As an example, if you are in a fashion or clothing business, you might have cat prints and could make a tag for cat accordingly. Doing this will enable your customers who are interested in cats to quickly find all the relevant t-shirts, hoodies, and pants with cat prints.
Tags can be managed by navigating to the Products » Tags screen and similar to tags on your posts, you can add, delete, and edit product tags as well.
Login to the your WordPress Dashboard.
Click the Products tab.
Click the Tags sub-tab.
Enter a Name.
Optionally, enter a Slug. This is the URL-friendly version of the name.
Optionally, enter a Description.
Click Add new tag button to save your new tag.
This table lists all of your product tags by row. Tags are displayed alphabetically by tag name.
The table of product tags contains the following columns:
[ ] — A checkbox that when clicked (checked), selects that particular tag to be deleted with a bulk action.
Name — The name of the tag.
Description – Tags may have an optional description.
Slug — The slug of a tag. Usually in lower case letters.
Count — The number of products which are members of the tag.
Above the table, to the right, is a search box where you can enter a word, or series of words, and click the Search tags button to search and display all the Tags meeting your search words.
The following fields can be modified via the Quick Edit section:
Tag name — To reiterate, the tag name must be unique.
Tag slug — Again, the tag slug also must be unique.
The Screen Options allow you to choose which columns are displayed, or not displayed, in the underlying Table. Clicking on the screen options tab will show a list of columns with a check-box next to each column.
Also, the number of tags to display in the Table of Tags can be set and modified from here.
While adding a new product via Products » Add Product, you can select one or multiple product tags from the list.
