    I have a blog with categories in wordpress.

    wordpress allows to add a description to the categories. does it help SEO if I add a description?

    A page is a page, whether it is a category page or not, the page needs a meta description. Some folks let Google decide on what it should be. Some write their own descriptions.

    My advice, if you can construct a proper one, that does the job, Yes, it will help people make the decision to click the search results listing and visit your page. If not then Google will decide for you and create one anyway and it may not be optimal in all cases.

    Hope this helps you.
