Major players (Google, Bing, Yandex) offer documentation to help webmasters and authors. I’d be interested in seeing some for Mojeek.
A lot of advice seems to revolve around optimizing rankings, but this has the toxic side-effect of polluting SERPs with SEO spam. I’m more interested in advice concerning compatibility. Some things I’d to know:
<noscript>content show up in the snippets. I personally dislike JS so I don’t have a problem with this, but I don’t speak for other users who probably feel differently.
- Other topic for structured data
- How does Mojeek select favicons?
- Does Mojeek respect
- Are there any extensions to the
robots.txtand the Sitemap protocol that Mojeek uses?
- What markups/schemas does Mojeek support besides semantic HTML/XHTML and the Sitemap XML format? (e.g. RSS, Atom, HTML Sitemap, etc).
Part of my reason for asking: I’m writing a follow-up to my search-engines reference containing advice for authors to ensure compatibility with various agents, including but not limited to a diverse array of search engine crawlers/parsers. It’ll have information concerning the structured data formats with the widest support, the implications of using JS, etc.
