So, I want to do something that I used to do on Tumblr. On Tumblr, I made a big post talking about the issues and problems I found with the site and I made that post in great detail. With WordPress, I found a lot of new issues, old issues that got somewhat worse, and just other things I am confused about.
WordPress reader tags (And this can apply to search)
These are very important and a good way to find what you are looking for, rather than trying to search for it without tags, making it harder. Tags are good for getting your posts found on WordPress reader and other sites.
Why am I talking about tags now? Well, I mentioned before that the NSFW tag was being cleaned up of bots and spam accounts but some posts got caught in the crossfire and wiped out from the tag.
And now today, some tags I check every once in a while seem to be empty. It is annoying to know that posts that you make will become hidden and/or removed later on as time goes on from search/tags
You can see hear that the last two blog posts are somewhat transparent here, and I have seen this on blog posts in the NSFW tag a few years ago, and I guess this means the blog post is marked to be removed/hidden? No clue for the https://wordpress.com/tag/steven-universe
And for a tag, I blog about a few years back. I know I am not crazy. Sonic Mania tag. I made some posts talking about this game and even reviews, and when I go look, the blog post in this tag is less than normal. https://wordpress.com/tag/sonic-mania
The same thing here can be seen, and I don’t know what is going on, and at this point, it makes me wonder, what is the point of following a tag limit rule when your blog posts are going to end up being wiped from the tags. It is an annoying feeling and this was the same issue I had with Tumblr, and the worst part is. Tumblr fixed that issue. I don’t know what is going on with WordPress
And the last tag is of a game I played, and it had another blogger in that tag. Here is the tag, if you were wondering. https://wordpress.com/tag/hyperdimension-neptunia-rebirth-1
And It is hard to say but what if it is not blog posts being hidden or wiped from tags, but rather accounts being marked to be hidden in tags. Most, if not all my old blog posts are hidden or wiped from some tags, and I’m lucky that my blog posts (some that show up) can be seen.
And yeah, I know the main way you want your blog to be seen or get views is through google or word of mouth. Having people on the same platform helps too, because if they like it, they will mention it or link back to you, and that is great.
Like I said before, this is the same issue I had with Tumblr, and in fact, I will link that post below. All the issues I had with Tumblr back then somewhat apply here to my WordPress issues.
And here I was, thinking I was blogging right and using 7 tags or less to avoid getting removed from search and tag but WordPress was slowly doing that anyway, so it didn’t matter, huh?
My new blog posts stay up but for how long? It is just annoying to see all you made be wiped clean, and it is out of my control, and I can’t do much to change that. I don’t know what’s going on with WordPress but it is bugging me.
