you will
reap in the future. Dont forget, whatever you
are doing as a blogger, everything is for
getting the highest attention of your users. You
want them to visit your site repeatedly, spend
more time with your content, and more
importantly, contribute to your blog
monetization. All this can be done only when you
offer them a good user experience. And to do
that, blog arrangement is one of the best ways
that lets them quickly find whatever information
