B. Product tags guidelines

Characters Use only ordinary letters, numbers, and the hyphen (-) in your tags. Avoid accented characters and other symbols. Tags are not case-sensitive (uppercase and lowercase letters are treated as equivalent). Other special characters will be considered equivalent to the dash (-). Example: Suppose you have a condition for an automated collection of Product tag is equal to red-new. All products that have the following tags are also included in the collection: red_new, red+new, red&new.

Length For ease of use, keep your tags short. For example, depending on the number and variety of products that you sell, you might be able to use tags that are all no more than 16 characters.

Simple and understandable Name your tags in a way that makes sense to you and your staff so that each tag has a clear purpose and is easy to remember.

Product tags aren't meant for search engines, so don't use tags to improve search results for your online store.
