Drupal SEO Basics: A Drupaler's Guide to the SEO Galaxy
In case you've been living in a cave (or maybe a Vogon ship's cabin) the last few years, SEO stands for "Search Engine Optimization." Improving your website's SEO can translate into more visitors, better conversions, more sales, etc. This is why people care about it and why you should, too.
When properly configured, Drupal is a very SEO-friendly web framework. The trick is to know which Drupal SEO modules you need to install and how to optimally configure them.
This session will go over the standard modules used for better search engine optimization in Drupal 6 and 7 including:
- SEO Checklist
- Path & Pathauto
- Page Title
- Nodewords, Metatags & Metatags Quick
- Path Redirect & Redirect
- Site Verify
- XML Sitemap
Don't know what SEO is? Don't panic! We'll cover that too.
