The Robot Exclusion Profile is a reworking of the [[Robots META]] tag (and less-standard extensions) as a [[microformat]].

The [[Robots META]] tag is used to provide page-specific direction for web crawlers.  While being useful in many cases, its page-specific nature means it cannot be used to restrict crawlers from indexing only certain sections of a document.  Several attempts have been made to create more granular solutions through various methods but have perceived shortcomings that limit their use; the Robot Exclusion Profile defines a microformat that can be applied to any element or set of elements in a page.
+
-
Like other microformats such as [[hcalendar|hCalendar]], the Robot Exclusion Profile defines a set of class names that may be applied to (X)HTML elements.  <code>class</code> can be applied to almost every (X)HTML element, which means that authors may be as specific or general as they wish in their application.  This differs from the similarly-purposed <code>rel="nofollow"</code> attribute, which may only be applied to (and does not refer to the content of) a specific inline link.  (It is interesting to note that this behavior is entirely encompassed by the use of <code>class="robots-nofollow"</code> on the same element.)  Classes are also additive, so multiple values can be specified at once, e.g. <code>class="robots-nofollow robots-noindex"</code>.  For robot exclusion in particular, this allows authors to specify multiple rules for an element without adding unnecessary extra markup.

<code><nowiki>http://example.org/xmdp/robots-profile#</nowiki></code> (obviously placeholder)

The classes defined by the Robot Exclusion Profile should be considered meaningless when the profile URI is not present in the document <code>&lt;head&gt;</code>'s <code>profile</code> attribute.

A consequence of this is that the small summaries that modern search engines display with the result links also exclude the <code>robots-noarchive</code>.  We suggest replacing small excluded segments with an ellipsis [<code>...</code>].  Unarchived segments of a size comparable to the segments the search engine normally uses for summaries can just be omitted.  Probably a display of an entire cached document which has unarchived segments should also include some locution to show the places where text has been elided, no matter what the size.
