In the previous post about tags and tag cloud, we learned two things.
First, tags displayed as tag cloud on the homepage of a blog site serve as navigation tool. The reader who wishes to read a page needs only to click on a tag and it will open up to the page where the tag is linked.
Second, the tags displayed in the tag cloud are indexed within Google. This enhances the overall content of your blog.
To show that indeed Google indexes the tags that are displayed in the tag cloud, we studied the Central Philippine University Blog.
Central Philippine University Blog was created on May 23, 2011 and so far it has 18 posted articles. Counting the three main categories, the site has 21 pages.
However, Google sees it differently.
Using Google search, we determined the number of pages that were indexed within Google for Central Philippine University Blog. There are 175 pages. The image below illustrates how this is done.
In determining what comprises the 175 pages that Google had indexed of Central Philippine University Blog’s content, we browsed further the simple site analysis that we did using Google. From the image shown below, we could clearly see how Google had counted the tags as domain page.
