It’s easy to be confused about categories and tags in WordPress. They both work in similar ways by letting you structure and organize content. There are however, a few key differences.
So What’s The Difference Between Tags And Categories?
According to WordPress, categories are best suited for broad groupings of topics, while you can use tags to group specific content in more detail.
By sustaining set of categories, you can keep your website and your content organised. And tags only come in when you need to organise that same content even further.
Imagine a group of animals. Now you can start broadly grouping them into warm and cold-blooded animals, like categories. And within each group, you can group them further into sub-categories, like mammals and birds within the warm-blooded group. And that’s what tags do.
Sort Your Content Well
It’s no doubt that categories and tags in WordPress are very important features when it comes to organizing your website content and making sure that your site is easy to navigate for users.
