    Tagging solution question

    The idea of tagging solution(book mark, search,blogs, facebook) is not clear to me. So in simple explanation what is a tagging solution? Is the database structure below an example of tag solution? Thanks.

    Code:
    CREATE TABLE article (
        id INTEGER NOT NULL autoincrement,
        modified TIMESTAMP,
        content TEXT
        ...
        PRIMARY KEY (id)
    );
    
    CREATE TABLE keyword (
        word VARCHAR(20),
        article_id INTEGER, /* references article.id
        relevance FLOAT DEFAULT 0.5, /* allow users to record relevance of keyword to article*/
        PRIMARY KEY (word, article_id)
    );
    
    CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE search (
        word VARCHAR(20),
        PRIMARY KEY (word)
    );
    Let say I have key words 'Apple' and 'Orange' stored on a a column they have reference column (article_id). When I type something on a search box, let say I type "Look for apple and orange", then I explode that and search on key word table with reference(article_id), this is tag search based right?

    I have to be honest, I am not 100% sure but my understanding is if you have a db with articles, each article has a field for keywords. You would then query with something like:

    SELECT * FROM $db.$table WHERE keywords LIKE '%$searchstring%';

    Code:
    CREATE TABLE article (
        id INTEGER NOT NULL autoincrement,
        modified TIMESTAMP,
        content TEXT
        ...
        PRIMARY KEY (id)
    );
    
    CREATE TABLE keyword (
        word VARCHAR(20),
        article_id INTEGER,
        relevance FLOAT DEFAULT 0.5, /* allow users to record relevance of keyword to article*/
        PRIMARY KEY (word, article_id)
    );
    Roughly

    Code:
    Select *
    FROM article, keyword
    WHERE $word = keyword.word and keyword.article_id = article.id
    GROUP BY relevance;
    $word being the word you are looking for. You would modify the where statement with "and" if you are searching for more than one word. Hint: Use an array.

    So what is better an article table that include key word id, or key word table that includes article id?

    @spufi thanks for the post...

    I wouldnt try to make a relational table with this. I would have a keyword field within the article table.

    The keyword field will contain keyword values separated by comma? Something like "keyword1, Keyword2, Keyword3"?

    Yeah. Then you can do a like search. Now if you wanted to only have specific keywords, then maybe a separate table but if you want to just add keyword, just do it in a new field.

    But is it, a field containing keywords separated by comma against data base normalization?

    What happens if you need to remove a keyword? Pull the whole field and edit? LIKE queries are much more expensive than a simple join...relational would be best in this case.
