Are the tags (search engine results pages) and (search results) the same?

If so, should (edit) be synonymized into ?

Doing a spot check of the tagged questions, the tags appear to be used interchangeably.

    Yes, the serps tag should be changed to a tag synonym of the more commonly recognized search-results tag/term..

The two are similar enough to merge. I would prefer to merge into because the former is jargon and the latter is likely to more widely understood.

  • I agree. serps has more questions tagged, but search-results is more immediately apparent to people who are not familiar with the term serp. Commented Sep 13, 2021 at 15:56
