Tim Mayer at the Indexing Summit

Tim then brings up a remarkable new tagging system that Yahoo! is proposing and would like to see the other engines support. It's a method to specify the separate content blocks of a page, so the search engines don't need to conduct block-level analysis in their algorithms. The tags look like this:

  • <div class="content-public"> </div> - indicating the content is publicly created and not monitored by the site owner
  • <div class="content-nav"> </div> - indicating that this is internal navigation content for the site
  • <div class="content-default"> </div> - indicating that this is the primary content area of the page
  • Tim notes that these tags can also be applied to link attributes.

He says that in order to bypass it, he simply builds a subdomain on an existing and well-ranking site, then 301 re-directs to the new URL. He warns against getting too granular for subdomains and says to try to use a general domain rather than a specifically themed site.
