Tags on Youtube

Now that we are starting to move videos onto our official WordPress YouTube channel, how should we handle tags? Tags in YT have much more use as navigation that you see in a WordPress site typically, like WPTV.

Edit: Tags may have more use in YT than on WP

To keep this manageable for mods it would need to be a short list, but we do have a few “big buckets” that our videos fall into, such as:

  • Videos targeted at users
  • Vides targeted at core developers
  • Plugin development
  • Theme development
  • Content Marketing/SEO
  • Website Design

Those are a few off of the top of my head. What say you, if you could set a list of tags for this channel, how would you go about it? What kind of naming conventions would you use for consistency. I have no firm ideas here, so I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas in the comments. And to keep the list reasonable, try to limit yourself to 10 or less “big tags” we can use on YouTube.
