Should we create a tag synonym for the and tags?

Currently the tag wiki for
says "to be used for any question where one needs to understand the meaning of a specific term, or usage of a specific word"
says "For questions about terms used in personal finance, alternative names for concepts, etc."

1 Answer 1


The tagged questions all look pretty similar. I've made terminology the primary as it has more questions now and seems a bit more specific.

I've roughly merged the two tag wikis to get:

For questions about the meaning and usage of specific terms used in personal finance, alternative names for concepts, etc.

  • +1 for merging the tags, for making 'terminology' the primary, and for your tag wiki excerpt.

    Think about Google, though. Would people search for "____ definition", or "_____ terminology"? On that basis, I suggest "definition" be the primary, so it appears in the page and is indexed. Commented Mar 11, 2016 at 16:39
  • @Chris - good point re Google. Can you find any examples where we actually appear in the google results for XXX definition? I tried searching based on some random picks from current list of 'definition' questions and couldn't find anything. Commented Mar 11, 2016 at 18:10
  • "bid ask definition" ... but then again, we rank on that (quoted above the top result) without the word "definition". Commented Mar 11, 2016 at 20:40
  • @Chris I've gone with terminology for now - let's start a new meta question if you think it's worth shifting to definition. Commented Mar 13, 2016 at 23:03
  • @GaneshSittampalam I don't have access to analytics or anything so I can't say what the impact would be; it was a hunch is all. Commented Mar 14, 2016 at 1:35
