Tags make it easier for readers to find posts about a specific topic on your blog. e.g. Tag your photographs with photography or your trip posts with travel.
It’s easy! When you create a post, enter the tags in the last field of the form. If you’re using the bookmarklet, go to “Advanced” to enter tags.
Yes, but only if you’re using certain themes. You can find themes that list tags with each post in the Theme Garden. Even if a theme doesn’t show post tags, your tags can still be searched across Tumblr.
You can add tags to keep your posts organized, but they will only be searchable through your blog, not the rest of Tumblr.
You can learn more about searching tags on our search results page.
Tracked tags are a great way to follow your passions on Tumblr! You can access your tracked tags by clicking the “Search tags” box at the top of your Dashboard. New posts will be reflected in the number below the tag name. This number will not appear if you’re tracking more than 20 tags.
Pro-tip: Hit the tab key and your tracked tags will pop open in a menu on your Dashboard.
To direct users to all posts with a specific tag, just use tag links that start with your blog’s web address and include the specific tags you want to reference.
These tag filter links will only show the 200 most recent posts with that tag in reverse chronological (latest posts on top).
To display posts in chronological order (older posts on top), add /chrono to the end of the tag URL (i.e. http://staff.tumblr.com/tagged/features/chrono).
