    when using a certain set of words or names you can create a database/bank that will automatically create a page with related/similar articles.

    We have multiple articles on top riders that compete all over the world and would love if there were a link that says "view related articles" and it would basically be a mini search on just that rider.

    Also for sponsors if we can create wordbanks for when their name is mentioned in articles & posts/pages it would better help us promote them.

    Allow tags in blog posts to link to like posts with similar tags. (below post), Auto links of tagged words such as people, events etc in posts.

    Unfortunately we have to postpone this feature - too much other stuff on our 2010 roadmap - so I am moving this back to wishlist.

    I would love to have this option. As a golf professional, I would like to have a blog for each of my primary groups. For example, a blog for beginners, women, seniors, etc.. However, I also want a primary blog that shows all of my blog posts.

    The way you have the events set up right now would be perfect for what I'm thinking. I would write all my blog posts on one primary blog and using tags, the blog posts that are relevant to each group go to a blog area in each groups section - similar to how I have a gadget that shows only the tagged events I've chosen.

    Most blog software enables people to create tags for their posts. This allows a way to categorize blog posts, and also gives people to see posts on similar themes grouped together.

    As part of our top 50 goals for 2010, we are planning to add this feature to the blogs that you can create as part of Wild Apricot. We have some ideas on how to implement this, but we'd love to hear from you and how you would use tags on your blogs.

    Here is an example from my business blog on a blog post about floaters in real estate: The blond bombshell who love me...NOT! http://www.justnewlistings.com/arlington-virginia-blog/the-blond-bombshell-lawyer-who-loved-menot.html

    At the bottom of that post are the tags that readers can click on to get to similar posts
    Blog Tags
    * buyers (15) http://www.justnewlistings.com/arlington-virginia-blog/tags/buyers
    * floaters (3) http://www.justnewlistings.com/arlington-virginia-blog/tags/floaters
    * Selecting a Virginia Realtor (4) http://www.justnewlistings.com/arlington-virginia-blog/tags/selecting-a-virginia-realtor

    And if you google "floaters real estate" http://www.google.com/search?q=floaters real estate&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a you get that tagged page #1 in google. This can be big for your customers who need to rank for keywords and phrases in google--being able to have stragetic tags where all the blog posts on that page are about those keywords/tags.

    There is hardly a more important feature to add than tags to our blogs.
