Use Categories to Get Discovered

People can add specific tags and topics in their WordPress.com Reader for topics they’re interested in following. Then, when your post uses a category they’ve added to their topics, they’ll see your post in their Reader. Therefore, assigning tags and categories to your post increases the chance that other WordPress.com users will see your content.

However, you don’t want irrelevant content on the topics listings or search, and neither do we. That’s why we limit the number of tags and categories used on a public topic listing. Five to 15 tags/categories is a good number to add to each of your posts. The more categories you use, the less likely your post will be selected for inclusion in the topics listings. Learn more about Topics here.

  • On your menu for visitors to view posts of a specific category.
  • On particular pages that use blocks that filter posts by category, like the Query Loop or Blog Posts blocks.
  • In the available sidebars or widget areas of your theme.

Usa categorías para ser descubierto

Las personas pueden agregar etiquetas y temas específicos en su Lector de WordPress.com para temas que les interese seguir. Luego, cuando su publicación use una categoría que hayan agregado a sus temas , verán su publicación en su Lector. Por lo tanto, asignar etiquetas y categorías a su publicación aumenta la posibilidad de que otros usuarios de WordPress.com vean su contenido.

Sin embargo , no desea contenido irrelevante en las listas de temas o en la búsqueda, y nosotros tampoco. Es por eso que limitamos la cantidad de etiquetas y categorías que se usan en una lista de temas públicos. De cinco a 15 etiquetas/categorías es un buen número para agregar a cada una de tus publicaciones. Cuantas más categorías utilice, es menos probable que su publicación sea seleccionada para su inclusión en las listas de temas. Obtenga más información sobre los temas aquí.
