Bonus benefit of using 10 proper tags: MORE of the RIGHT people read your stuff.

It's better to have a few people read my blog posts that are interested than a horde of people that aren't.

I keep writing about this because it matters.

Tribe condenser websites use tags to know what to display.

If you write a post and use a tag that's associated with a community, then your post appears on their front-end condenser website - potentially netting you more people who may read your post.

Example: I write a post and it's about financing, and I tag it with #leofinance, that earns me leo. It ALSO means that my post would appear on https://leofinance.io/ and peakd, hive.blog, etc.

That's huge.

This isn't always the case, because tribes can configure their front-end condenser to NOT include posts that use certain tags they don't want. So if you 'double tag' your post with two different tags and one of them is blocked from appearing on a condenser, your post won't appear. Sorry.

Leverage multiple UIs with the right tags.

If I do the same thing with CTP, POB, etc. and my post is relevant to all of them, I should expect to receive more readership.

More readership leads to more upvotes, which leads to more earnings. Bam!

Tags define you and your posts so choose wisely.

Tracking my online marketing efforts over the past while has helped me understand that it's better to have a few people read my blog posts that are interested than a horde of people that aren't.

Hive blockchain is the same way. I am a firm believer that it's not the quantity of people reading my post - it's the QUALITY of the audience that matters.

Therefore don't tag spam. It does you no good. Instead, carefully choose tags that relate to what you write and watch your readership increase. Otherwise you will have uninterested people read or skim your stuff and not interact.

A good example of this is SplinterLands content. Yeah I love reading it and don't mind when it appears on some of the condensers I use. But if I really want to read Splinterlands, I'll use splintertalk.io.

Since there's such a glut of brand new people to Splinterlands and therefore Hive, I find that as some of these new folks start learning how tags work, they overuse them or tag material with popular tags just to get their material seen without thinking about the fact that the audience is the wrong one. All that to say choose the right tags to get the right people to read your stuff.

I hope this series of posts I am writing on this has helped. I know the feedback so far has been positive. I'll keep writing about the very basic mechanics of this if you are interested.

Peace and Love,

-Rob

Quality over quantity any day of the week!

Out of curiosity is there a known list of communities/tribes that do not allow competing tags content to be shown?
