WordPress - Using Tags
Tags are used in WordPress to aid navigation and allow posts to be grouped with similar content. Every post may be filed under multiple, unique Tags. Tags differ from categories in that Tags have no hierarchy, so no parent/child system needs to be defined.
Depending on the theme you're using, Tags are displayed under each post. When someone viewing your blog clicks on one of these Tag links, a Tag archive page will appear displaying all the posts that have been have been tagged.
