With the increasing importance that algorithms play in determining the visibility of digital content, ensuring that your research can compete in the attention economy is essential to increasing its impact. In this workshop, we will examine the factors that contribute to relevance weighting in search engines and compare known differences between major algorithms. We will also look at several strategies for influencing these rankings by optimizing your PDFs and websites for the bots that map the web. Lastly, participants will be introduced to a toolkit of web applications that will help increase the visibility of their academic web footprint.

Presenter: Adrian J. Ebsary, Online Community Specialist, University of Ottawa

Avec l'augmentation de l’importance du rôle des algorithmes dans la détermination de la visibilité du contenu numérique, il est essentiel d’augmenter leurs impacts pour s’assurer que vos recherches puissent compétitionner dans l’univers de l’économie de l’attention. Dans cet atelier, nous examinerons les facteurs contribuant à ce que vos articles apparaissent sur les moteurs de recherches et comparerons les différences majeures entre les différents algorithmes. Entre autres, nous explorerons plusieurs stratégies pour influencer ces classements en optimisant vos PDF et sites web pour les robots qui tracent le web. De plus, les participants seront introduits à une boîte à outils d’applications web qui les aideront à augmenter leur visibilité  ainsi que leur empreinte universitaire sur le web.
