What is a tag?
Tag is a hyperlinked word. The link displays a list of articles containing that word.


  • Let us say you are reading a blog post.
  • At the top or bottom of the post a set of words are displayed as tags.
  • When you click on a tag, it takes you to a page that displays a list of all posts that contain that word.
  • Tagging is a kind of indexing scheme for the web.
  • The index is based on keywords, just as in a printed book.
