CMS Expos Chicago: Drupal SEO and Promotion Techniques

Are you attending the CMS Expo Learning Conference this year in Chicago, May 3-5th? If you are, you don’t want to miss this session!

From 1:00 - 2:30 PM on Wednesday, May 5, I will be teaching Drupal SEO and Promotion Techniques in the Drupal Core CMS training track. My presentation is targeted towards administrators, content creation, businesspeople, and developers. So, basically anyone who is attending.

Here is a quick overview from my session page:

Drupal's built-in features and third-party plugin modules provide a host of ways to improve your site's performance with search engines.

Harnessing those tools -- and keeping users engaged once they arrive-- still takes careful planning. We'll explore the specific tools and techniques used by successful Drupal sites to improve their search engine placement and visitor retention.

This is a session for Intermediate Drupal Users, so it is recommended that you have some working knowledge of Drupal if you plan on attending. To get caught up with a recommended prerequisite, you can attend the Drupal Kickstart Program on Monday, May 3rd.
