Google indexes the complete page. This contains a lot of 'junk': left bar, tagme tags, "this topic has been moved", etc. We can change the behaviour of indexing by adding Google specific tags:
See: Google Applicance - googleoff / googleon Tags
The only thing that needs to be indexed is the html header (title, meta) and the topic text. So:
html start <!--googleoff: all--> start of body <!--googleon: all> start of TEXT <!--googleoff: all--> rest of body <!--googleon: all> rest of html
The same method should be placed around the tagme call:
<!--googleoff: all--> TAGME <!--googleon: all>

Although useful for public sites, I think it does not fit the TWiki mission. Instead of adding this to the distribution, how about documenting this in the supplemental docs?
- 14 Feb 2007
Yes, but why shouldn't we offer a package that is ready for the web?
- 14 Feb 2007
Yes, that makes sense. We need to build up the infrastructure to easily generate more than one TWiki package, such as one for public sites that has a different registration form, different set of plugins (such as preinstalled BlackListPlugin
), and this Google specific stuff.

The suggested solution only works for Google Appliance; results for Google web search are mixed. We have a different working solution for TagMePlugin.
