[Objective] It's important to improve application performance of social tags by selecting or recommending tags with high quality automatically. [Methods] The existing research on quality evaluation of social tags are separated into content and social attributes of tags, which don't combine these two attributes to evaluate the social tags. In this paper, the authors use tag's content and social attributes to evaluate the quality of tags by statistical machine learning model. [Results] Exprimental results show that with combining content and social attributes of tags, the quality evaluaton model based on SVM outperforms other models. [Limitations] Only use the blog tag data to evaluate the quality of social tags. The performance based on the social attributes are not perfect. Some social attributes can not effectively improve the automatic classification of social tags' quality. [Conclusions] This work is useful for improving the performance of the tags organization and related application.
