Tags vs Categories

Here’s a resource I wanted to share during today’s WordPress training, explaining the difference between categories and tags: http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2007/09/22/tags-and-categories/

“As best as I can explain it, categories are things you create ahead of time and only have a few of. Imagine them like sections of your site. The signs on aisles of grocery stores. Tags are one-off keywords attached to a post. You may add a tag to a post that you’ll never use ever again. Categories are meant to be permanent, tags are ephemeral.” – Matt Mullenweg, WordPress Author
