Complicated TagsWordPress has one great feature and that is the capability to categorize your content with tags. Most people, however, abuse this feature in a way by creating too many categories and tags. They mean well, but the outcome isn’t that good. Instead of making the usability of the website easier, they make it harder and the effect is negative.
It’s not only that too many categories make your website less appealing and difficult to navigate, it also affects your SEO and make your visitors leave your site. In addition, the page loading time can be affected.

To avoid all the negative effects, don't use complicated tags and categories. Instead, ensure that all your post are still in a category. Tagging of posts is optional but for the best SEO results of your posts, choose 1-3 keywords that are based on your post content. You should also look out for the worst mistake of categorization – never duplicate a category as a tag or the other way around. Both WordPress and Google only need one or the other.

Here is how you should do it:

Remember that if you have a wall of tags for a certain unique article, that’s not a good way to do the tagging because tagging in WordPress is not the same as tagging on Twitter.

Tags should have a connection with the article but should not be unique. A very good example of effectively using categories and tags is the Yoast website.
