  • Hello HarishKumarBH,

    In order to add SharePoint 2010 Tags programmatically, you need to write code like this:

          string listItemUrl = null;
          using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://somesite "))
            using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())
              SPListItem item = web.Lists["ListName"].GetItemById(1);
              listItemUrl = web.Url + "/" + item.Url;
          SPServiceContext context = SPServiceContext.GetContext(SPServiceApplicationProxyGroup.Default,
          //Create SocialTagManager Object
          SocialTagManager stm = new SocialTagManager(context);
          //Get the TaxonomySession
          TaxonomySession ts = stm.TaxonomySession;
          TermSetCollection termSetCollection = ts.DefaultKeywordsTermStore.GetTermSets("Keywords", 1033);
          TermSet termSet = termSetCollection["Keywords"];
          var result = from t in termSet.Terms where t.Name == "I like it" select t;
          //Make sure that the tag name is already existed in the Store
          Term term = stm.TaxonomySession.DefaultKeywordsTermStore.KeywordsTermSet.Terms["I like it"];  
          if(term != null)
                //add the tag to item
            stm.AddTag(new Uri(listItemUrl), term);   

    Please make sure that this code is run under proper identity. And the Tag Name is already existed in the Term store.
