Technorati Tags


I have just started playing with Technorati Tags, since ecto has built in support for them.  I can see two uses for tags that are not currently handled by the categories:


  1. Allow you to catagorize your posts more specifylcy

  2. Creates a link to other posts on the same topic


Ecto's implementation adds a link to the bottom of the post with links to the Technotati Tags page.




I am wondering if it would be better to have the server software generate these tags.  That way it could appear at the bottom of the excerpt or at the bottom of the full post when it is displayed.


The one problem with this is that there is no standard way to specify those tags, especially when using an xmlrpc interface.
