    If I tag an item as "mytag" and put it on a page should the search then find it if I search for mytag?

    I am a bit unsure of what tagging is used for.

    Hello Alex,

    No, you cannot search by tags.
    Tag clouds are commonly used in websites that support tagging. Tagging is a technique of assigning a set of string values to a particular item - such as classifying a picture of your pet dog at a photo sharing website with string tags like "dog", "pet" and so on. Tags provide an informal way for users to easily classify content and make it easy to visualize the most common tags and to drill down into a specific tag.

    Here is a reference to an article that discusses using tag clouds.

    Hope this is helpful for you.
