Tags - Hashtags - Keywords

Personna Paper Allows Us to Make Meta Keyword Tags Just by Placing the # Sign Before a KeyWord

I have some questions.

- What about Long Tail Keywords?

Do I tag them like this ⇒ #Long-Tail-Keyword or

or ?

- Is there a maximum number of Keywords that can be tagged?

Keywords are just as important as ever. Hashtags are from another universe but can also be a game changer. With the change last year, by Google, making the old keyword tool worthless (my opinion), I now suggest using the following tools to pick Keywords and Hashtags

Rite Tag Hashtag - Keyword Discovery Tool or Tag Candy Hashtag - Keyword Discovery Tool

I use these to find hashtags for my posts on another website and find both tools extremely valuable. In fact, I use them both and find the tags that show up on both tools simultaneously to provide the best results. I would hope these tools help you increase your views as much as they have helped me.

How do you make tags with a space in between the words without a dash or underscore?

Javaman Thanks for the information, I am giving these two tools a try. Have a nice day.

Thanks for this useful info. I agree that right keywords are a tool of the past.

Those are actually links and not tags without spaces.

I have been using the long-tail-tag method. I guess it is okay as I have them in most of my posts.

There is no specific way to do long tail keywords. I would imagine you could use any of those appropriately.

As far as how many, we don't have a certain amount we allow or disallow. Just don't go overboard and tag words like and, or, etc. Be smart about the tags. And, tags only count for part of your character count if it's within the content. A list at the bottom does not count towards character counts.

Oops! Thanks for the answer MaeLou . I just read SandraLynn's post about how to link properly within a post.

It looks like all of your examples did work, Javaman . It probably depends on which of them each of us prefers.

javaman I have never really understood all that. Glad you did a post on it!

Ladyduck - Keywords may be a tool of the past but the function of keywords has been replaced by Hashtags. Somewhat the same logic for picking keywords works for Hashtags too.

MaeLou - Thank you for your reply. Does the PP code take our designation of a word as a tag and make a metakeyword code for that post?

Kembali Kasih Margielynn - Thats your welcome in Indonesian.

Thanks for the information about tags. I haven't started to use tags yet but will now look into doing so. When you say that the tags at the end of the article is not included in the minimum character count, does the characters counter that is available here on PersonaPaper automatically exclude those tags? And what about if the tags are included in the body of the article? Will the character counter take this into consideration? Or do we have to count the characters in our article elsewhere and just exclude the tags in the count?

Thanks for the information on tags, hashtags and keywords. I'm new to PersonaPaper so I've yet to use tags on the few articles that I have but will now look into doing so. Do you think it's better to place the tags within the body of the article or is it better if they're placed at the end of the article?

Javaman wrote on July 24, 2014, 11:41 AM

My personal preference is to put them at the end of the post / article. The reason why, and this is my opinion, is that when the search engine bots take a look at our posts, they have some specific things that they look at.

They look for keywords or tags in the following places.

Early in the Title
Somewhere in the subheading - which is the first sentence of the post
They look for tags / keywords related to the main one or two keywords, and like to see that two or three times within the post.
They also like to see a summary at the end. I try to put my main keywords there.

I also suspect that it helps if the tags are at the end.

FreyaYuki wrote on July 25, 2014, 12:11 PM

Thanks for this information. I was thinking of putting the tags at the end of my articles but hadn't considered these reasons. It's good if it helps to add the tags at the end of the post or if they're better off there. I'll be adding those tags to my articles now and will be placing them at the end.
