Yahoo! Search through Priyank Garg announced the introduction of the new tag for websites which is the “Robots-Nocontent” tag. This tag will tell Yahoo! crawler to focus on the main content of the a page which will help the Yahoo! Search in targeting the right pages of a site in specific search queries.
So, those parts which are not really related to the main content of the site like, the menu, advertisements, links and other stuffs, will be marked using the “Robots-Nocontent” tag. Those parts tagged with it are not really useful to Yahoo! Search but just for the site visitors and will not be considered as information for finding the page or for the abstract in the search result.
So, how to apply the tag into the pages of our sites?
Garg gave us some examples:
<div class=”robots-nocontent”> This is the navigational menu of the site and is common on all pages. It contains many terms and keywords not related to this site</div>
<span class=”robots-nocontent”> This is the site header that is present on all pages of the site and is not related to any particular page</span>
<p class=”robots-nocontent”> This is a boilerplate legal disclaimer required on each page of the site</p>
<div class=”robots-nocontent”> This is a section where ads are displayed on the page. Words that show up in ads may be entirely unrelated to the page contents</div>
What do you think about it?
