I love doing discussion posts because I always learn something – or at least I have another question to ask. LOL
This time I have a question for all of you WordPress bloggers.
Ever since I have been blogging I’ve been using categories and tags on my WordPress posts. Both are useful to me (and hopefully to others) to categorize my posts.
A comment from my previous post about using Hashtags brings up this question:
Should we be using the # symbol in our WordPress tags?
I never have… but should I have been?
Thanks in advance.I have SO much to learn!
UPDATE: I received an answer to the question.
Benjamin Thomas (The Writing Train) says:
“It isn’t necessary to use # with WordPress for blogging. Unless, you wanted to track your site/blog by using a plugin. The use of categories and tagging is sufficient if you want to have your site optimized by search engines and ranking higher for easy access.”
Thanks SO much to everyone who weighed-in on this subject.
