Comments: Tagging by Bloggers, a Small Study

Tagging is a difficult issue to deal with. I wish I could have gone to tag camp, but we really need to get togerher and have an open standard specifically just for tags. I think it should be added to the RSS Specification as RSS 2.1 or something.

Tagging is definitely a difficult "feature" to get right. Flickr and del.icio.us have certainly done a wonderful job of creating models of successful tagging services while others haven't been nearly so well executed. So what's the solution here? Maybe a tagging service that also has plugins into the leading blogging platforms?

In general I can surf del.icio.us tags for hours, can't say the same for any blog tagging service...

Wordpress has a neat plu-ing for implementing tags in your weblog: http://vapourtrails.ca/wp-plugins. A nice side-effect is that the tags are put into your Atom feed and Technorati feeds them.
