Tagging Practice 2: Uses Plurals Instead of Singular Tags Use the plural version of a word instead of its singular version. This makes it easier to find notes when you search for them. If you type “picture” and the tag is “pictures,” the note will show up since partial matches count. However, if I type “pictures” and the tag is “picture,” the note won’t show up because Evernote doesn’t consider it to be the same word. Do your best to be uniform with tagging. The good news is if you get this right for a few weeks, most of the tags you add will already be there when you need to tag a new note.

When searching, you would have to remember that you used both words if you wanted to find anything. Trust me; this is hard to do years after creating a tag. Let’s give an example here. Instead of creating two tags with multiple words such as “2013 ebooks” and “2014 ebooks,” then I’d make sure to have a tag for every aspect of a note. Example: • 2014 • Ebooks • Evernote That way, if I want to find notes for all the books I publish in 2014, I’d a do a search like this: tag:2014 tag:ebooks. If I wanted to find the notes for this book, however, then I’d do this search: tag:2014 tag:ebooks tag:evernote.

While I’m a fan of tagging, others can make the valid argument that you’ll be better organized by maintaining a large assortment of notebooks. The people who are “against” tagging use Evernote like a classic filing system. Their stacks and notebooks provide a hierarchical method of organizing information. With this system, all they have to do is open a notebook (or stack) to find all information related to a specific topic. The benefit of tags is you get an additional, lateral method of finding information.
