submit tags?

March 30, 2007 10:29am CST
ok, i have no real clue why every time i post i get asked to submit tags for discussions? i understand that when i make a new discussion it can be helpful to give key words to that discussion so that it is easier to classify. but, why do i need to submit tags to something i am just responding to? i mean surly the person who started the topic would have submitted them in the first place? and if tag submission is so important, then why have the skip button?

If you are doing an online business promotion and want to be found, someone might find your post through that tag. The more your interests are exposed, the greater your networking potential is.

SOmetimes if you bring something new in to the subject then you should add tags. It also means the the adverts around the post will be more relevent therefore bringing more money to mylot adn therefore us. It is good to do it too cos it means when people search they will get better results. Welcome to myLot and if you stick to the guidelines you will see you earn more.
