It is quite obvious that you will add at least one tag to the discussions that you start.. But do you add tags when you respond or comment in other's discussions?? I do only if something strikes me quick.. I often find them quite annoying.. How about you??

Tags are for people to find your discussion by searching it.. Your discussion will show up in the search results if the words they type match with the tags that the discussion has. So more tags you add, more people will see your discussion and so you will earn more

I seldom add tags when I respond or comment on a discussion.I find it's boring and waste of time. when I post a new discussion on my own.I will add a few tags on it.

When I start a discussion I used to add tags so it would be easy for me to find it the next time I want to check it. This is because I am thinking that after some time here at myLot I'm sure just like the others I would be able to post or start a lot of discussions. But in replying I just skip it, i dont find the need to add tags as well as when sending private messages to friends...

i have a few times but usually i only add tags to my discussions i started. To me if the person didn't add a tag to his or her own discussion then why should i? If i feel like the discussions is a very good discussion i will add tags so it will be seen more through different topics.

I usually add tags to my discussion. I also add tags to my response. I don't know whether it has any link on our earning but maybe there is some link between the star and tags and most of people i know in mylot use tags in both their discussion and responses.

I only use tags when I think they would add something to my response but not to everything I respond to. I also finding it most annoying and time consuming.

I usually don't add tags when I respond in other's discussion. I think it's too superfluous step.

I add tags to both the ones I start and to ones I reply to. I don't know if they help at all with earnings but figure it can't hurt. Tags or keywords though do help the search engines. They use them whenever you do a search but also when you go into a discussion if you look at the bottom you will see "similar" discussions. They put those there by using the tags others place. Since tags allow people to find the discussions and thus post more in a way it could generate more money for you.

I usually add as many tags as i can think of. Generally at least three or four. Usually no more than five or six. The only reason I add tags is because it makes more of a "complete member" thusly putitng the algorhythm more in my favour than out of it.

The purpose of tags is so that you and others can find a discussion again at some time in the future. If we do not properly tag our discussions, then when someone goes to start a new topic, and does the recommended search to make sure nobody else already wrote on that subject before, the earlier discussions will not come up and the new person will write again on something that has been done many times before. Please always use appropriate tags when you start a new discussion. That is just common courtesy. As for tags in our responses, that is a bit more difficult and yes the way it is handled here is annoying, but myLot is always working on improvements and perhaps they will make that part better.
