We get this question a lot: “When organizing my WordPress posts, should I use categories or tags… or both?” The answer is not as complicated as you might think.
There are several benefits to using tags and categories. Grouping your posts by category or tag can help users navigate your website, discover new content, and better understand the value of your content. Additionally, tags and categories can actually help drive traffic to your website. At first glance, these two grouping mechanisms can seem very similar, but they do have some very distinct differences.
