I have written a couple of blog posts and I can see a box on the right hand side where you can add 'Tags'.  Does anybody know what they are?  And then how do I decide which tags to use?  Many thanks.

You can use tags to help visitors zero in on posts of a certain type. The tags will depend on how you think customers will want to locate content on your site.

And you already have tags assigned on your posts!

But how do visitors use the tags?  Are they in Google searches, or searches on my website?  I really don't understand... I did put a couple of Tags, but I wasn't sure if I was doing it right, lol.

I think of tags on blog as categories that help visitors zero in on what they want to read. Maybe New Products or Such and Such Tips or How Tos.

OK, so you can only search those Tags whilst on my website?  They wouldn't appear on a Google search?

Google will see them as words on the page. But they are also intended for visitors to filter content. Some use them to make a keyword "cloud."
