Describes the process by which a certain content in the WWW, e.g. a text or an image, is marked in such a way that others can find it under a keyword. As a rule, any keyword can be conceived and entered. In most cases, newly entered text or images can be assigned to one or more existing keywords; however, new keywords can also be assigned.
