PageRank META Tag In Real Life Use

Jul 15, 2010 - 8:35 am 10 by

You need a laugh, don't you? Well, I got one for you.

Spotted via a Google Webmaster Help thread, one webmaster is asking why his site "went to spam and not showing and ranking." The funny part is not the poor English or the fact that his site is indexed, but rather a look at his meta tags.

Here is a look at some, I repeat, not all but some of the meta tags on this site:

<meta name="abstract" content="AM Packers and Movers Domestic Relocation Pune, Residential Relocation services, Corporate Relocation" /> <meta name="author" content="" /> <meta name="alexa" content="100"></meta> <meta name="googlebot" content="noodp" /> <meta name="pagerank™" content="10"></meta> <meta name="revisit" content="2 days"></meta> <meta name="revisit-after" content="2 days"></meta> <meta name="robots" content="all, index, follow"></meta> <meta name="distribution" content="global" /> <meta name="rating" content="general" /> <meta name="resourse-type" content="documents" /> <meta name="serps" content="1, 2, 3, 10, 11, ATF"></meta> <meta name="subject" content="A M Packers and Movers - Trusted name in Packing and Moving Industry, offers Best Packers and movers in pune, Car Transportation, provides all transport and relocation services in all the Major Cites of India."></meta> <meta name="relevance" content="high" /> <meta name="document-classification" content="Best Packers and Movers Pune, Pakcers and Movers, Relocation Services for Household Goods, Office & Commercial Shifting Services, Car Movers or Transportation Services." />

Yea a meta tag for <meta name="pagerank™" content="10"></meta>

This was actually made fun of in a 2006 WebmasterWorld thread. But I haven't seen it since.

Forum discussion at Google Webmaster Help and hat tip to Colin McDermott.
