Tagging – the new way to advertise?

Tagging has become the new way to categorize, label and find things on the internet. A technique that has been booming, especially in the blogging world, with large sites like Flickr and Technorati promoting the use of tags. A tag is like a keyword that relates to a site that when clicked on, takes you to the site lniked to the tag.

Born around the hype of the Million Dollar Home Page that I posted a previous article on. “1000 Tags is a project that aims to put to the test in its simplest form the viability of tagging as a way to advertise, by presenting a tag cloud formed by tags added by people who try to promote a particular site or page.”

Does it work? Well I’m going to give it a bash and see what happens to my traffic.
