If I do any of the three above (forum, project, blog)... what is the purpose of inputting in the tags/keywords box? Does it only pertain to the “search” function?

It is to help with the search function,
if you made a “bed side table” with “Pocket screws” from “2×4’s” and posted the project here. If you would use the tags ” furniture, night stand, 2×4, Kreg, pocket hole” when I did a search for 2×4 nightstand it would show in the results higher.

did that make sense?

It’s just a way to expand the search beyond just the words in your title.
