Geo Tag, make better your SEO

Tags: , , ,

geo tagAfter we know about Meta Tag and Title Tag, another significant thing in SEO for 2008 is Geo Tag. Just for a glance, by adding some line of Geo Tag, its better to make your site more Search Engine Friendly. Geo Tag itself contains information about Geographic Location of your site which search engine robot will determine your targeted visitors or readers came from. So what must we know about this Geo Tag?

Basically, Geo Tag consist of 3 element, there are:

[ META NAME=”geo.position” CONTENT=”latitude; longitude” ]
[ META NAME=”geo.placename” CONTENT=”place name” ]
[ META NAME=”geo.region” CONTENT=”country code” ]

On the first line (geo.position) determine geographic position according latitude and longitude.
The second line (geo.placename) determine geographic position according place name, location name, and city name.
The last, third line (geo.region) determine geographic position according to the country or state.

Here for example:

[ META NAME=”geo.position” CONTENT=” 40.7; -74″ ]
[ META NAME=”geo.country” CONTENT=”US” ]
[ META NAME=”geo.placename” CONTENT=”New York City” ]

Above Geo Tag codes means that the site is located in New York City.

Practically, not all element of Geo Tag must be followed. Or, we don’t need too much details about our geographic location. For instance, if you live in United States, then just give value “US” at your geo.country, that is enough.

If you want more details, just see this:

[ META NAME=”geo.position” CONTENT=” 38; -98″ ]
[ META NAME=”geo.country” CONTENT=”US” ]
[ META NAME=”geo.placename” CONTENT=”United States” ]

Finally, how to get the value code of geo tag (especially for latitude and longitude) ? Are we must have navigation tools such as GPS? Not actually, just using this tool to find the latitude and longitude, then enter the given code to Geo Tag Generator to get the full codes. Easy right ?
