    Making a site robot friendly

    Hi

    Heard that its possible to easily make a website 'robot friendly' re search engines etc by simply adding in a piece of text

    Is this true & if so does anyone know the text to include

    Thank you

    Here is an example (note the bold text);

    <HEAD>
    <TITLE>2004 Ford Thunderbird 2005 Ford Thunderbird 2003 Ford Thunderbird pictures videos photos reviews tbird tbird thunderbirds repair tires</TITLE>
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Language" CONTENT="en-us">
    <META name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 6.0">
    <META name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
    <meta name="audience" content="all">

    Actually the only useful text is
    <meta name=description ...
    and
    <meta name=keywords ...

    <meta name="robots" content="index, follow">
    you can omit it, since robots will search your site by default.
    For the language thing, use
    <html lang=en-us> ...
    ... and remove the other meta tags.

    Check your keywords. It doesn't help to use "free", "all new", ... Use keywords that are specific to each page. You will end on page 999,568 with those keywords. Better don't provide any keywords than use the wrong ones!

    Check your title. It's not for stuffing keywords but to get visitors to your site. Just create a short title (maximum 65 characters). The title is the first line that will appear in the SERP and it's your task to increase the click-through ratio. BTW, a site with a good CTR in the SERP will also get a positive boost in PR!

    The main reason for the robots txt file is to exclude pages that have nothing to do with your sites theme. Example contact pages or privacy documents, etc. They dilute the theme of your site. see http://www.searchengineworld.com/rob...s_tutorial.htm for an explanation
