Is there anyone willing to provide a comprehensive view on how they implement the Zettelkasten methodology in Evernote?

My understanding of the Zettelkasten methodology is

  1. Individual Notes
    1. each having a unique note-id
    2. identify note source
    3. identify note hierarchy;  optional for note sets
  2. Tags to identify the note topic(s)
  3. Links between notes
  4. Tag Index to find notes related to a topic


Notes are the basic element of Evernote   
I'm easy on the note content, however true Zettelkasten restricts the note to a single thought   
A template can be used


I use the generated Evernote note-id; (it's integral to the note link feature)
It's hidden metadata, but I append a copy to the note contents
example: 70b889b9-63fc-479f-ab98-5dd75e6bc2ed

There is a metadata field to identify the note source   
For note hierarchy, I include a table-of-contents section in the note


I use the Evernote tag feature   1736852973_ScreenShot2020-07-11at6_55_24AM.png.12837fac99adf7167717e86c7b9327eb.png
True Zettelkasten is restrictive on tags as described here   
(I still don't understand good/bad tags)
I avoid "orphan tags"; my tag-naming reflects tag hierarchy
example: Budget, Budget-Food, Budget-Housing, ...

 

I use the Evernote note link feature1196447868_ScreenShot2020-07-11at6_55_40AM.png.b8930ea9f450184a786ba77dc29d0ddf.png
It's actually a url like
evernote:///view/1156250/s10/70b889b9-63fc-479f-ab98-5dd7...

 

To find Notes, Evernote has an extensive search feature
In addition to the tags assigned to the note
we can also use text search, dates, ....
