My Latest Column for Moz
In my latest column for the blog, I help sites deal with a classic SEO problem: Navigation schemes that are good for users but may create problems with search engines.

Please be mindful with noindex directives and remember that most search engines will honour it, even if it's in the BODY element.
Check your includes, make sure you're not injecting in the DOM a noindex directive! I found the easiest way to do this is with the Chrome Dev tools: open it up on the page you want to check, hit Ctrl+F (or Cmd+F for those who like fruity flavours), and then type noindex. Nothing found? Great!
If you find something like this:
<meta name="robots" value="noindex" />
Probably not so great. Maybe fix?
