Do Shopify Tags Help SEO?

Do shopify tags, help SEO. Welcome to Casey’s SEO. So if you guys have a shopify website and you’re thinking about adding tags to help your SEO, well, tags aren’t actually going to help your SEO, but what they do come in handy for is navigation. But back in the day, tags used to help with your SEO. Now it’s just more of the category pages.

If you have a lot of backlinks going to your category pages, it makes those category pages a lot more powerful. You could rank for those a lot quicker than an actual product page. But back to the tags, they’re typically used just for navigation. So let’s say you have 100 different t shirts. You may have 50 different tags, and you’re going to add each shirt to a specific tag.

And then under a category, you may have a list of tags. So from a navigational standpoint, you can click on the category page and then branch out into different tags or subcategories. So essentially it’s just going to help with your navigation. It might help with your SEO just a little bit, but don’t actually count on it. So do not add tags just from an SEO standpoint.

Use it if it fits your website with your navigation. So I hope you guys enjoyed this little tip. And make sure to hit that subscribe button for more SEO tips.
