Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Delicious has different ways of showing the bookmarks, but there isn't anything that lets you discover the most bookmarked site for a specific tag. For eg., if the tag is Visio, it should show the bookmarks where visio is a tag in order of how many times its been tagged by all users.

Is there something out there??

Perhaps not exactly what you wanted but do you know about the popular keyword?

e.g. http://delicious.com/popular/Visio

I think the api has changed. Now it is delicious.com/tag/Visio/popular –  rofrol Feb 11 '14 at 16:47

Your intuition is correct, getting most-bookmarked-link in a tagset is an awesome way to whittle down solutions to find really common links that are tagged. I recently needed a quick solution for an HTML form that I needed to be emailed with PHP for an old client that had been using an offsite service that broke.

I went to delicious.com/tag/form+php+email and found a lot of bookmarks tagged. I tried going to delicious.com/popular/form+php+email but it just truncates the single, first tag.

My final good-enough solution was this greasemonkey script that adds a couple links to sort the visible links by popularity (and others) with javascript. I then set the # visible to 100. The obvious popular link floated to the top and saved me a lot of time of sorting through bad solutions!

Its like Stack Exchange says--the best result should float to the top! Why didn't Yahoo think of that? Why can't we sort all bookmarked items? Is it some sort of caching concern?
