Fed up with sifting through pages and pages of irrelevant search engine results to find what they want, web users have switched to tagging as a viable, time-saving alternative to researching for distinct information.

Tagging is basically assigning keywords or tags to webcontent such as photos, web pages or blog posts. When aweb user talks about tagging, he is simply referring to how he summarizes what his web page, picture or blog is all about.

If a web page operator made a web page for an in-demand tag that everybody is searching for, he will definitely gethighly targetted traffic. Other users who found the content of the web page of good quality will bookmark the page making it rise in popularity. As it becomes more popular, more and more users will bookmark it paving the way for more traffic. By tagging content, it gets to be evaluated byusers who decide if the content is useful. If it is useful, freetraffic will follow. Another thing with tagging is that a webowner can select several tags for each page in his site. This means a chance to rank high for many tags in the highly- trafficked bookmarking sites that use tags to organize information.
