Les agences et departements americains devront faire de l'optimisation sur leur site Web

Dans le memorandum du "Initial Implementing Guidance for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009" (PDF) on trouve dans l'appendice 2 ces instructions très "SEO" relatives au pages traitant de la nouvelle transparence exigé pour les agences et départment américains :

Appendix 2 — Agency Recovery Related Web Pages

As discussed in Section 2.12 of this guidance, agencies are not required to develop new websites dedicated to American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Recovery Act) efforts. Each agency should dedicate a page of its primary website to Recovery Act activities (entitled “[Insert Agency Name] Information Related to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009”. Those pages must be consistently identified with a URL that identifies the key entry page to that information with a “recovery” standard extension, i.e. www.agency.gov/recovery. Agencies must create their recovery related page within one week of the issuance of this guidance.

This section outlines specific requirements and best practices for agency recovery related web pages.


In order to facilitate transparency to the public, agencies must follow some minimum common formats for their Recovery Act pages. These include:

  • Page titles. To help the public find the information via commercial and government search engines, agencies should use a consistent page title for their main Recovery Act page (“Agency X Information Related to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009”).
  • Main headings. Each agency’s Recovery Act key entry page should include the following main headings:
  • “Overview of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act).The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) was signed into law by President Obama on February 17th, 2009. It is an unprecedented effort to jumpstart our economy, create or save millions of jobs, and put a down payment on addressing long-neglected challenges so our country can thrive in the 21st century. The Act is an extraordinary response to a crisis unlike any since the Great Depression, and includes measures to modernize our nation's infrastructure, enhance energy independence, expand educational opportunities, preserve and improve affordable health care, provide tax relief, and protect those in greatest need.”
  • “Implementing the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act)”. Agencies should include a short paragraph or bullets giving an overview ofimplementation of the Recovery Act for your agency.
  • “Agency Plans and Reports”. This section should include agency plans and reports as required by this guidance, the Recovery Act, or as determined by the agency. This includes agency and program specific reports required by the Recovery Act.

À noter qu'il n'y a pas actuellement de titre de page utilisant la phrase-clée demandé ici, j'ai hâte de voir à la fin de la semaine prochaine.
