10 meaningful words
Martin McEvoy WebOrganics 07:47, 12 May 2007 (PDT)
To display visible Keywords similar to the ones that an author would place in the head of their document e.g
<meta name="keywords" content="your keywords,go here,separated by a comma,but not a space" />
I'm not putting my keywords in the head of the document but in another largely ignored part of a website the footer.
The Idea is to tag your website or blog with 10 meaningful words about your website or more precisely descriptive words about the things that relate to your website the most. A similar idea is used when you are asked to tag your blog when you add a new blog to technorati. The hope is that if you type these 10 keywords into a search engine or directory then the result will be your website.
Example this is what my website WebOrganics has in the footer:
<ol class="xoxo"> <li> <dl> <dt>10 <a href="http://tantek.com/presentations/2005/09/elements-of-xhtml/">Meaningful</a> Words</dt> <dd class="info"> <a href="http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/" rel="tag">Semantic</a> <a href="http://www.molly.com/2005/11/14/web-standards-and-the-new-professionalism/" rel="tag">Standards</a> <a href="http://www.w3.org/WAI/gettingstarted/Overview.html" rel="tag">Accessibility</a> <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Implementation" rel="tag">Implementation</a> <a href="http://microformats.org/wiki/introduction" rel="tag">Microformats</a> <a href="http://www.adammathes.com/academic/computer-mediated-communication/folksonomies.html" rel="tag">Folksonomy</a> <a href="http://www.rubyonrails.org/" rel="tag">Rails</a> <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-source_software" rel="tag">Open</a> <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organic_search_engine" rel="tag">Organic</a> <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_design" rel="tag">Universal</a> </dd> </dl> </li> </ol>
I have a visible maybe new microformat meaningful in my <dt> tag my description term also a link to an article that explains this , the <a> tag's have similar links to my keywords, all the <a> atributes are paired with the rel="tag" microformat, the idea is that this is simple.
Does it work?
search these 10 keywords. Semantic Standards Accessibility Implementation Microformats Folksonomy Rails Open Organic Universal
- Meaningful words mean something!... do they?
- Can people be taged in a similar way? XFN
- Maybe its just a good example of posh in action.
I know the evidence is un-conclusive but it is something to think about eh...
