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.
By default, AEM 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 woman and running keywords 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:
- matches of woman running in the various metadata fields.
- matches of woman running in smart tags.
- matches of woman or of running in smart tags.
