Many search engine recognize tags that instruct them NOT to parse the markup that they enclose.


For example ...


<!-- stop_indexing -->


Here there might be a menu or other markup
that should not be indexed


<!-- start_indexing -->


It ensures that the only words derived from
significant content are indexed ... makes it
more precise for the user, and of course the
index is smaller -- so the whole thing works
faster.
