    Signature

This map comes from an atlas which was once in the library of the renowned carto-bibliographer Sir Herbert George Fordham (1854 - 1929). He was the first to attempt the systematic cataloguing of the maps of an English county. Born on 9th May 1854 at Odsey, a manor on the borders of Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire sold to the Fordham family in 1793 by the 5th Duke of Devonshire. The flyleaf of the atlas was signed H.George Fordham, Odsey, 1925. Further reading: Map Collectors' Circle No. 51: Sir H.George Fordham Carto-bibliographer by J. M. Henshall.

The atlas was later in the library of Professor Eva Germaine Remington Taylor (1879 - 1966) Distinguished geographer. Presented after her death to Birbeck College, University of London. Sold by their order at Sotheby's, London and purchased by Richard Nicholson

Not checked by SEO Rx, but also recommended


The following items cannot be checked automatically by SEO Rx, and may only be applicable after your website has been published online. However it may still be wise to check and action the following if you want to improve your SEO even further:

  • When duplicating pages, you should take care to make sure each page has a unique page title and description.
  • Your website footer displays a copyright stamp for this year (e.g. © Copyright 1901). This can be changed in the RapidWeaver footer settings.
  • Your robots.txt file does not block access to a page.
  • Optionally display the date the page was last updated. Or at the very least, regularly update your content. Updated content is deemed as one of the best indicators of an active website that is of greater relevance to what someone might be searching for.
  • Make it easy for your website users to share or bookmark the current page with their favourite social networking or bookmarking services. There are different ways to accomplish this, including free 'share this' buttons added to your website or dedicated social media stacks for RapidWeaver. Promoting your website to a wider audience improves its exposure.
  • Ensure webpages are optimised for speed and load quickly, preferably in less than 3 seconds for an average page. Free tools like YSlow can evaluate your page loading speed and provide information on how to improve speed, like consolidating CSS / Javascript files and enabling GZIP compression on your web server.
  • Make sure your contact details are correct and easily accessible from any page; either a link to your main contact page or a link for people to email you directly. Obfuscated email links are fine to use, if you want to reduce spam.
  • Publish quality content. Your content should always be relevant and presented tidily with consistent styling. Avoid grammar or spelling errors.
  • Improve the richness of links. Instead of generic links or buttons that say 'read more' (which lack any search engine value) include keywords with mention of special pages, products or services.
  • If your website is for a business with a physical location, list it on search engines like Google (search Google My Business). Your opening hours will then get displayed in Google search results, together with its map location, photo's, reviews and the website link.
  • Link to any social media platforms you're a member of; like Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, YouTube, Twitter, Tumblr etc. A more 'networked' website has greater prominence.
  • Switch-on the option in the RapidWeaver site setup window to generate an XML sitemap. This gives search engines a complete list of all your website pages. You can manually submit a sitemap for a new website to most of the major search engines, to ensure it gets indexed quicker.
  • Avoid spamming other websites with links to your website. A couple of links used in moderation from relevant websites is all that's required.

When to block search engines

The following cases are some examples when it is recommended (and acceptable) to block search engines from indexing a page:

  • Privacy pages. Pages which contain personal information that you don't wish to share online.
  • Shopping cart pages. Pages where a user can view their shopping cart doesn't contain any SEO value and should be excluded from search results.
  • Checkout pages. Similar to shopping cart pages, pages related to checkout process should be excluded from search engines.
