Disallowing Tags Page - Still get SEO Benefits?

    If we "disallow" tags in our robots.txt .... that tells google not to index the specific tags page at /tags/


    What im not clear on, is whether the tags people type, are helping my site just as much pertaining to SEO. This is a complicated question because technically the only thing omitted is the indexing of that one page, right?

    So any tags appearing on specific threads, should still perform their purpose for SEO benefits, correct? Its a keyword in the form of a link, on a thread page that contains chatter about that same topic.

    So therefore even if you disallow tags page indexing, the tags being used on your site are still benefiting you JUST as much SEO-wise?

    Careful in responding! This question has much nuance to it! :-D
