Why don't we use a 'solved' tag instead of [solved] keyword in question title?

I see usually moderators add the [solved] keyword in title to check those questions that actually were successfully answered and answer was green checked by the post creator.

Why aren't we just tagging them with a solved tag? Is it because of SEO (Search Engine Optimization)?

In my opinion a solved tag instead may also facilitate queries because it can be used as a filter mechanism.

What is your opinion on that?

I think it is better to have the tag and not rename questions. The tag can be made accessible only to admins and moderators to avoid misuse

For what it is worth, I prefer the tag as a solution. It is far more elegant than renaming questions.

I agree, a tag would be way more elegant. I read in another thread that adding [solved] to the thread name would assist search engines (google etc.) which is why I've been renaming them.
