I know how to create a new Tag, but what is benefit to me if I do create one?

I know it will help to specify the problem category, but what other benefits does a Tag owner get?

For every 100 tags you create, you get a cookie :) Seriously now, what benefit, other than helping organize the site, did you expect? A good tag will get you a silver Taxonomist badge, isn't it enough? –  Yannis Jan 17 '12 at 9:33

@ZaphodBeeblebrox - Is that like the cake for 10k rep? –  Oded Jan 17 '12 at 9:34
    
@Oded No, the cookie is not a lie! (^_-) –  Yannis Jan 17 '12 at 9:36
    
@ZaphodBeeblebrox: I've got 15 cookies from Stack Overflow, and I didn't even create a tag! :) –  Goran Jovic Jan 17 '12 at 9:38
    
@ZaphodBeeblebrox: you always have best guidance..thank you :) :) –  TofeeqAhmad Jan 17 '12 at 9:40

You can also help users who are unable to create new (valid) tags (/privileges/create-tags) which provides the benefit of a warm fuzzy feeling in helping them out.

I know it will help to specify problem category

Is that not benefit enough?

By tagging the question, chances of it getting the attention of people interested in that kind of thing is greater - simply looking at the tags people can see if they think they can or cannot help. This in turn means that you have a better chance of getting an answer, and a better answer at that.

If the tag is used in 50 and more questions, you get the taxonomist badge.

Hmm funny you guys took the time to answer this mans question yet you didn't up vote it? Why is that? You expect him to accept one of your answers but you don't do the courtesy of marking his as a good question –  JPM Jan 24 '12 at 5:53

What benefit do you have to answer questions and solve other people's problems?

If that answers your question - you'll get a badge if you create a good tag: Taxonomist. Now, is that a benefit and what kind of a benefit would you expect is beyond my knowledge.
