index part of page

Threaded View
Dear people,
Having built a php page, I would like to exclude ads from being indexed.
They belong on the page, but they shouldn't be a search argument.

Could someone please tell me how to exclude snippets of a page from
being indexed?

I know about a rel='nofollow'
is there also something like rel='noindex'?

thanks a lot,

Not for particular subsets of your pages. It this was allowed, it would have
been misused. The most you can do is indicate that a link should not receive
any merit. You could, however, mask parts of your page using JavaScript, but
frankly, it is terrible from a Web standards point-of-view and search
engines might not like it either.

In body:

document.write("\"I only know that I know nothing.\" (Socrates)");
document.write("Google are evil");

Form the advertisments as image banners and do not include an alt tag.

AFAIK it is impossible.

But it doesn't mean you can't get the same effect through other means. For  
example look for thread "Iframe - does google index inframes" earlier this
