Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
There's a domain that I've had for about 4 years now that I've never really done much with - I finally wanted to use it for my primary email.
So I set up my email, got that all working, and built one page.
There's no point to this page other than to catch people who are either (a) randomly typing the domain name in, or (b) getting emails from me and wanting to check out what my domain is.
So I put up 2 images - One big image that is just image mapped to death and one small image that includes an email address. No text at all on the page whatsoever. A non-helpful page title. No meta.
I love this page. I made it for ME. And if you came to the page, you'd say, "Wow, this person doesn't know the FIRST THING about SEO." Then again, you might come to my business page and say the same thing. Hm.
Do you guys ever do something like this or are all of your personal pages optimized to the nines?
BTW, the URL isn't in my profile, but there is enough information in every post of mine to find it. ;)
The proof is in the pudding :)
(going off topic on Erikas post, not a good thing)
The Robots.txt says, in effect, " whoever you are, go away"
And every page has:
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">
So far, I'm in only one search engine -- and it's not Google.
I must try your suggestion -- first page is a blank doorway. that might send that spider away too.
