Most repository queries and referrals come from google scholar and google
users. So it is crucial to get repository contents well indexed by google.

Here are some tips from Google Scholar's Anurag Acharya:

lar.pdf

This is a good occasion to repeat also an important fact about Open Access
Repositories:

OA Repositories' problem is not lack of searchability or of indexability or
of search/index tools and services.

Their problem is *lack of OA content.*

The cure is *effective OA mandates* -- not waiting for better search/index
tools.
