Do you need tags in your blogs for them to be searchable through your blog search?

Hi Donald,
Nope, you do not need to be using the tags widget for the blog search to work.

well... you can get rid of your tag widget and still have tags for each of your blog posts. If I don't bother with adding any tags on each of my blog posts, visitors can still search for a blog correct? Basically what I am wondering is, does the blog search search through the blogs themselves or the tags connected to the blogs?

Hello Donald and Glynis,

The blog search will search through the blog content, not the tags. If the blog search finds the words in the content, it will return it as a result.

You are not able though to give your individual blog posts "meta tags", but you can add mega tags to the blog page itself. For each individual blog post the blog title will become the "title tag", but the description and keywords tag will be the same as the main blog page.

Hope this helps!
