WordPress Categories are meant for broad grouping of your posts (entries, articles). Think of these as general topics or the table of contents for your website. Categories are there to help identify what your website (or blog) is really about. It is meant to help website visitors find the right type of content on your site. Categories are hierarchical, so you can have sub-categories.WordPress Tags are meant to describe specific details of your posts. Think of these as your website’s key words. They are like micro-data that can be used to micro-categorize your content. Tags are not hierarchical.
