Question About Robot No-crawl Techniques
Posted 08 June 2005 - 02:36 PM
My question is, does anyone know if there is a way to keep robots from crawling certain parts of a page? For example, if I wanted the robot to crawl an entire page expect for one paragraph on that page...
We have some drop-down lists on our site that we'd rather the robots skip over in order to get to the meaningful content.
Thanks in advance for any help that you could offer.

But you can block pages and folders with Robots.txt[/hr]

The first drop-down list that we have shows several different vehicle manufacturers so that our customer can just see parts for their vehicle. On many of our searches results, it lists all of those vehicles and that uses up all of our words for the description underneath our link...
We're trying to get the bots to skip over all those vehicles so that it can show more meaningful information in the search results.

...would it help if the dropdowns were written in at the end of the page and positioned with CSS? At least the crawlers would find them last and, possibly, be less inclined to use them in the description snippet.

There are some corporate SE products that allow you to block portions of a page from being searched by embedding special HTML tags that they reconize, but on the Internet there are no code standards to do so.
If the SE see the JS dropdown selections then the JS is only used to execute the selection chosen, and the HTML code behind the selection is in normal HTML being indexed by the SE and not being skipped by the SE. Maybe ensure that every item being used the menu is set inside <--! <script></script> --> tags

The best way to control the descriptions is to make sure your Meta keyword tag uses the search query phrase that you're talking about, then you'll have a good chance of that showing instead.
