public virtual string Tags { get; set; }

public virtual string Tags { get; set; }

Use ITagEngine to query for data:

IEnumerable<ContentData> GetContentByTag(string tagName);
IEnumerable<ContentData> GetContentsByTag(Tag tag);
IEnumerable<ContentData> GetContentsByTag(string tagName, ContentReference rootContentReference);
IEnumerable<ContentData> GetContentsByTag(Tag tag, ContentReference rootContentReference);
IEnumerable<ContentReference> GetContentReferencesByTags(string tagNames);
IEnumerable<ContentReference> GetContentReferencesByTags(IEnumerable<Tag> tags);
IEnumerable<ContentReference> GetContentReferencesByTags(string tagNames, ContentReference rootContentReference);
IEnumerable<ContentReference> GetContentReferencesByTags(IEnumerable<Tag> tags, ContentReference rootContentReference);
