What is a Tag in WordPress?

Definition

A tag in WordPress is a taxonomy. Like a category, it is used to create structure and overview. You can both add a category and a tag to a post and product. The difference between a category and a tag is that a tag is typically more specific than a category.

Let’s take an example. If we have a webshop that sells clothes, you would use the category to define which piece of clothing it is, it could be trousers, for example. In this case, one would then use the tag to, for example, define which brand the pants are from. Here you have the category that just tells what kind of piece of clothing it is, and thus tagged to go more specifically and tell what brand it is from.
