How to fix WordPress tags today, I am going to talk about WordPress tags so that you can use them better and keep your blog structure clean.
What are WordPress tags?
Okay, I have to start by saying that tags and categories are completely different things.
But both categories and tags help organize your content.
I always suggest using only 1 category/post but I use multiple tags/posts. Although one of the most common mistakes is that people use a lot of unnecessary tags in a post.
Tags help find more relevant content within your blog and also help to reduce bounce rates. But people have a habit of using 10-15 tags (i.e. tag spamming) in a single post. For a long time, they over-load their WordPress database with tags for each post.
My recommendation is to use tags that you can reuse for long periods of time.
For example, I will put this post under a single category: WordPress.
I’ll add some tags: WordPress Tag, WordPress Tutorial, WordPress Optimization, etc.
I will reuse these tags in future posts and readers can click on a tag name which is interested in finding them more relevant content.
If you maintain a WordPress blog that has many tags and categories, then you may have to face a problem as I was experiencing:
Specifically, if you run a multi-author blog, you can eliminate many tags with 0 posts or duplicate tags (similar tags, mistyped tags, etc.). It may take some time to clear your tags, but if you maintain a weekly or monthly blog cleanup day, then you want to take care of these tags and keep them organized.
Tags are very useful for solving your articles, and they are very useful to display related content.
How to remove all tags in WordPress with 0 posts
To clean the tag we are doing the first thing that is removing all unused tags.
Go to your WP Admin Dashboard and click on “Post Tag” in the “Post” section. Click the on-screen option in the top right and change the number to any number greater than 100. This will ensure that you remove all tags immediately with 0 tags.
Now click on “Post” in the right-hand column shown in the picture. You now have all the sorted tags in the order of the number of posts associated with that tag. Select all the tags with 0 posts and click on “Delete”
Important: Do not forget to back up your WordPress database before doing any of the above tasks!
