How to use the Tagfinder - for diary writers: the Tagfinder can help you find the most appropriate common tags for your diary. You may still need to use tags not classified in the Tagfinder. The first step is to find the category (or categories) that apply best to your diary, and then find the tags in that category that suit the diary. To avoid confusion between categories and tags, note that categories are headings while tags have a frequency attached showing how many diaries have used them. For example, Politics: Activism is a category and activism1070 indicates the tag activism is attached to more than a thousand diaries.
So far, more than 2500 of the most common tags are included. This is a large majority of the 2900+ tags that are used by 30 or more Daily Kos diaries. Some tags are given more than one classification. The tags which are used by 30+ diaries but are not yet classified can be found on the Special category page.
