how to use tags and categories in squarespace blog posts

No matter what type of website you run, you probably have a blog section (here's why).

Blogs are incredibly powerful tools that support your business in many ways. They can be used to drive traffic to your website, share your thoughts and ideas with your audience, add commentary about important industry issues, conduct interview with experts in your field, highlight product or services features, build SEO, and so much more.

But while it's one thing to create awesome content for your blog, it's another thing to set up your blog correctly.

One thing that I see many people doing on their websites is that they don't set up tags and categories in their blog posts. They are missing out on a simple but important step that takes only seconds to set up! Don't let that be you. If you're going to blog, do it properly and get better results.

I've created a short video tutorial to go along with this post to show you how easy it is to use tags and categories in your Squarespace blog posts.

Let's get started!
