Can someone tell me how to tag?

Hi Everyone! I am new to this site. I have skimmed over the rules and stuff and I have responded to a couple of discussions. But when the screen pops up asking me to tag the discussion I don't know what to put. Can someone help me please? Have a lovely day! Hartley

When it says submit tags you just use a word or two or more to desribe the topic. For instance, I will tag this reply as "tagging" and Hartley.

Now, see, at the bottom of your discussions are the tags that I used. You'll get the hang of this place pretty quickly :)

Hi Fwidman! Yes I do see. So I should put something in there that describes the discussion? What if I don't look to see the ones that are already on there? I mean, is it ok to put something that was not there already? Thank you! Hartley

It would be perfectly fine if you put a tag that is already there :) They won't put the same tag twice, so no one but you will ever know.

Hi Hartley, welcome to myLot! Tagging is describing your post in one word, like this one you could tag this as 'tag' and 'discussion.' Tagging is a way for your post to appear in search or to be included in similar discussion. Let say I created another discussion like 'will tagging improve my earning?' and i would tag it as 'tag', when somebody responded to my discussion your post will appear too in similar discussion. This improve the visibility of your discussion that will attract responders. The more responders the more we earn.) Have a good day.

Hi ferdzNK! Thank you for telling me that. I did notice when I first started this there was nothing under the page showing the discussion and now there is. I guess its the tags that do that right? Thanks! Hartley

Sure is. One more thing, each discussion is limited to 5 tags only, adding more will just be ignored.

Tagging is like putting in keywords or phrases that would help draw someone to your discussion. Tag words for your question would be tagging, or how to tag, and maybe your name. I'm relatively new still, too, and your question is a good one. Others will learn from the responses you get from the nice mylotters who share their expertise.
