Revisit-After Meta Tag Description and Uses:
The revisit-after meta tag is a meta tag for one specific search engine. It was developed for and supported by the Vancouver Webpages for their local search engine searchBC. This meta tag is not supported by any other search engine.
If your website is located in British Columbia and has a domain of bc.ca (or a .com, .net, and .org domain that is listed by InterNIC as being located in BC), you can use the revisit-after meta tag to tell the searchBC spider when to return. However, even the Vancouver Webpages states that this meta tag is obsolete.
Revisit-After Meta Tag Type:
The Revisit-After meta tag is a named meta tag.
Revisit-After Meta Tag Format:
<meta name="revisit-after" content="90 days">
Revisit-After Meta Tag Recommended Uses:
I recommend that you do not use the revisit-after meta tag. It is not supported by any major search engines (Google, Yahoo!, or Bing) and even the search engine it was developed for considers it obsolete.
The two most effective ways to get search engines to return to your site more frequently are:
- Create more content more frequently — the more often you create new content and update existing content, the more freqently the search engine spiders will return.
- Get more people to link to you — the more people who link to your site, then more the spiders will see it and return to check the content.
