Disinclude Tag Pages on Blogs and Get More SEO Traffic

A few days ago, I blocked the tag pages on my music blog from search engines. Why? Each of the tag pages was recording 80+ internal inbound links as opposed to my individual stories that were getting 1-2 inbound links. The tag pages are very dry, so I wanted more SEO traffic to individual stories. Each post on my blog includes streaming music or a music video, so they should generate more repeat and return usage.

I'm already getting direct SEO traffic to my stories now.

Why were tag pages not getting traffic? My guess is that they were very broad. Most of my search traffic comes from people searching for specific songs.
