I'm working on a project that focuses heavily on Search to discover materials. My thought was to incorporate a tag based search feature to allow for quick search and quick filtering, not based on a set criteria of filters.
My problem is that I'm having a difficult time explaining and getting clients and team members to understand the tag based search system. If I know the name of this pattern I could find a good example to demo to show how it would work instead of just tell.
Below is a screenshot showing the tag based filter search, but this site actually is not a good example. It 'appears' to do what I would like (with the separate bubble tags with a x button) but the method of adding tags (on this site) is terrible.
I would also be interested to know if anyone has any input on whether this type of search method is good, or maybe it's not and that's why I can't find examples of anyone using it.
Update: and now that I'm adding tags to this post I see that the tag field works similarly to what I am describing!
