SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is it possible with SharePoint 2010 Server to have a "Related Content" section on pages, where it automatically pulls in links to other pages that have content tagged together? Is this built-in or an add-on?

So let's say a page is created that has information about "recipes", another page uses the same tag "recipes", and we can have a "Related Content" web part that displays a certain number of links to other pages that have the same tag(s).

Thanks.

I recently played around with this product for a project I was working on, but it's part of a bigger suite which had components the customer didn't need:

May be worth evaluating.

At the same time I came across this blog post on how to accomplish this OOB (it more or less met the customer's requirements):

Loving that second link –  tarjeieo Aug 2 '11 at 13:46
    
Very nice. Thank you, Rob, especially for the second link. Looked all over and didn't see that. We'd like to go with built-in and free solutions first. –  Alex C Aug 2 '11 at 13:51

Yep...good stuff...stumbled across that one looking for something else. –  Rob D'Oria Aug 2 '11 at 13:51

Although Rob D'Oria provides a very good solution, please consider the use of sharepoint search, and especially federated search too. You can enrich your related content cross-site collection content, content from other systems that is indexed or even content from the internet, like google, wikipedia, bing, twitter, you name it!

Thanks, Bas. We're implementing SharePoint enterprise search and will of course have that feature available to the users. –  Alex C Aug 3 '11 at 6:34
