In 2006, Marshall Breeding wrote an article entitled "How we funneled searchers from Google to our collections by catering to Web crawlers." As we know, not all software/databases can easily be crawled by Internet search engines. Some databases require extra ($) components, while you must kluge a solution for others. In Marshall's article, he talks about the solution they implemented for the Vanderbilt Television News Archive.
Question -- If your repository is not automatically being crawled by the Internet search engines, what solutions have you put in place to expose your content so that it is crawled? Please let us know. This is a topic that projects are talking about...and an area where we could all benefit from what others have done.
