    Do we need another type of search engine?
    Due to popularity of social bookmarking or tagging such as Technorati, Digg, Delicious and more, we can see a new type of search engine. Ok, maybe not but this is only my honest opinion. I will give it a name, maybe tagSE.

    Why must create search engine based on tags? The answer is faster indexing. Normal search engines need to crawl the whole page before it can put you in the list. You can set your Robot.txt not to accept crawler bots but that will hurt your visibility.

    Tagging is much simpler compared to normal search engine procedure. It solely based on short keyword instead of the whole page. This search engine can read from existing tags from Digg,Technorati and such and give it ranks. The popular the tags are, the higher the rank will be. Just like a normal search engines, it will display the most popular result on the top of the list.

    Yes i know, black hat SEO will be jumping around with joy if somebody made tag search engine. Spammer will write a new software to submit million of tags to get a higher pagerank not just from the tagSE but also from normal search engines. Spammers will sell their software to you and they will make more money and leaving you in the risk of getting a ban from search engines.

    Oh well, maybe i'll write my own tagSE if i only have enough time in my hands. At the moment, don't write your spamming software yet cowboy.
