In fact, there are some good arguments for why you wouldn't want a search engine to index your application content. Think of a membership list, or a company calendar or an email client. Having that content indexed by a search engine could be catastrophic, and probably part of the reason that most search engines don't index dynamic content like that, unless specifically told to do so.
We're investigating ways to make this a little easier to do, but there is something you can do about this now... META Tags. There are two HTML header tags that you can add that help a search engine to figure out what your site/app is all about. They are:
- Description: A brief description of that your page or product is about. It is not uncommon for search engines to display this text as is when showing a listing for your page.
- Keywords: A list of key words and phrases under which a search engine should index your page.
To use these tags, add code that looks like this to the app.HTMLHeader property in the IDE:
<meta name="description" content="My software is the greatest piece of software ever made" />
<meta name="keywords" content="best software, greatest software, awesome software, most-likeable software" />
