WooCommerce Product Tags Management

Product tags are descriptive labels placed on goods. Assigning a product tag to a bunch of products is another way to gather them into certain groups.

Tags can not only describe some of your product features, but also mark items as on sale or presented in new collection. Usually product tags are more specific than categories, so filtering goods via tags is very convenient for both shoppers and merchants.

How to Add WooCommerce Product Tag From Admin Side?

  1. From the admin panel go to 'Products' => 'Tags';

    Product Tags And SEO

    Product tags are also good for SEO. Taking into account that tags are very similar to search queries, web crawlers may use them to get some information about the content on your website. But make sure there are not too much tags on a page, because a search engine can consider it as keyword stuffing and take some penalizing measures.

hi!
I am using tags on my products page, but they are not displayed on the user end.
Do tags need to be displayed to help SEO or it doesn'tmatter? If so, is there an easy way (no coding) to display them?

Hi!
If you are using tags on the products page, but they are not displayed on the user end, it’s most probably because of your theme settings. If you are not into coding, it would be better to ask a developer for help.

As for your second question “Do tags need to be displayed to help SEO”, it’s best to check on the Google guidelines for eCommerce websites.
