If you plan to rank high with Search Engines, you have to follow their dictate on what code (programming language) is used for your site. This is because, high ranking requires Search Engine friendly code. Thus, all cool scripts, animations, and newest technology are a no-no because Search Engines aren't trying to keep up with technology to be able to read code and index it's message.
Are you aware that unless you place a robot.txt file in root of your web site advising Search Engines where they can index, that they have their robots invade every nook and cranny of your web site collecting information? Did anyone ask you for your consent prior to their invading your data? Nobody asked me.
Now I know it may seem as though I'm anti-Search Engine, but I'm not. On contrary, I recognize need for some sort of protection from Search Engine spamming by over- zealous persons trying to be number one on list. However, I think Search Engines are going about it wrong. And, I believe Search Engines should be regulated.
I believe it's time to turn clock back a little. I believe a URL need only be listed one time. The exception to this rule would be a paid for enhanced listing that could be graphical and be a portion of, to a full page advertisement. Funny, it sounds like "Yellow Pages" doesn't it? Then I'd make Search Engines more locale specific. That way you could be listed in a local, state, national, and/or international directory. But regardless of all else I would ensure that every web site that submitted their URL had their site listed.
There would be no "sandbox," no "penalties," and "no dictates on site construction, content, or any other variable that restricts anyone in any way." A few years back, web sites were indexed and added to directories based upon their "KEYWORDS" and "DESCRIPTION" META TAGS. That is as it should be still. And, if anyone is going to apply a rating or ranking to a web site it would most certainly not be Search Engine that web site is listed on. The BBB rates and ranks business, and there are all sorts of other organizations out there to rate any other sites. ..
And, then I would make it a point to educate masses. . .
