    • SEO for Librarians Nicholas Schiller LI 815 25 January 2014
    • How do libraries traditionally organize information?
    • Organized metadata typically in tables
 
 
 *from The Manga Guide to Databases
    • Well Organized Metadata: it’s what libraries do.
    • Enter the Web and problems of scale.

    • Does not Scale. ! Even with participatory web strategies a la Wikipedia. (DMOZ)
    • URL <title>
 
 <meta name=“description” 
 content =”snippet”>
 <meta name=“keywords”> 
 <a href=“http:/ / slim.emporia.edu”>
 anchor link text</a>
 
 <h1> <h2> <h3> <body>
    • HTML tags stand in for metadata fields anchor link text on external sites are counted as part of the site being linked to. So never use “click here.” (Very important) Keywords in valuable locations are a key to SEO
    • By har vesting existing implicit metadata, the Google method scales. No one has to look at every web page and describe it and put it into a category. Google harnesses how the web describes itself. (Bots)
    • A note about full text keyword search: Perfect keyword search is not very useful. This is why Google succeeded when a lot of better funded search engines failed. Another problem of scale.
    • HTML Tags as metadata Links as votes Traffic as reputation <a href=“url” rel=“nofollow”>text</a> Anchor link text as descriptive metadata location, history, platform, browser, etc.
