Establishing interesting and useful relationships within the content on a website is a powerful method of retaining visitors and bringing them back. The Solspace Tag add-on is an intuitive relationship tool. It lets you freely apply relevant tags to entries on your site. You can then display in your templates the relationships that emerge within this data to improve your visitors' experience. Relationships develop over time, naturally, intuitively. Tag brings this natural progression to your website.
Tag also allows your users to view lists of entries that contain specific tag(s), or while viewing a specific entry, see other entries that are related by use of the same tag(s). These related entries can be ranked by most tag matches. You can also display a list or a weighted "cloud" of tags that exist for your site.
Tags can be created/selected in the Publish page of the control panel while creating or editing an entry. They can also be added to entries via Channel Form. Since it's a field type, you can have as many Tag fields (and groups) as you wish.
Tag 5.0.5 only works on ExpressionEngine 3.4+, but includes a copy of Tag 4.2.9, which is compatible with ExpressionEngine 2.11.x. If you're still using ExpressionEngine 2.x, you can use the EE2 compatible version until you're ready to upgrade your site to ExpressionEngine 3.x.
The latest version of Tag is 5.0.5. The chart below shows the current technical requirements and compatibility for the latest version of Tag.
Tag currently only supports the latest version of ExpressionEngine plus 1 point version back. The red, vertical dashed line represents the cut-off for EE versions we support. EE versions to the right of that line are no longer supported by us with our add-ons. The icon represents an update specifically for compatibility with that EE version. Please upgrade to this add-on version before upgrading to that version of ExpressionEngine.
Date formats below are: M/D/YYYY. As always, we recommend that you always use the latest versions of our add-ons. However, this chart may answer some of your questions about upgrading the Solspace Tag add-on and ExpressionEngine, and reduce the risk of incompatibility. This chart also serves as a guide to see when support for the latest version of ExpressionEngine becomes available.

Using this module for related posts allows the entries to dynamically update the more you add to your site, using an algorithm that matches up tags. It has increased click-through rates on my blogs, and cross-promotion of content. Highly recommended.
Tag is a great addition to our already excellent arsenal of ExpressionEngine addons and one of the many “must-installs” for any site that requires cross-promoting entries. The documentation is well written and extremely easy to install and train users on.
Where EE's native categories are clunky and hard to get right, Tag is easy to use, flexible and precise. I use it for all the normal reasons and it does the job.
@jesseknowles Solspace Tag is one of the most powerful add-ons we've used. Great template tag logic and admin tools. A+
If you're upgrading from Tag 4.x on ExpressionEngine 2.x, it's recommended that you upload the new Tag files to your new ExpressionEngine 3.x site directory just before running the EE2 -> EE3 upgrade. Proceed with the following instructions...
