In the past we have shown you how to automatically convert keywords into links to increase your profits and save time. Wouldn’t it be easier, if we can automate yet another thing in our blog to save more time? Well, recently one of our users, Devtard, notified us of his new free plugin called Automatic Post Tagger. It allows you to automatically tag your WordPress posts with pre-defined tags. Let’s take a look at how it works.
How it Works
All you have to do is create a list of tags with related words for each of them. Once you do that, then this plugin will automatically add tags to posts according to the keywords found in the title, content, and excerpt. For example, you can add the tag “cat” to a post if the following keywords are found: cats, kitty, meow, etc.
You can also set a maximum number of tags per post. This plugin has the ability to bulk tag your existing posts. Last but not least, you can easily import or export your tags list. Hopefully as this plugin grows, other folks will openly share their tag keyword database allowing new bloggers to take advantage of it. Overall, it is a very neat solution for bloggers who want to save some time.

First thing you need to do is install and activate Automatic Post Tagger plugin. Upon activation, you will see a new item under your Settings menu called Automatic Post Tagger.
Most of the configuration settings are pretty self explanatory. We suggest you leave the default settings as-is because they look pretty good.
You can add tag name and keywords from either the settings page, or you can add it from your posts write panel.
