    Does the Google crawler read POIs?

    Any recommendations for MapPress SEO?



    Well… if your POIs are stored as separate posts then the posts will get crawled like any other post.

    If your POIs are all located on a single map, then they’ll be output as javascript which, I think, is usually ignored.

    If you’re doing an index site – say a local directory of restaurants – then I strongly recommend you an individual post for each POI. For example, create a post for each restaurant (preferably using a custom post type ‘restaurant’). In each post, insert a map in each post with just that post’s location. Then use a mashup to display the posts together on a single map.

    By using separate posts you can take advantage of all of the WordPress post features: categories, tags, a rich text editor – and SEO.
