The mistake that most people make with Blogging is using too many key words or tags. For some reason people seem to think the more the merrier when in reality, the fewer, more specific the better. Less really is better.
Think of it this way, tags are like going into a supermarket to buy tea. There are all kinds of teas available for purchase from bulk teas, to tea bags, to different brands of the same flavors. It can be confusing to try to pick just one. On the other hand, if you walk into a store and they only have ten choices, you will quickly pick one. Search engines work in the same manner. The more tags you have on your blog, the more confused they get and the farther down in the rankings your page ends up.
First, have a specific reason for your blog. Then pick five to a maximum of ten tags and use at least 3 of them on every blog. Use a tag in the title if possible. But don’t overload your blog post with so many tags so that it is hard to read or the writing doesn’t make sense.
Typically, if you need more than 10 tags, start a new blog. If you consistently practice this, you should see your blog move up in the search engines when someone types in one of your tags. Of course, it will also depend on how many websites you are competing against that practice minimal tagging.
