TUTORIALS ON EFFECTIVE USE OF TAGS ON STEEMIT BLOCKCHAIN AS A STEEMAIN
Basically tags are use on Steemit to help categorizes our posts to make people easy to search for your information. Using the right tags for our post helps the right people who may have interest in your post Sees it easily and identify it too. People normally use wrong tags for the right post.
Last week as we were doing our crosses and checks on our members we found these tags under a steemain's post.
These tags prompted us to be time on time educate our community especially our newcomers on the effective use of tags on our posts. Upon trying to contact some individuals on how to use tags effectively, the person was contemplating with these two Mentioning and tags. As I said earlier,
Where Can we Put Each In A Post?
This is what we called mention. It is been done within our post by recommending a good work someone is doing. But this act shouldn't be frequently seen in our post.
That's where we insert the category we want them to see our post. #Tagging individuals at the tag section in other words means begging for votes and this is the act we want all steemains to stop. We need to let our posts speak for themselves but rather not begging.
Writing about promoting Steemit:
• Steemit etc
Writing A Story:
• lifestyle etc
Writing About A Contest:
• the contest tag is stated in the post.
• Your country etc
Currently you can use up to 8 tags. The tags should always be in "Lower Case" example "steemexclusive" and not "Steemexclusive " . Each tag should be separated by a space by a click on the space bar example 'steemexclusive betterlife lifestyle'. A hyphen may be introduce when needed for example 'steem-ghana' promo-steem' etc.
A post can be written directly on someone's blog or in a community. When a post is written in a community, then it means the first tag is the community in which the person is writing to. For instance, I am writing about promoting Steemit . I will start by:
Clicking on the communities and choose the appropriate community as a tag, your post is about and you want them see it.
Here my post is s about promoting Steemit so I will choose promosteem as my community, this automatically means my first tag is promosteem since they will be the first community they will see my post.
Afterwards clicking on promosteem above another face will appear. Here you can now see you are in the midst of promosteem community. Click on post button there and another page will open for you.
On top here you can see posting to community promosteem, therefore the promosteem has been your first that of people that will receive your post.
