Tag Miner (Automatic Tag Extraction)


Tag Miner automatically finds the most relevant topics in your blog posts, and adds them as tags. This saves you the hassle of worrying about meta-data, and frees you up to focus on what is most important: your writing. Choose to consider all possible tags equally, or to give precedence to the names of people, places and things. Filter out acronyms, name fragments, titles, dates and pronouns. Add tags to all your existing posts with a single click. Create your own custom blacklists and whitelists.
The following languages are currently supported:

  • English
  • German
  • Afrikaans

Not a free plugin

This is not free.

You are required to register at www.textcavate.com. They have several plans to choose from starting at $.99 a month. The next plan up is $19.99 a month. I was looking for a free alternative to premium plugins that already do what this one does. This isn’t that option, and Text Cavate has had several issues registering my free account before I knew they were a paid service.

The technical issues with Text Cavate, and the lack of transparency about this being a paid plugin gives me pause in dealing with them.

not so free

it’s free to register for an account but you have to pay to get the tags, why don’t you say that upfront instead of wasting my time installing the plugin and registering, seriously!!! i have better things to do
