Yup let's test this.
I am not sure you guys know. Google does not like tag clouds.
This is too general.
The tag cloud is like a link list.
First of all the tags should not be random and not too much as well.
It might appear that some tags are "useless".
At the same time you can put useful and sensefull keywords into the tag cloud, helping users and Google and so your SEO.
So why do you bring up tag clouds? Do you think the tags page should be changed or removed, or what?
The tag cloud on the home page of this forum is a small number of links. The tags page is a tag cloud, but it's not on every page so the same ideas don't apply as for sidebar tag clouds.
It's upon you guys on how you take it. Thought of informing, that's all
Interesting, but two negatives mentioned, pagerank bleed and keyword stuffing, don't seem to apply to the small number of tags displayed on the homepage.
I agree with your statment
