Notes on Post Tags Search

This is a search for tags/categories assigned to blog posts by their authors. The terminology used for post tags varies across different blog platforms; for example, WordPress tags and categories, Blogspot labels, and Tumblr tags are all included. However, blog.com (blog.co.uk, blog.de etc) tags are not included, because they don't appear in the blogs' RSS feeds.

It does not search post content, and it will not find any informal keywords/hashtags within the body of posts. The category 'uncategorized' is excluded from search results and it should always be borne in mind that not all bloggers use categories/tags.
