Answer to your question

What are labels

Labels are same as categories on Wordpress. They are mainly used to categorize your posts and to differentiate posts from each other. Consider labels as topics and if you're going to make a blog on two topics then labels play a major role to help you achieve your goal. Labels give your visitors an option to choose whatever they're looking for.

Why I need labels in my post

To understand why you need labels let us take an example:-

Suppose you've a blog on cars and you post everything about cars but now you're thinking to post on bikes too. Now without labels you can not categorize your posts. But when you use labels you give a label like car garage to car posts and bike center for bike posts. This way you can categorize your blog posts.

Now both of the labels will be shown on your homepage when you use 'Labels' gadget. Whenever your visitor clicks on 'Car garage' they will see all the posts labelled with car garage and no post will be there of 'Bike center'

Same is going to happen when your visitor clicks 'Bike center' they will see all the posts with bike center label.

So labels are very important to your blog.
