Managing Smart Tags

You can curate Smart tags to remove any inaccurate tags that may have been assigned to your brand images so only the most relevant tags are displayed.

Moderating Smart tags also helps refine tag-based searches for images by ensuring that your image appears in search results for the most relevant tags. Essentially, it helps eliminate the chances of unrelated images from showing up in search results.

You can also assign a higher rank to a tag to increase its relevence with respect to an image. Promoting a tag for an image increases the chances of the image appearing in search results when a search is performed based on the particular tag.

  1. In the OmniSearch box, search for assets based on a tag.
  2. Inspect the search results to identify an image that you don’t find relevant to your search.
  3. Select the image, and then click/tap the Manage Tags icon from the toolbar.
  4. From the Manage Tags page, inspect the tags. If you don’t want the image to be searched based on a specific tag, select the tag and then click/tap the Delete icon from the toolbar. Alternatively, click/tap the (X) symbol that appears beside the label.
  5. To assign a higher rank to a tag, select the tag and click/tap the Promote icon from the toolbar. The tag you promote, is moved to the Tags section.
  6. Click/tap Save, and then click/tap OK to close the Success dialog.
  7. Navigate to the properties page for the image. Observe that the tag you promoted is assigned a high relevance and, therefore, appears higher in the search results.

Understand Experience Manager search results with smart tags

By default, Experience Manager search combines the search terms with an AND clause. Using smart tags does not change this default behavior. Using smart tags adds an additional OR clause to find any of the search terms in the applies smart tags. For example, consider searching for woman running. Assets with just woman or just running keyword in the metadata do not appear in the search results by default. However, an asset tagged with either woman or running using smart taggs appears in such a search query. So the search results are a combination of,

  • assets with both keywords, woman and running in the metadata.
  • assets smart tagged with either of the keywords.

The search results that match all search terms in metadata fields are displayed first, followed by the search results that match any of the search terms in the smart tags. In the above example, the approximate order of display of search results is:

  1. matches of woman running in the various metadata fields.
  2. matches of woman running in smart tags.
  3. matches of woman or of running in smart tags.
