Adding yourself to GeoURL

  1. What are the coordinates I should use? If the page is about you (such as your home page), the coordinates should be for your location. If the page is about some physical place, the coordinates should reflect that location. The location of your server itself is probably not that interesting.

  2. Find your location. I've constructed a list of resources to help you.

    Coordinates are in the form of a latitude and longitude, separated by a comma, for example: 47.98481,-71.42124. Western hemisphere longitudes and Southern hemisphere latitudes are negative.

    Remeber that minutes and seconds are in 60ths, so if something is X degrees, Y minutes, and Z seconds, the decimal equivalent is X + Y/60 + Z/3600.

  3. Add the following meta tags to the <head> section of your web page:

    <meta name="ICBM" content="XX.XXXXX, XX.XXXXX">
    <meta name="DC.title" content="THE NAME OF YOUR SITE">

    See our notes for help with adding these tags to a blog content management system such as Radio or Livejournal.

    Note: If your site uses frames, you must add the meta tags to your top-level page which contains the <frameset> -- we will not check the contents of your frames.

    We'll also index Geo Tags-style "geo.position" meta tag as per their documentation.
