Taxonomy Terms are the terms by which you can categorize content on your website. Once a taxonomy term (category) is created, content can be tagged by it. This enables content to be grouped and listed based on the taxonomy terms (category). By default, categories can be created for the following content types  - Pages, Person, Events, News.
