Site News: Tuning the Tagging Algorithm

We've heard a lot of feedback from you about the tags we use for filtering jobs. Specifically, we've tended to tag posts way too liberally. For example, let's say there's a job description that says "must work with QA to resolve issues." Often our tagger was pretty dumb and would slap a qa tag on that job. For people looking for quality assurance gigs, this is pretty annoying.

A few minutes ago we pushed a new release out that tweaks our tagging algorithm a bit. Hopefully things will improve on all the new jobs we import going forward. We're not done yet, either. We hope to edit down our list of tags to make them more useful going forward.

Stay tuned and keep that feedback coming in!
