What is a Tag Cloud? Allow me to explain.

A tag cloud is very simple to explain. It is a visual text representation of user related tags.


Example: When you upload a photo, you are prompted to assign each photo a tag, or rather a SPECIFIC DESCRIPTION of the photo.


A visual cloud aggregates all the tags in a particular site and displays them visually (much like the shape of a cloud).


This image helps us see more easily if our tags are general or specific (this is what we want, to be specific). In our case, sadly the Jury is in and it doesn't look good.


iantiqueonline.com's tags...are well, way too general.


**Think of how much more critical this is if you are looking to sell, find information, share information, buy...


Current tag cloud I created using Wordle:

In summary, lets imagine the opposite scenario; if you are trying to find a doll you had when you were little. If you Google DOLL, 1985, Blinking Eyes, Blue eyes, Red Dress with Pom Poms, the "net" you cast would ONLY be as successful as the zillions of taggers out there.


If you are lucky, someone tagged properly and you will be reunited with your treasured memories, if not she will be lost, floating around with no tag or just the tag 'OLD DOLL'. BE SPECIFIC with tags, for your sake and the sake of those searching. I encourage everyone to go back and re-think their current tags.
