Establishing interesting and useful relationships within the content on a website is a powerful method of retaining visitors and bringing them back. The Tag add-on is an intuitive relationship tool. It lets you freely apply relevant tags to content on your site. You can then display in your templates the relationships that emerge within this data to improve your visitors’ experience. Relationships develop over time, naturally, intuitively. Tag brings this natural progression to your website.

Tag allows your users to view lists of entries that contain specific tag(s), or while viewing a specific entry, see other entries that are related by use of the same tag(s). These related entries can be ranked by most tag matches. Users can also subscribe to tags and view lists of entries that contain the tag(s) they’ve subscribed to. You can also display a list or a weighted “cloud” of tags that exist for your site.

Tags can be created/selected in the Publish page of the CP while creating or editing an entry. They can also be added to entries via SAEF (SafeCracker in EE2), or seperately through the Tag form template tag. You can have as many Tag fields (and groups) as you wish, as it is a field type in EE2.

If you already have a tagging system where tags are placed into a custom field, or if you’ve manipulated the Tag “feel” by assigning your entries to EE categories, Tag can easily transition your website. Using the built in Harvesting utility, you can easily harvest this data, and it will automatically convert all into Tag tags and apply them to your entries.

I’ve tried all tagging modules available for EE, and I keep returning to Tag if I can put it in the client’s budget. It’s the smoothest interface of all of them (ie. looks/feels like a native EE fields). I once made a large site where I practically built the nav around powerful Tag template tags.

It gives a new perspective once it starts relating contents + tags. I’m wondering it it’s true that tagging affects SEO, if it does, too bad ‘cause it improves usability so much!

Tag by Solspace is a well thought out, easy to use, and feature packed module. I directly compared this to Tagger and I have to say Solspace’s latest version of Tag is hands down the best module for the job when it comes to tagging EE2 entries. I’ll be using it exclusively from here on out.

Why this isn’t built into the CMS is beyond me, but Solspace has done a great job making it worth paying extra for, especially with the tag suggestion feature.  Clients love it, and it’s easy to implement.
