Tips on Tags in Postach.io
Whatever source you chose to use when publishing to Postach.io, it’s important to understand the value of tags and how they influence the way content is displayed on your site.
In Evernote, the “published" tag simply tells Evernote to post content to Postach.io.
In Evernote, to create a static page, tag it “page".
When you tag a post with ‘page’, you are creating a new static page - this is not a new stream of content, but rather a single post accessible from the main page. This is useful if you want to create an “About Me" or “Contact" page for your site. You may also want to feature your best work within individual static pages to make them easy to find.
The title of a post tagged with ‘page' will appear on your site's navigation bar along with ‘blog’, which acts as the default title for your site's home page (this can be changed to another name from within your site’s source code).
Using Tags As Categories
To create a list of posts by category in your site, simply tag a number of posts with the same tag. You’ll be able to see the list of posts at - your site.com/tag/tag-name - for more information about integrating this with your site navigation, follow these steps.
Search Engine Optimization
As a part a post’s metadata, tags do have a legitimate influence on SEO. With that being said, it’s important that you use tags that actually match the keywords used in your posts. If they are not relevant to the content within the post, these tags could actually have a negative effect on your SEO.
In order to make it easy to find new content, Discover acts as a real time feed to showcase posts created by other Postach.io users. The sub categories of Discover currently include #food, #travel, #education, #design #technology. If your post contains any one of these tags, it will show up within the correlating section. This will help other users find content relevant to their interests.
Remember: don’t use tags that don’t relate to your content.
