TagFetch Search Engine for Web 2.0 Tags

Came across TagFetch today via Micropersuasion. Seems a useful idea to have a tag aggregator (taggregator?). Since creating various versions of TagMan (a hangman game for web 2.0 tags), I often find myself looking at the same tag across various sites. Here are the versions you can play: Technorati, Flickr, del.icio.us, Squidoo. I think TagFetch should include Squidoo tags. TagFetch reminds me of a web2.0 ajax start page like Netvibes or Pageflakes but is more specialized since it focuses on tags. It's a bit of a cross between a search engine and a personalized ajax start page. The only other tag-based search engine I can think of is DumbFind but there must be others.

Looks like they're using Google AdSense for revenue. Notice the Google Ads box when you do a search. If the site gains traction, I wonder if it would be worth their while to sell their own ads per tag. I'm sure they're tracking tag searches. They could sell the high volume tags and backfill with Google ads. Incidentally, I'm continuing my tagvertising experiment and am testing running my own ads on my search marketing blog.

No, I haven't heard of keotag. I like your tag generator tool. For your tag search, why not include Flickr and Squidoo tags in the meta results?
