Google adds tagging Monday, 11 June 2007 1:00 pm

Posted by Dongmei in tagging, Web 2.0, What's new at Google?!.

Google has added a Bookmarks feature to My Search History, enabling you to quickly tag and comment any web page you’ve visited.

To bookmark a page, just visit it through Google Search, get to it in your Search History, and click the star icon.  Then click “edit” and type in any tags under the “Labels” 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. You can also view your tag “homepage” on your Google Personalized homepage.

You can bookmark pages easily by drag this bookmarklet to the Links area of your browser: Google Bookmark.

Imagine Google in the future opens this up, letting users share their bookmarks and see bookmarking data in searches, we could see something very useful and popular (social bookmarking + Google search= ?).
