Benefit 3: Enhancing Findability

Tagging can make information easier to find. In social bookmarking systems, for example, tags provide supplemental navigation for users. Each tag is another possible doorway to a resource or a jumping-off point to find related tags.

In some cases, tags can even improve searches. Yahoo’s MyWeb 2.0, a social bookmarking tool similar to del.icio.us, leverages people’s tags to provide them with more relevant search results.
