In this post, i will help you to generate a Tag Cloud based on the TaxKeyword, the default enterprise TAG for SharePoint. This sample is for OOTB or not. I’m using SharePoint Search. Let’s roll to the search method: Now that we have the DataTable let´s get the Tags from the TAGS Field Let’s replace all “L0|#” and remove all Guid’s   After having our tags, let’s take a count for each TAG, I’m taking 11 for my render   So? Let´s render. I’m having a bug :), but let´s remove the first 2 characters   THE TAG CLOUD This is an example, but you can refine it. I’m taking the total, that is 11, and passing the xCount

As in all features, this one is no exception, as to be configured properly. Narahari Patro, have a sample for creating with Powershell, i made some small modifications bellow, see original post. This samples are based in 2 Levels, change for more, this is only to provide a sample of it, enjoy   The advantages are enormous, like you can deprecate one item without delete it, then can be reused. I made a sample with c# Server Side to read this items.
