I'm sort of known for being dubious about how tagging might help general searching. But I'm pretty positive about it as a way to help people collectively organize information around events. So without further adieu, I'd like to propose this common tag for those wishing to blog, bookmark or photo share stuff out of next week's monster Search Engine Strategies show in New York:
Also use that word for Technorati as a category for your blog posts. Don't categorize posts or can't use that word because it clashes with your own category system, as is the case with our blog? Then just add this link anywhere in your post:
More on tagging for Technorati is covered here. FYI, Technorati's not reading our posts correctly, so you won't see this or a few others tagged yet. They're aware of the problem and apparently working on it.
Want to find the forthcoming tagged SES NY 2006 content? Here's what we'll be adding to the bottom our own posts about the show next week:
Want more SES NY 2006 news? Technorati has blog reports here: sesny2006. See shared photos on Flickr here: sesny2006. See bookmarked pages on del.icio.us here: sesny2006. See saved pages on Yahoo My Web 2.0 here: sesny2006. Find live coverage and discussion at the Search Engine Watch Forums here: SEM Events.
Just click on any of those links, and you'll get the material listed. And if you like the idea, feel free to copy the links for your own blog or site.
