The use of clustering techniques enhances the user experience and thus the success of collaborative tagging services. We show that clustering techniques can improve the user experience of current tagging services. We first describe current limitations of tagging services, second, we give an overview of existing approaches. We then describe the algorithms we used for tag clustering and give experimental results and a variety of conclusions.
