Adding yourself to GeoURL

These are the instruction on how to geolocate your blog from Mikel Maron's "Brain Off": What are the coordinates I should use? If the page is about you (such as your home page), the coordinates should be for your location. If the page is about some physical place, the coordinates should reflect that location. The location of your server itself is probably not that interesting. Find your location. I've constructed a list of resources to help you. Coordinates are in the form of a latitude and longitude, separated by a comma, for example: 47.98481,-71.42124. Western hemisphere longitudes and Southern hemisphere latitudes are negative. Remeber that minutes and seconds are in 60ths, so if something is X degrees, Y minutes, and Z seconds, the decimal equivalent is X + Y/60 + Z/3600. Add the following meta tags to the section of your web page: See our notes for help with adding these tags to a blog content management system such as Radio or Livejournal. Note: If your site uses frames, you must add the meta tags to your top-level page which contains the -- we will not check the contents of your frames. We'll also index Geo Tags-style "geo.position" meta tag as per their documentation. Tell the GeoURL server your page needs to be indexed. Use the ping form to tell us that your page has been updated. In a few minutes we'll index your page. It's OK to ping us several times. Tell others. GeoURL will become more useful as the database grows in size. Tell others about GeoURL by linking to us.
