How tags work
In a kahoot's description, any text starting with the hashtag symbol (#) and ending with a space ( ) is considered a tag. When someone searches for a term, kahoots that include an identical tag will be listed higher than if the word simply exists (no # in front).
Note that if using a hashtag before a phrase, the phrase needs to include no spaces. For example, if the phrase is "first grade", the hashtag should be "#firstgrade". Typing "#first grade" will cause the hashtag system to think the tag is simply "#first".
How to add tags
When creating/editing the description of your kahoot, use hashtags within the description box.
