Collaborative tagging in online news leveraging
‘Collaborative tagging’ is a new and innovative logic by which we can spread news among multiple people through various social networking and web mediums and once the news is reached among users, we will make the visitors glue to our posts/news by frequently updating the news/posts through what is called as ‘feeds’. This method of feeding is known as ‘link bait’. Through such posts, users get an opportunity to post comments or air their views (both positive and negative) which would in turn help in popularizing.
Once a user puts his/her comment/opinion on a particular, he would be further notified whenever another person comments on the same post and this method is known as ‘link juice’.
‘Link Condom’ gives the quantity of link juice or magnitude of popularization.
All the above mentioned tactics sets the foundation for collaborative tagging. There are two types of collaborative tagging Passive and Active.
Same news promoted through different blogs, groups, social networking websites is called as Active tagging and the likes, shares etc received for a particular post is known as passive tagging. Such type of Active and Passive collaborative tagging will give more popularity to news in search engines and social networking mediums and will also appear as the most popular news in various search engines.
