I am displaying it on the main page only. And one more question. Does the widget automatically generates the tag cloud for the related page ? Or for the whole site ? I meant that, do all of the pages tag clouds the same or differs ? And could you please recommend me a Tag Cloud generator widget ?

Depending on which plugin you are using you will get different results. Some of the widgets out there support to specify which post or pages you want to take into consideration and generate the tags from there. Some will just pick up whatever is on the page, and some will pick up, whatever you have specified on the given post for tags.

Yes the plugins will generate automatically tag clouds for related pages, but I’ve seen no use to this whole concept. I’ve used “Better Tag Cloud” and “Jquery Tag Cloud”. I’d avoid Tag generators with flash, despite the fact that they look better, due to SEO reasons.

However there are many other Tag plugins in the wordpress directory. I’d recommend just trying a few and see which meet your standards.

From what I remember, you place it in the Widget section via the Wigets menu in WordPress. I believe once you’ve dragged it to the sidebar it will show everywhere, which seems like the best option.

If I was to choose a plugin now it will be “Ultimate Tag Cloud Widget”. The ones I’ve used before seems outdated, and this one was updated some 33 days ago. Here’s what it offers as features:

  • Multiple instances
  • Choose which authors tags should be shown
  • Ordering of the tags
  • Exclude tags you don’t want to show
  • Include only the tags that you want to show
  • Minimum amount of posts for tags to be included
  • Number of days back to search for posts
  • Title
  • Size and color customization
  • Max amount of tags in your cloud
  • Spacing between tags, letters, words and rows
  • Transform tags into lowercase, uppercase or Capitalize them
  • Can also show categories
  • Fully internationalized and translated into two languages
  • Separator, suffix and prefix for the tags

I believe this is all you need. Give it a try https://0x539.se/wordpress/ultimate-tag-cloud-widget/ here as some pics on what it looks like. I believe it’s the thing you want. Hope this helps.

I’d suggest checking out this article on tag clouds. It’s really informative:

But the thing that i do not unserstand is “making all of the tag clouds different for all pages. Not duplicated. I have selected “posts” as a source to generate tag clouds. But it suggests using posts or pages. What do you think ?

Personally I’m not a fan of tag clouds. I should probably read up on reasons why they help though. I’m just not a fan of them in general.

I agree, not fan either. @casinorecommender if you however have decided to use them go ahead.

Yup, agree as well – not a fan of tag clouds and how they look on websites. Clutter for the sake of a few extra SEO points probably not worth it…

But I could be wrong.
