    crowd-sourced tags

    Please explain "crowd-sourced tags" more easily in the following.

    The categorization doesn't have to be structured by the retailer. Crowd-sourced tags can help customers find products in an online store. Amazon's recommendation engine provides a list of products tailored to your recent store-browsing history ...

    Thank you.

    Re: crowd-sourced tags

    Lots of products online have "tags" attached to them. For example, a hairdryer might be tagged with beauty, haircare, hair styling, blowdry, electrical equipment etc. All the words are connected in some way to a hair dryer. "Crowd-sourced tags" are tags which have been added by users of the product and the website. Usually the website will add some of the tags themselves, but crowd-sourced tags might include things like hair-do, amazing, Sony, curls, wavy, gorgeous, fantastic​ and any other words those users would connect to the product.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
