Tags are a type of taxonomy or organizational tool you can add to any post that you want and they also communicate with other websites, to add post tags enter the tags inside the box and separate them with comma then click on add tags.

If you add a post tag to a post information about that post will be passed on to Google and other sites that track tags so that if someone searches for the word that you use as a tag will most likely to find your post

Under the editor area you have a box called excerpt.

Excerpt Box

Excerpt gives you the option of writing a small version of the post or a small description of the post
Description will then appear for instance in the RSS feed for your blog

The RSS feed is a feed that pushes all that information from your blog to people who don't actually visit your blog but rather readers through their email or through an RSS reader. That means for people who only see the text version of your site they’ll now see that short description with a link to the full post.

Below excerpt you will find send Trackbacks

Send Trackbacks literally sends a message to a blog or a website that you link to within your article link to it so they know about it and there is a link back to you
