I read this post from PCPro that advocates tagging posts to get the best SEO results.
Now I don’t doubt that that is the case when blogging about a specific subject but the problem I have with it is that when blogging about technologies, especially Microsoft technologies this can quickly get out of hand.
If I post a blog about Microsoft CRM then the chances are that it will contain references to, for example, SharePoint and SQL Reporting Services. Now to be a good tagger I need to tag such a post with:
- Microsoft CRM
- Microsoft Dynamics CRM
- Dynamics CRM
- SharePoint 2007
- Microsoft Office SharePoint 2007
- MOSS 2007
- Reporting Services
- SQL Reporting Services
and so on. You get the idea.
So does anyone have any reference to a viable taxonomy that we can work to, is it viable to consider such an idea or what do you work to?
