Tagging? how important is it?

At the end of discussions it asks you for tag words.Well after you have responded i mean, is it imortant?, do you really need to or is it ok to skip?. Also you usually have to after your own discussion, do you need to?

Here is what myLot tell us about tagging: http://www.mylot.com/o/faq/faq9.aspx I add that if you tag correctly your discussion will appear over there in the 'similar topics' causing it to receive more activity --- Keep with popular tags that are relative to the topic (and no usernames )

I know that you know better than to stalk. We go to the same places so we will always be bumping into each other

jasper great responses by many of the members, after reviewing them all I just wanted to add that another reason for tagging is that it will avoid duplicate and or similar discussions. Many members search the toolbar and say it does not function as their discussion was deleted, but they did a search and there were no similar and or duplicate discussions. What they do not realize is that when members do not tag, the search bar cannot find. hehehe.. pretty simple.

Tagging is important. This can also serve you as your tracking word to those you have responded and at the same time you can use that word thru mylot search for your reference.

It is not necessary to tag your discussion or responses. However, tagging helps people find your discussion or your responses easily. When a member searched for a discussion with some keywords, the search engine will search the tags and bring up the discussions which has the keywords tagged to them.

You know previouly I encountered here that they want to request admind to remove the tagging even though they know the importance of tagging. Some says waste of time, some are says not necessary but if you realized it is important for indexing and as other mylotter says if good tagging your topic will be active. However there is an option there to skip tagging if you don't want, since then I never skip to put tag... see you around

Hi jasper: I think it's a good habitude to put some tags to your discussion. This makes easy for the other users to search for them and also, people that have responded to similar discussions will find your discussion easier. ALVARO
