Please add a google-bigquery tag (see tag info on SO). DBA.SE questions that would be covered by this tag include:

Some questions related to BigQuery are currently using the bigtable tag, even though these are completely different databases, because that's the closest one available.

    Why is the tag google-bigquery and not just bigquery? We don't have miscrosost-sql-server, ibm-db2, oracle-mysql, oracle-oracle ... Oct 9, 2016 at 11:33
  • @ypercubeᵀᴹ – FWIW, it's already google-bigquery on SO, and for the tag bigtable on SO, it's frequently misused to mean simply "a large table", in questions completely unrelated to Bigtable, but about an entirely separate SQL db. Oct 10, 2016 at 1:55
  • yeah, I can understand how that can happen. It also happens frequently for other general tags (e.g "sql" that is misused, instead of "query" or "sql-server"). I can see how "big-query" will have similar effect. Still it doesn't feel very right, either here or at SO. Oct 10, 2016 at 6:48
