How to add an article to a category

Wikipedia has index systems called Categories, in which links to articles are provided based on category tags included in each article.

To add an article to a particular category, add [[Category:Category name]] to the article's text (preferably at the bottom). The assigned category should now show up at the bottom of the article, and a link to the page should show up on the indicated category page in Wikipedia's category system.
