Acquia Podcast 29: Ben Finklea on SEO in Drupal

One of the strong points of Drupal is its built in search engine optimization capabilities right out of the box. Ben Finklea is the founder and CEO of Volacci, a firm that specializes in SEO for Drupal sites, and in this episode we talk about SEO in Drupal, the SEO Checklist module, the status of the Drupal 7 version of his book on SEO in Drupal, and some upcoming SEO training Volacci is doing with Acquia.

Around 8:00, you talk about linking to the list of SEO modules that Ben maintains. Could you add that list?

Thanks!

Good catch. I added the link to the Volacci blog post that has the link to the SEO module availability matrix to the show notes above.

I think I got stuck in a spamfilter at the Volacci blog so I'll post it here.
People that want to optimize SEO in terms of metadata, have a look at these projects:

Also check out the SEO Compliance module for Drupal, and its worth running some <a href="http://igniteresearch.ne t">seo software</a> to check for any possible crawl errors.
