Yahoo! Robots-Nocontent

Yahoo! supports a robots-nocontent attribute, which you can wrap around the unimportant parts of a page to tell Yahoo! to ignore it. The code could be applied like so:

<p class="robots-nocontent"> This is a boilerplate legal disclaimer required on each page of the site</p>

I wouldn't recommend using the robots-nocontent attribute on site navigation as well structured local navigation tends to be rather rich in keywords that help support the current document. Rather than using robots-nocontent I would be more inclined to add more original useful content to the page and limit boilerplate code as best you can.

Yahoo! offers tips on using the robots-nocontent attribute here: http://www.ysearchblog.com/archives/000444.html

Google & Yahoo: Informational Bias05.25.15

Yahoo! has a tool called Yahoo! Mindset that allows you to place greater emphasis on commercial or informational results.

By default, Google tends to bias the search results heavily toward informational resources. This makes business sense for them for many reasons:

  • They want to promote creating additional search inventory to show search ads against. As inventory is created, they can demand more out of new content by biasing their algorithms to work harder at promoting the creation of higher quality content.
  • As more information clogs up the search results, more searchers will click on AdWords for commercial searches. Merchants are then stuck using AdWords for commercial transactions.
  • Many informational sites are monetized using contextual ads such as Google AdSense.

    Just in case you are new to Adsense we will briefly go over some of it's finer points. Adsense delivers relevant text and image ads that are precisely targeted to your site content.

    AdSense Ad Placement Tips05.04.15

    In this lesson we will go over the layout for your pages and why they are a key part of your Adsense earnings.

    With Adsense you can place up to 3 ad blocks on your web page. You will find different theories on whether or not it is most effective to have your ads blend in with or stand out from the content on your page. While some would say they have better results when the ads stand out, in my opinion it is best to try and make them blend in with the rest of the site as much as possible so that your visitors will see them as content rather than advertisements.

    SEO Keyword/Phrase Development04.19.15

    I have been building websites for nearly a decade and promoting them professionally for 5 as well. Ever since I can remember we have referred to it as Keywords. Keywords research, keyword density, meta-keywords"¦ totally pervasive. Much of the last few years or so I really started to move away from the tight association using that term seems to invoke. More often than not you will be looking at 'phrasings' more than actual keywords.

    The average end user (surfer/searcher) is evolving and becoming more Search Savvy in how they seek things out. You will see a lot of search referrers (search terms used to find a given site) with wild and varied search terms. It is rarely a 'dead hit' on the terms you're targeting. Some certainly are, but there is a vast amount of unique phrase searching going on. Learning to look at 'organic' phrasings and 'long tail' terms is important in your keyword/phrase research and development. It's more than just 'keywords' these days.

    Google Adsense Video Ads – A Bad Idea?04.12.15

    I know it's a little late for me to post about this but better late than never 😉

    If you a new AdSense Publisher you may not know that on May 23rd 2006, Inside AdSense introduced a new kind of ads called Video Ads. In my honest opinion, at that time, it's a bad idea it still is now. More →

    How do I Submit My Site to Google?04.05.15

    While Google also offers a free site submit option, the best way to submit your site is by having Google's spider follow links from other web pages.

    Google offers a Google Sitemaps program that you can use to help Google set crawl priorities. In addition to helping Google index your site, the Sitemaps program also shows you if they have any crawling problems with your site.

    Improve Your Sites Conversion Rate!03.29.15

    Good website usability can greatly improve the conversion rate of your website. If your website gets many visitors but only a few sales then it might be that your web pages are too cluttered and that you have to improve your website design.

    Google has a similar patent application with the name "Detecting and rejecting annoying documents" so it seems that good website design becomes more and more important if you want to get high search engine rankings.
