The Tag Cloud newly re-invented

Tag Clouds (or Keyword Clouds, Term Clouds) offer a more interesting and intuitive approach for website navigation than standard navigation bars. They provide visitors with an instant illustration of the main topics of your Website’s content. The main advantage of tag clouds lies in their ability to highlight the most popular subjects dynamically. Due to their visually appealing appearance, tag clouds gained tremendously in popularity over the past few years.

The tag cloud is definitely an important tool you should consider using on your website or blog, especially if you use tags in your posts and pages, giving your Website’s visitors an instant overview of what your content is all about. A well designed Tag Cloud on your website can be the most important navigation, here’s why:

  • Makes the navigation easier
  • You can collect the relevant information in one block
  • SEO friendly
  • Helps to categorize your content
  • Can be a spectacular part of your site

Actually, the very first Tag Cloud was introduced in Germany already in 1992. Over-saturation of the tag cloud method as a web-navigation tool led to a decline of usage.

Tag Cloud Navigation WidgetsNearly all Content Management Systems (CMS), like WordPress, automatically create a tag cloud of your most popular tags. Its Tag Cloud widget is helpful because it gives your readers an at-a-glance view of what topics you write about most frequently. The most common tags will be displayed in the largest font size.

The default Tag Cloud Widget that ships with the basic WordPress installation lacks some important features. Website designers didn’t really have that much of a choice in custom designing tag clouds. The few who did, still missed out on important functionality, such as link click tracking and Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

Now, tags aren’t simply a collection of random keywords anymore. Webmasters try their best to incorporate as many relevant and popular keywords into the tag cloud as possible. For this, they use tools such as SEMrush. SEMrush is a wonderful resource for people looking to find the best keywords that they can use in the form of tags on their website.
