Why and How to Use Labels ?
As the number of posts grow it is very difficult to show them up on your main blog page because your blog becomes to bulky to be opened up by a browser, so here comes the labels. They allow you to put different posts under different categories with specific words you choose. So whenever a person searches for any keyword on your blog then the posts with the same labels or keywords are showed up in the search results. This lets the viewers surf your blog in a very easy manner. For example the person search for posts related to Apple on your blog then all the posts with label apple are shown in the results.
