Hi Everyone,

I am working with a library and they use Dublin Core metadata. I didn't think that any of the engines read DC, but I haven't seen this subject come up for many years...

I started to think about this again, because there is a drupal SEO module that comes with DC options in it, which was pretty cool. That and the library made me wonder, is Dublin Core still useless in terms of the engines?

Thanks!

Snidely

probably. People build all manner of "plugins" and call them SEO, doesn't mean they actually do anything at all.

The search engines are more into Rich Snippet data these days.

Google and Bing ignore most of the Dublin Core meta elements but there is some overlap between the meta directives they do advocate using and the Dublin Core set.

I don't think I have actually come across any SEO articles that accurately catalog all the current meta directives supported by the major search engines. Most people seem to be unaware of the more esoteric ones.
