I'm curious... is using the Cloud Tag widget for Word Press blog a good idea or not? Will it help with SEO?

Thanks,

John

    Those floating clouds are cool... I don't know how much they help with SEO, but I gues it doesn't hurt to have your keywords (tags) on every page.

    I like them as a user. If it looks good and helps your users, that's a good reason to use tag clouds.

      Thank you.

      Quick follow up question... does having a Cloud Tag on your blog reveal your keywords to your competitors?

        John, if you have meta tags on your site then they can see your keywords anyway by calling up your site and going to View/Page Source.

    I have seen these tag clouds, but I don't understand the purpose of them. How do I use them as a visitor to the site?

      Clicking on any of the words or phrases will bring up the blog posts tagged with those words. It's a quick and easy way to find posts of interest to you.
