Youtube Creators Share at Google Plus
You may have noticed - we made tags private, so you can't see them on the watch page anymore. Viewers weren't using them, and some abused them. Please keep providing tags when you upload, though - they're important tools to help promote and connect your videos!

Not interested in youtube tags but helps a lot in wordpress sites to increase number of pages in site
This is a bad thing. Pages and pages of tag category soup will dilute your crawl budget and clog up the SERPs with useless junk. It encourages duplicate content and probably attracts pandas like spam-filled bamboo.
YouTube probably has a very good idea of what makes SEO sense. Moreover, I don't remember the last time I deliberately visited a tag page.
