locked Re: categorisation
Owners should be encouraged to include a Keywords section in their group descriptions. Our group has added it below the primary description (in very small font size so it is less obtrusive), but it is of course scanned by the search engine. All variations of pertinent keywords should be included: plural, singular, compound, etc.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Example- a search for any of the following terms will include our group in the results:
I'd suggest that there should be a separate Keywords section in the group settings. That would prompt new group owners to compose a list of meaningful keywords and would improve the usefulness of groups search generally.
Public display of the keywords section in the group's description could be made optional but the search engine would always include them as hits in its results.
I suppose browse categories such as "Science", "Art", etc., could also be included in the keywords. I don't know that we need to have Groups.io "official" categories; I'd probably never be inclined to use them for my own group searches or group's keywords.
BTW, if you add keywords or otherwise alter your group's description the changes won't appear in the search results for a day or so.
