Hi, After finishing typing our discussions, the new screen opens and it asks for tag the discussion. I doesn't know the importance of it. How we need to tag our discussion or our response.

Tagging a discussion is more or less to make it easier for you to keep track of your discussions. I isn't required, we don't earn from it and you won't be punished or admonished for not doing it. I try to add at least a few tags to mine if I post in politics, as there are people who will use tagging to abuse mylot. I have seen people put insulting and inflamitory tags in other people's discusions just to stir up trouble. So when I post there, I try to fill up the tag part so no one else can abuse it.

If you could have observed there is a section called similar discussions in the right column whenever you open a discussion. Tagging your discussion plays an important role here. Your discussion gets linked with other discussions with the keywords you give in that tag box. Moreover, it is really helpful when anyone is search for discussions based ona certain keyword. The more the probablility of your discussion being surfaced on mylot homepages or discussion pages is, the more resposnes you would get and the more you would earn. Like, if your discussion gets listed in those similar discussion sections, more chances are that people might respond to it.
