Linking note tags

Recommended Posts

A fundamental methodology for refining one's search results within a taxonomy-based database (or Content Management System such as Evernote) is to inductively link a particular term or tag to its other occurrences within that realm.

This process allows the user to gain a better sense of context for the term/tag.

How hard would it be to render tags as linked hypertext?

I'm not clear about "other occurences with that realm"

Are you suggesting the database include a url field for tags?
Currently the fields stored are Id, Name, Parent

You can create a master note for the tag.  
It can contain whatever additional information you need; hyperlinks ...

?? inductively? realm? Sorry, a little too jargony for me here.

Tags implicitly link link notes together by their presence (or absence). Since tags refer to individual notes, not locations inside a note, they'd make poor candidates, they'd make poor candidates for a linked hypertext system. In fact, Evernote has no such facilities like note anchors currently.

If you used tags as a basis for hypertext linking, how would that work? Embed the tag in the note text, click on it -- what happens? Does it perform a filtering on that tag?

In any version of the app its possible to search on tags (tag:keyword) to see a listing of all notes with that tag,  and the desktops have Views that include a tag column so notes can be sorted into tag order (which admittedly gets complicated for multiply-tagged notes,  but it can be done.)

Perhaps if you could outline your intentions for this feature we could comment more helpfully?
