Tagging plays an important part in the IT Knowledge Exchange community. When asking questions members are asked to add tags to their questions so they can appear in the related areas of the site with other questions on the same topics. This allows users browsing the site to simply click on a tag and see all content that has that tag.

Tags can best be described as 1 or 2 keyword descriptors that best reflect the topic or topics of the question you are asking. Keep in mind you should add as many tags as you feel are needed for your question(We suggest 3 tags). The better you tag the question the easier it is for people to find and the sooner it may get answered.

To help with your tag selection we have pre populated the auto suggest feature with over 8,000 tags. So when you begin typing in your tag you will notice that suggestions will appear below the text box. You can either continue typing what you want or choose one that is being suggested.

Most importantly you tag you content what you want to be tagged with.

 Keep tagging!
