    SEO Question - Issue with keywords

    Hi,

    I have recently made a website for a restaurant, which consists of 3 pages (home, menu and 'find us' pages).

    The issue I have is that when Google is crawling my site, it is looking through the 100+ item food menu, and using these words as keywords. e.g. Webmaster Tools is showing that the keyword with most significance is 'Fried' followed by 'Chicken' in second place, and a load of other food items going down the list.

    What is the best way to tackle this? I was considering adding the 'menu' and 'find us' pages to a robots.txt file so that only the homepage would be indexed, but wasn't sure if there would be a better method?

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    robots.txt is the answer.
    you can either allow google to index a document or not. you can't exclude only part of document (unless that part is added by javascript)

    Thanks Patryk, I have added a robots.txt file to exclude the menu page, will have to wait and see if it works!

    workaround: you can make portion of page in separate html file, block it in robors.txt and then put that "hidden" document in iframe.

    Robot.txt its the best option for ignoring specified files or directories when site is crawling.
