7. Tag Your Posts

Tags (like links) are easily noticed by search engines. They're also key to helping readers find your blog when they perform searches on popular blog search engines such as Technorati.

Tag: Keyword used to identify a piece of information such as a web page. Tags can be used for social bookmarking and as a device to ping search engines.
Also Known As: metatag.
