Humans.txt – We Are Humans!

Humans.txt – We Are Humans!

Some of you may be familiar with the Robots.txt used by Search Engines to indicate what parts of a site they may trawl. Humans.txt or is a new initiative aimed at exposing the human beings behind a web dev, not the clients, not the bosses or account directors, the real people – the Designers, Developers and SEOs.

How it Works

You add a simple humans.txt file to the root of any site you create or own, check out this sites and my generic humans.txt or head on over and checkout then you add a simple reference to this in you header as you would normally if you were adding the author meta tag;

<link type="text/plain" rel="author" href="" />

Once that is done you can submit your site here; and you are all done. I really like this new concept oh and its a free backlink from a site with rising authority 🙂

Checkout all the Irish listings here; you should spot a few of mine, let’s see if we can’t get some more Irish devs and designers listed here.
