Categories and Tags

In WordPress, I can put my posts in categories (which is what I do) or I can type some tags for each post. What’s the difference? At first glance, the tags seem like more fine grained identification of the content. But when you start typing a tag, it suggests your old tags. So they want you to reuse them. But then they’re more like categories, no?

And with all of this, does it really matter? Search engines are pretty good. Why tag or categorize when I can just search for what I want, ya know? Blah!!!!
