The basics of tagging.


Tags are like labels. You use them to describe, categorize and define your Tackk's content.

Dishing your favorite pumpkin treats? That's "recipe." Hocking your bike? For sale. Tackking something ha-larious? Humor. Adding tags makes your Tackk infinitely more findable because you're putting it in categories viewers seek and understand.

It's super easy to do. Scroll to the bottom of your Tackk. You'll see a gray bar that says, "Add tags to your Tackk." All tags, whatever kind, go here. So? Have at it!

Let's talk about tags and Tackkboards.

Tackkboards are collections of Tackks. Like these recipe Tackks. How did they get on that board? Each Tackk-creator added the "recipe" tag to the bottom of his Tackk... and voila! It really is that simple.

You can add multiple tags to further define your content. Consider this pumpkin recipe Tackk. It's tagged recipe, pumpkin and savory, which makes it appear on each of those Tackkboards.

Better still: you can use secondary tags to filter larger Tackkboards. Let's say you're looking for pumpkin recipes. Start with the recipe board. Using the bar at the top, filter for pumpkin. The recipe + pumpkin board shows only recipes tagged pumpkin. Don't have a sweet tooth? Sort further to see only the savory pumpkin recipes.

How to choose a tag (or two).

Don't overthink it. Take a few seconds to consider what categories apply to your content. Start big, whittle down. One tag is great. Two to three tags, optimal.

We're also here to help. Start typing a tag. We'll show you recommended tags and how many Tackks use them. The suggestions can help you choose your phrasing.

Check out the above image. The tag infographic has 13 Tackks, infographics has one. That tells you more people are using (and will likely search) for infographic.
