<title>SunRain Free Plone Theme  &mdash; Site</title>
<!--Here your HTML comment can be displayed-->

5. Robot Tag

The Robots META Tag is used by search engines as a means to indicate the level of spidering a search engine should do. Most search engines look for this META tag and will only index and/or spider the pages you want to be indexed. This tag is useful when you cannot upload or control the /robots.txt file of your websites. This is the last chance to keep your content out of search engine indexes and services.

Robots META Tag that may contain one or more of the following keywords without regard to case: noindex, nofollow, all, index and follow.

<meta content="ALL" name="robots" />

6. Distribution Tag

The Distribution Tag defines the level of distribution of the present document. It defines the level or degree of distribution of your webpage and how it should be classified in relation to methods of distribution on the world wide web. There are currently only three forms of distribution supported by the distribution tag:

  • Global - indicates that your webpage is intended for mass distribution to everyone
  • Local - intended for local distribution of your document
  • IU - Internal Use (not intended for public distribution.
<meta content="Global" name="distribution" />

7. Canonical URL

Canonical URL for search engine marketing purposes is the URL you want people to see. Depending on how your web site was programmed or how your tracking URLs are setup for marketing campaign, there may be more than one URL for a particular web page.

The problem most search engine marketers run into deals with domains. Sometimes if a domain is not setup properly, the domain URL (example.com) and the www example URL (www.example.com) are considered individual web pages. So, our site might have identical or vastly similar content that's accessible through multiple URLs, e.g:

  • www.example.com
  • example.com/
  • www.example.com/index.html
  • example.com/home.asp

Since all pages may be indexed by Google - you could get hit for duplicate content and at the very least you would be splitting your link popularity.

Canonical URL field provides you with more control over the URL returned in search results. You can specify canonical URL for every single page.

8. Custom Meta Tags

Here you can specify additional local Meta Tags parameters to be added to the global Meta Tags. These might be for example - Price, Origin, Type etc. Any custom meta tags you need can be added here.
