4.5. Routes tags

Using tags on your published routes gives other users of the app an easy way to find them.  It is also an alternative way to search for routes other than by name or location.  Using tags is flexible and allows routes can be grouped under the same tag.

For example:  A mountain bike magazine may use the tag #mbuk and #mbuk324 so a user could search for #mbuk and see all routes for the magazine or #mbuk324 just see the routes for issue 324.

In the above example, the user would need to know what tag to search for but in a less formal example you could add the tags #norfolk, #beach and #norfolkbeach to your route to indicate that there is a beach nearby to the route and its in Norfolk- this is a bit more of a generic route search and may return a few routes.

Tags should be specific - a tag like #walk is not good as it may return too many routes in the list.
