- Increases your Web visibility
- Tags are visible metadata which makes it more trust-worthy by the Search engines, unlike Meta tags.
The way that content is delivered, however, is constantly changing, and it
is important for anyone who does business or generates revenue via the internet to understand the changing nature of web searching and web site content.

It makes it more accessible for other visitors to find relevant content or content which is tagged by other members very easily increasing its accessibility.
Tagging efficiently will make your content appear under all related keyword searches and though tagging and key words are two totally different terms but work in a similar way when pulling your content on search engines, so tag your content with equal care. The same post can tagged under different category by different people.
