Local Search Optimization Tips

Whether or not you have a brick and mortar store, it is vital to ensure your web site is ranked well in searches for your local area. So don’t neglect localized searches. Some of your best customers could be right around the corner, but if they can’t find your web site in the local listings that they use, they might never come through your door.

Are you ranking well in the searches of your local area?

Alt Attributes and Search Engines

Many webmasters and inexperienced or unethical SEOs abuse the use of this attribute, trying to stuff it with keywords, hoping to achieve a certain keyword density, which is not as relevant for rankings now as it once was.

On the contrary, high keyword density can, on some search engines, trigger spam filters, which may result in a penalty for your site’s ranking. Even without such a penalty, your site’s rankings will not benefit from this tactic.

Do you use your the alt attribute for your images with care?

Google introduced X-Robots-Tag directive

Google introduced the new X-Robots-Tag directive, which adds Robots Exclusion Protocol (REP) META tag support for non-HTML pages, like PDF, Videos, Spreadsheet files, etc. You can have the same control over such indexed file types.

X-Robots-Tag: unavailable_after: 31 Dec 2007 23:59:59 EST

Also be aware that REP META tags can be useful for implementing noarchive, nosnippet, and now unavailable_after tags for page-level instruction, as opposed to robots.txt, which is controlled at the domain root.

Google introduced “unavailable_after” Meta tag

Google introduced a new META tag that allows you to tell them when a page should be removed from the main Google web search results called unavailable_after tag. This one follows a similar syntax to other META tags. For example, to specify that an HTML page should be removed from the search results after 7pm Eastern Standard Time on 19th August 2007, simply add the following tag to the first section of your page:

<META NAME="GOOGLEBOT" CONTENT="unavailable_after: 19-Aug-2007 19:00:00 EST">

That information will be treated as a removal request, which it will take about a day after the removal date passes for your page to disappear from the search results. Currently they only support unavailable_after for Google web search results.

After the removal, your page will stop showing in Google search results but it is not removed from their system.
