With the new AIM it is possible to add multiple words into one tag. 

I thought about putting plurals and singulars into one tag; 

Hence using "goose geese" in one tag rather than doing two tags "goose", "geese". 

 

Has somebody experience or an opinion if that is wise, unwise or neutral?

The advantage of the multi-word tag is that it puts you higher in searche for that specific phrase.

I probably would if I needed to save tags, but I rarely get into the 30s these days. So, probably not. The only time I do it to save time is when pasting the caption in as a single tag.

Can't think what benefit this would be. It's easy to create two separate tags if you want both singular and plurals.

 

Putting both forms in a a single tag seems oxymoronic to me. B)

Putting both in one tag would actually place your image lower down than those with them in since tags. If someone was searching for "cows" images with cows as a single tag would come before your double tag. Alamy explained that this is done so people wouldn't get unnecessary views of images that had nothing to do with the clients search and the client doesn't have to wade through unrelated images.  Let's say you had an image of a tiger lily and someone searched for Tiger.  Obviously they don't want to see a flower so that image will have lower priority. Sinless tag is best.

Good point! 

 

I just checked that the search engine does even seem to take regards of the order of words; 

 

Tried "barnacle goose" and "goose barnacle" and both yield different and relevant results, as the first is something different than the second.
