Benefits of Our Data
We scrape and show the contents of the GEO Tag 'placename' of a page. If there is more than one of these, we take the first one we find which is typically that closest to the top of the page.
Although not the most important factor to consider on a site; every little can help and if you’re struggling for tweaks to give you an edge over your competitors, this can help.
We identify the GEO Placename tag on each page.
If a page contains the meta tag geo.placename then we extract the contents of this tag, in the example code below, you can see the text highlighted in red.
<meta name="geo.placename" content="London" />
This red text “London” in the above example is what we extract from the crawled webpage and show in the field.
The options for the fields are as follows:
This is the text we identified in the field
There is a tag, but the txt is missing
When there Is no GEO tag for this
When there is a tag, but the tag is incorrectly implemented or broken
This is a less common tag nowadays, but some sites still use GEO meta tags to delineate locations, if you’re auditing a site with these tags, you will want to scrape all the GEO tag data.
Example 1: Auditing GEO Meta Tags
If for any reason you are auditing a site you may want to make the recommendation to remove this tag, replace it or amend it. We scrape the data for each page with this tag so that you can perform this analysis.
Example 2: Ensure that the GEO Placename are correct
