Don’t Use Your <head>

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007

Where did you place your Google Analytics script?

Hopefully not in the <head>…

Google’s Analytic script is pretty intensive and if placed in the head then your pages could be taking longer to load than need be.

Your script, like the one below, should be placed directly before the close of the </body> tag!

  1. <script src="http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js" type="text/javascript">
  2. </script>
  3. <script type="text/javascript">
  4.   _uacct = "UA-XXXXXXX-1";
  5.   urchinTracker();
  6.  
  7. </script>

Judging by the fact that some big dogs like: Copyblogger, ShoeMoney and CSSBeauty all have it wrong, you might want to check yourself.

Just trying to give you a <head>s up :)

Google Blog on NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW, NOARCHIVE & NOSNIPPET META Tags

Saturday, February 24th, 2007

The Google Blog explains the robots exclusion protocol:

“Usually when the Googlebot finds a page, it reads all the links on that page and then fetches those pages and indexes them.”

But, what if you don’t want Google to index a page, or follow the links on a page, or archive a page?

Here is a list of META tags you can use:

  • NOINDEX tells Google not to index the page
  • NOFOLLOW tells Google not to follow the links on the page
  • NOARCHIVE tells Google not to store a cached copy of the page
  • NOSNIPPET tells Google not to show a snippet (description) under your Google listing, it will automatically get NOARCHIVE too
