This helps the search engine identify how close you are to a customer and give proper mileage. If you are retail establishment such as a store or restaurant, doing this can actually help you show up on GPS device searches as well.  Take a look at GeoURL in

First you need to identify where you are. If your website is about your business you will need the coordinates for your business location.

You can go to http://www.mygeoposition.com/ to not only get your coordinates for your tag but to generate your tags as well.

and enter your/company  address  to generate your geo metadata including  latitude and longitude information.

I have made up an address and entered it in to the Geo Data Generator  Generator and it actually gave me the tags that I need to use with the GPS coordinates for my business.

GPS coordinates are in the form f latitude and longitude, separated by a comma. Remember 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.

Add  following Geo Position  Meta tags to the <head> section of your web page.

<meta name=”geo.placename” content=”Munirka, New Delhi, Delhi, India” />
<meta name=”geo.position” content=”28.554601;77.172961″ />
<meta name=”geo.region” content=”IN-Delhi” />

<meta name=”ICBM” content=”28.554601, 77.172961″ />

<meta name=”DC.title” content=”Delhi Excavating Contractors”>

One Additional Tag  i have added here:

<meta name=”DC.title” content=”The name of your website”>

<meta name=”DC.title” content=”Delhi Excavating Contractors”>

my generated geo metadata

Note: If your site use frames, you must add the Meta tags to your Top-level page which contains the <frameset> tag.

We will also index http://www.geotags.com style”geo position” Meta tag as per their documentation at: http://geotags.com/geobot/add-tags.html

The reason it is called the x is that this was actually used for generating geographically-correct maps. This known as a company’s ICBM address or missile, and some people include it in their sig block with that name.
