Question Do You Add Tags To The Threads You Start?

Has anyone ever noticed and utilized the 'tagging bar' at the bottom of a thread that you start?

I've tagged ingredients when I posted a recipe. Otherwise, not so much.

Yes I have when posting a recipe. Above the reply box there is a place to add tags with commas between each.

Curious, why tag some posts but not all then?

I never do, but maybe I should?

Tagging threads helps folks who are searching the `Net find topics, key words and it will direct folks to DC and all of our shining faces

I tag recipes not random chat threads.

I haven't yet. This shows how much I know about message boards , but I always thought that the forum software picked up on keywords in a new post and automatically tagged them.

I can see where it would be helpful to add new ones, though. Hmmm...I learn something new every day here.

The forum software does use keywords in posts and titles. Particularly with a site as busy as DC, which is likely to be crawled for new posts every day, tagging recipes with keywords is not as important to search engine optimization as it used to be.
