recommended tags

    I am finding that the recommended tags are virtually useless.

    I, of course, have no idea how Diigo comes up with the recommended tags, but I have found they are almost always completely irrelevant.

    would it be possible to change the system, so that the words of the title of the webpage are used to generate the tags, while also leaving out articles (a, the), prepositions (in at...etc), and conjunctions (of, but, etc). In other words, the diigo recommended tags should just be the nouns and verbs of the web page title.

    I know this is not perfect, but I think it would be a pretty good start to a much more intuitive recommended tag system.

    Of course, this is all in addition to tags that the Diigo community has already added. In my case, this is rarely an option as most of the stuff I bookmark is a first time for diigo.

    Thanks for you suggestion. The current tag recommendation system includes some key words from the title, supplemented by other user input. We realize the result may not be perfect some times. We will improve it further.
