Search Engine Optimization for Drupal

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? When it comes to search engine optimization (SEO), Drupal is one of the best systems to work with. 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.

A good example of a design mistake that can negatively impact your SEO is the use of a flash or image based splash page. This hurts your ranking with Google and most search engines because the home page is the most important page of your site used in their ranking algorithms. In order to maximize your site’s visibility you have to make sure that text containing your target key words is used in your home page. Even if your splash page is intended to show only on the entry of the site it is counted as the home page by search engines.

I offer search engine optimization for sites that I build for new clients as well as for existing sites. This involves the optimization of images, urls, menu systems, meta tags and content layout to achieve the most effect for your targeted key words. Pricing is calculated on a per site basis, as multiple variables influence the total work involved.

I have also developed a system for building high quality inbound links for your site which can be implemented very quickly and which greatly increases your overall ranking with Google and other search engines. Click here for more information on inbound link building for Search Engine Optimization.
