Getting your website built to look the way you want is important, but what good does it do if no one can find your site from Google?

However, it is best to be aware of the SEO impact of design and development choices from the beginning of a project in order to save time and money in the long run.
When I build sites I always keep search engine optimization in mind, and I do my best to make clients aware of the common pitfalls which can destroy your site ranking.
Building inbound links is widely known by SEO experts to be the most crucial factor in Search Engine Optimization. There are a lot of different ways to generate inbound links for your site.

The longer I have my mac the more things I find that drastically simplify my life as a Drupal developer. Now for fairness sake I should admit that there are still some things about mac that annoy me (namely Finder which is in many ways inferior to the windows explorer), but that is another story all together. Drush, the command line tool for Drupal is one of those many little things that make me very happy to have broken free from the slimy grasp of Bill Gates and his minions.
