HubSpot's blog tool makes it easy to manage your posts by subject with tags. Tags are added in the Settings tab of any blog post you create in HubSpot. You can also customize your templates to link to a feed of all posts by tag, or add a post filter module so visitors can filter posts by tag.

Blog tags dashboard

Your blog tags dashboard shows you what tags you have, how many times they've been used, and how many published posts have been tagged. You can create, edit, delete, and combine tags here. You can also create tags or add tags to your blog posts in the blog post editor.

Navigate to the blog tags dashboard 

  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to Marketing > Website > Blog.

  • On the left sidebar menu, click Tags.
