What is a tag?
A tag is a key word or phrase associated with an article or event as a means of classification.
How do I create a tag?
In the Tags box, type your word or phrase and press Enter. A grey box will appear around the words you have typed, signifying that they have been converted to a tag. You can then enter aditional tags.
What do Tags do?
Think of a tag as a digital bookmark, it is a way of attaching a label to a piece of content. The label is then read by the system and tells the article or event where to appear on the Hub.
By using keywords as tags, they can help a user to find your content when searching the Hub through the Search facility.
How many Tags can I have?
An article or Event can have multiple Tags, so you can get your content to all of the places you wish it to appear.
Are there any restrictions?
Tags must have at least three characters. They can only contain plain text, ie. letters or numbers. You cannot use special characters such as "&" in a tag.
How does Tagging work on the Hub?
There are three ways tagging works on the hub:
- It tells your Article or Event where to appear,
e.g if you want your article about flowers to appear on the House and Garden Hub, then tag it with 'garden hub' and your article will appear in that section. A full list of the tags for interest hub pages can be found here.
- It enables you to sort your content on your Profile page using Categories.
e.g if you had a category called 'Our Services' with the tag 'Support Services'. Then all the pieces of content that you tag with 'Support Services' will appear when you click on the category title.
- It helps users search the Hub to find the content they want.
Use keywords as tags that a user may search for, e.g if I had an article about flowers, I might tag it with 'flowers', 'gardening', 'flower arranging'. If a user then searched for any of those terms your article or event will appear in the search results.
