I’ve programmed a little plugin for the WordPress software (that is running the blog here). It makes it easier to show the tag-cloud and the archive in posts and pages.
It just always bothered me that I had these huge lists of archive links in the sidebar. Now I have only a very condensed cloud there – and show the full version via the plugin on the tag-cloud page and archive page. This way users can still find everything. The archive I combined with the popular posts there.
It’s neat that the google search engine perceives content very much like a user would: Too many links, and it starts valuing them less. So less is better for the overview, while it also can still find every tag and archive on the extra pages.
