Do you use keywords in tags, categories and slugs?

I was wondering do you use keywords that you are targeting in your tags and categories and slugs on your wp blogs. Do you just put the keywords you targeting in the title description and post or do you put it in the categories and tags, slug to. Can anybody clarify on this topic thanks so much

Yup. I use keywords in most of my tags and categories considering the fact that it may help my SEO ranking in search engines. This business is "try and learn" routine..

For on-page SEO, you must include your keyword in 4 places:
title tag
description
URL
Headline (H1 tag)

Plus, you should include it occasionally within the text of your post.

Categories, tags, etc. are a nice addition. But you really need the top 4.

It's a good idea to use keywords in title.
But i don't suggest you to use TAG as some themes have inbuilt function to use tags as kwywords ; Just use a good SEO plugin.

I personally use it. It won't hurt your site at all so why not use it ? Besides, they are there to be filled in by your targeted keywords.

Don't you worry about duplicate content with the tag pages created?

I use the tags to help longtail the searches for my title content..images with alt within the post help with this as well.
