What should I put for tags? you may ask, well you will want to use keywords that work best with your article, so if yours is about dog breeds, use: dog, poodle, bull dog.
A great tip on how to get keywords that will rank high and fast is to put a few of your search terms into the Google keyword analyzer and let it find synonyms for you. After this you may want to sort by advertiser competition (if you have contextual ads) or search volume (if your purely trying to drive traffic).
