The importance of tagging.

This is a twofold issue.

Two very good reasons to tag you posts correctly and help yourself as well as Leofinance.



Communities.



The new communities on Leofinance are only V1 but they have the potential to change how we use the site and hav ea wider appeal to outside viewers.

It's not as simple as just writing a good post however.

As part of the Leofinance ambassador team myself and leogrowth have the responsibility of adding content to certain communities.

My two are the coingecko and binance smart chain communities.

The only way that content from the main leofinance feed appears in these communities is if myself or leogrowth give it an upvote.

The only way that this works is if they have the correct tag o the post.

In this case #coingecko for the coingecko community or #BSC for the binance community.

At the moment I have noticed a lot of these posts tagged with #BNB or #Binance which will not work to build the community.

I have put in a request to increase the different tags that will be eligible but will have to wait and see if it is an easy fix.

If we are going to build a strong content wall for these communities then people need to use the correct tags so that they will show up in the right place.

The other sid eof it is when we are doing curation I will check out the correct tags every week for good posts so if they are not tagged correctly then they will probably not be seen by the curation team.



Higher search ranking is still the goal.



It might not seem like such a big deal but a lot of us with myself included tag a lot of random communities to try and get more visibility on our posts.

I tend to o with #blogging #hive #neoxian #bilpcoin #ctp as a standard to get seen by more people and maybe get a few extra upvotes.

For the most part this doesn't net you anything extra and hurts the SEO quality of your post.

It is a much better help for leofinance as a website if we all use a few appropriate tags for external use. If you are writing a good post about the latest game on binance then tag it with #gaming #bsc #crypto #playtoearn before adding in the other hive based tags.

Even a couple of relevant tags will be a help to the search engines trying to rank our content.

This is a petty step but as i always write.

Small steps lead to big results.

Every little win that we can make as a community will pay off in the long run and while adding #bitcoin to a post today might not seem like a lot of good. When we have thousands of post and a higher google rank it could make a big difference to our traffic.

I think those are some good points and I have been putting the relevant posts before I added the other hive based tags. All these things help and I have been trying to include the Leo Glossary terms into my posts as well.

It is very important to always use right tags when writing a post and I have making sure I do that this days

So the leofinance.io interface has trimmed the number of tags allowed on each post down to 8 (with the 9th leofinance tag automatically added).

I have been using the first 2 or 3 tags for post topics. Like you said, these are important for the user experience and to correctly organise the site.

I used to be against adding tags of other communities and just milking their rewards, but nobody seems to care and I've found using multiple community tags (with front-ends) is extremely helpful for getting the original leofinance version indexed by Google.

By using community tags, their front-end generates its own version of the post and includes a canonical link back to the original leofiance.io version.

The more versions we have, the more chance of Google picking it up and indexing the correct version.

@taskmaster4450, I know you're having issues with Google constantly indexing the hiveblog version of your glossary pages even though it is published via leofinance.

By adding a few community tags, it helps.
