Benefits of Our Data
This is part of a suite of GEO Meta Tags that help to indicate to search engines what physical location a page is targeting. We scrape this data for you to analyse.
We scrape and show the contents of the GEO Tag 'region' of each page.
If a page contains the meta tag geo.region then we extract the contents of this tag, in the example code below, you can see the text highlighted in red.
<meta name="geo.region" content="GB" />
This red text “GB” in the above example is what we extract from the crawled webpage and show in the field.
If this meta tag is not used, the field will be blank. If the tag is used but does not contain any contents, the field will show . We show this data regardless of if the code is in the wrong place or there are other issues that may prevent the tags from working as intended / at all.
If this geo tag is not used, the field will be blank. If the tag is used but does not contain any contents, the field will show . We show this data regardless of if the code is in the wrong place or there are other issues that may prevent the tags from working as intended / at all.
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
The text returned, where a tag is identified, will be in a country code format like “GB” for Great Britain, for example.
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 Regions are correct
Because the GEO Region tag is quite antiquated now, there is a good chance a site will not have updated it in some time. You can use our website crawler to collect the tag data to ensure that it is still correct.
