Google To Create A New Meta Tag

Google, one of the most popular search engines in the world hqs recently announced that it will add an ¨Unavailable After¨ meta tag. The "unavailable_after" tag will allow you to tell Google when Googlebot should no longer crawl that page. Jill explains that this tag comes in handy when you have a limited time offer promotional page, and on this page, the promotion will expire on a specific date. By using the "unavailable_after" tag, you can tell Google that they should not crawl this page, after the promotion expires. There are several practical scenarios for this tag. If you have a web page that you wish to have visited by the public for a limited time, this new meta tag would be great for your site. Web site owners may not want visitors on certain pages after a certain date. Therefore this tag will most likely make sure that your special page is not accessed via the search engines after the specified date.
