SPECIAL OFFER: Get GoDaddy's Basic WordPress Hosting for just $1 per month: Select Basic Plan, then 12 months term.

In this video, we're going to look at WordPress tags and how they are different from categories.

Topher is using a sample post with the title "Classic Rock Concert In the Park!"

The text in the post is, "This Tuesday we'll be showcasing some of the greatest bands of the 60's and 70's. Be there or be square!"

Tags are keywords that you can use to organize your content. They are different from categories because:

- Tags have no parent / child structure.
- Tags also do not appear on the site's frontpage ... you have to visit the main post page to see the tags.
- Tags make it easier for Google and visitors to find your content.
