Automated Editor can do a bunch of neat stuff with tags but one of the most popular uses with our beta users was the assignment of “common tags”, that is tags which we regularly use as bloggers but either sometimes forget to enter or just cba too. So here’s how you can use Automated Editor to take the pain out of tagging (at least the common stuff!)
Say your blog was about cooking, for example and you quite often use 5 main ingredients, of which you have to tag every time:
- Salt & Pepper
- Feta cheese
- Olive Oil
- Set up a rule for each tag, e.g. “Tag post with Garlic”, “Tag post with Chilli” etc.
- Set up a schedule for each tag, e.g. “Run rule ‘garlictag’ on ‘Posts containing string Garlic’ at ‘Point of publishing’”
- Turn it on and never have to tag those words again!
