this is perfect. this simply and directly addresses a lot of the frustrations I have with tag use and discoverability

Thanks. We've been collecting tag pairs quite some time now, but not really using the data.

I think it might be nice if a right-click could open the tag page in a new tab. I will probably play around with that. There might be other places on the site where it might be useful too.

is your pairs ranking continually updated? it might be good to have either a rolling window or some kind of hotness score so that new tags can gain traction

mk  ·  1309 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Yes, they are. That's a good point. A rolling window is probably the easiest approach with our current implementation.

maybe even forego ranking altogether and just toss out the last nine or so paired tags

Currently, 'co-tags' are just gathered in a stream. i.e. the #space co-tag stream might be:

  #mars #astronomy #mars #robots #gravity #astrobiology #iss #mars #carlsagan...
where #mars is the most recent and the most popular. If we pull from a limited set of co-tags, say the first 50, then it would be pretty easy for new tags to make their way into the mix.

Sweet! Forward thinking. Love this, from someone who can't code.
