Google tagging

October 12th, 2005

Google has added a capability to tag bookmarked sites (link, link). The tags aren’t public so this doesn’t support social tagging. Yet.

“To bookmark a page, just visit it through Google Search, get to it in your Search History, and click the star icon. Then click “editâ€? and type in any tags under the “Labelsâ€? heading. You can even add some notes in the box underneath that.

Once you’ve saved a bunch of sites, you can view them by clicking the Bookmarks heading in the left sidebar. You can show multiple tags at once by clicking all of their check boxes.” (link)

The interface seems clumsy and the private-only tags are not very useful, but this will no doubt grow into something significant.
