Thank you for the suggestion though!
BTW, is there a proper place where to report missing tags in sets?
Another question: is there a more affordable and flexible way to search by tag than adding a "|Tag" after the searched word?
As for searching by tags, you can use the drop-down list at the top of the page, same way you select year, theme etc.
About searching among tags, I'm not sure I've understood: in the dropdown list I can see "all", "sets", etc... but not "tags". Besides, in search results page, I can't see any "tag" filter. Am I miss anything?
This could be a nice addition to the search box, in the search suggestions tags appear with very low priority, that means they don't appear unless other matching elements are very few.
A "tag list" page could be very useful too.
Tags are often a way better way (pun intended!) to find something in the database, especially group of things (using set's name often results in incomplete results), so that when I have to do these kind of searches I often start from a specific set and then click on a tag in its tags list. Search among tags and a tags page would be much more comfortable for that.
Here's the tag list: https://brickset.com/browse/sets/tags
I'll add it to my menu.
About the search, tags appear but in my experience only if other results matching with the searched word are very few.
Besides, often I don't know the exact word(s) that define a tag, and that's why a search among tags would be very useful. The tags page is for the same purpose (using the browser search inside the page), but requires one more step (access to the tags page instead than directly using the search box in the home page).
Anyway for me the tags page is enough (especially because I can add it to my menu)!
Anyway I think that the easiest way to obtain a search among tags is to add "tags" among selectable targets in the search dropdown list.
Maybe a checkbutton somewhere?
'Lego House' is in both the set name and the subtheme, however it would be nice if it was also listed when searching for that tag.

I came across this when browsing the Seasonal GWP's, which lists #3300020 Holiday Set 1 of 2, but not 2 of 2. 🙂
Is this because there are a couple of parts (like a tile representing a set) are included, therefore the set is flagged as microscale even though it is minifigure scale?
Also ship in a bottle. While the ship is microscale, the object is about life scale.
Plus microscale is used inconsistently. For example, doesn't Big Bang have a model rocket on the shelf? But that doesn't have microscale as a tag.

Maybe someone has further insight?
