Problem: Tags on topic pages are not visible to web spiders

Steps to replicate:
1 Visit any tagged topic page in normal browser mode

2 Now turn off javascript or try to access it from any text browser, you will not find tags on this page

Yes this is an oversight @eviltrout as well.

We’ve never actually created a plugin API for changing the crawler content. I’m looking into it now - hopefully it’s not a lot of work.

Okay here we go:

https://github.com/discourse/discourse/commit/92cddfa5986713e87b434c83e66106c43d231874

The tags are now shown to the crawler. There is no list view of tags yet though, that would be a whole new template and stuff.
