googleoff index googleon index

Interesting thing I found today from HTML source:

<– googleoff: index –>
<– googleon: index –>

What’s the significance? Does this affect how google indexes the site, or is it purely for the site developer?

  1. I found this same tag on nbc.com

    googleoff: all
    and
    googleon: all

    What is this??

  2. This code is used to tell the google search engine to start or stop indexing a bit of code on a page. The result is better search indexing for a site.

  3. By the seems of it, they have dymanic support for the robot meta tag. eg.

    so if your page is set by the above tag and you want google not to index the links of a certain section of html. You would write…

    aejw.com

    You on again to restore the google bot to its previous state

  4. Yes, it’s just for the Google search appliance that you install as your own internal site search. It’s ignored by big Momma Google.
