In Windows 7, I want to add tags to my files (PDF, Word, Images etc) so that they appear directly in the search results, regardless of their content, title etc.

This link shows how to search by tag, but it does not tell how to add a tag in any file.

In the long term, I'm planning to add such tags programmatically as well.

You do it from windows explorer view enter image description here
Just select a file that can have tags added to it and adjust those in the bottom pane. Doesn't matter which view you're using. The link I provided in my comment should help as well. You need to identify that the file type will allow tags as some will not or require third party tools - this link provides a solution for .pdf files, for instance

It doesn't work with other files –  user Feb 3 '12 at 17:25
    
Add tags or other properties to a file should also be useful. –  Kunal Jha Dec 31 '13 at 5:07
