Ever since I became a mylotter, I would always question why do we submit tags before we can successfully post our discussion. What is it for?

I would like to know how we can skip the "tagging" process. It is like a three step process to just make one post.

You put tags on your discussion so other people will be able to find discussions that interest them. For example if you have a discussion talking about your cat you could tag the discussion cat, cats, pets, animals and then when someone types in cat in the search box it will bring up discussions about cats and bring up your post so they can respond to it. You can always skip the tags though too.

Hi friend Happy mylotting and wish you the best to reach 100.. Tags are just a clinch to link your discussion to the common word pool. Say if you give LOVE as tag, then your discussion will link to the pool of love and whenever somebody types LOVE in search column above then your discussion also will come part of the discussion which is having love has tag. Tags wont increase your earning directly but indirectly may attract people thru' common words. I use tags for starting discussion and rarely use for responses...
