When Web 2.0 Tags Beat Search Keywords
Consider a TagSummary for these event-related tags: codemash, romecamp, lotusphere, lotusphere2007, dld, dld07, blogparteeh07. It's useful to follow an event across multiple web 2.0 sites - blogs on Technorati, photos on Flickr, etc. Doing a keyword search on Google for dld is, for obvious reasons, not going to be too helpful in tracking the DLD Conference event.
Following an event via tags works best when a single tag or a core set of tags are agreed upon prior to the event. For instance, I notice on the DLD Conference site this message: "If you are blogging or uploading images to your favorite photo sharing site, please consider using the following tag in your posts: DLD07"
Are there other cases where tag searches are more useful than keyword searches? BTW, if you want to tag your blog posts, try the free TagBuildr tool. ;-)
