As well as tagging our blog posts with relevant words according to what we are writing about, we are also using specific tags that will be propagated in places that are either relative to Birmingham or social enterprises.  At the moment, as far as I am aware, we are just using these special tagging phrases so that we will be displayed on UpyerBrum.  UpyerBrum propagates tags that either use birminghamuk or upyerbrum.  The birminghamuk tag gets placed in the Items tagged from around the web: category.  Users of upyerBrum may then decide to vote for it to be a top story.  Whereas upyerbrum gets placed in the Popular stories voted for by you: category automatically, bypassing the voting stage.  Relevant, and we hope, enciteful posts that we feel are news worthy will be added to the latter.  We will reserve birminghamuk tags for posts which, like this post, are just mentioning a method of social media application or that is less news worthy.

If you know of any other tagging conventions that we should be using to target particular websites please leave your comments below.
