Drupal SEO Checklist Module: How to Download and Install

The following blog post is a short taste of my book, Drupal 6 Search Engine Optimization, which is now available through Packt Publishing. Drupal is an exceptional content management system and has a variety of useful modules that will help your site succeed. Once you have Drupal installed and set up for your new Drupal website, follow these instructions to download and install the Drupal SEO Checklist module.

1. Download the SEO Checklist module from here and install it just like you would a regular Drupal module by placing the extracted folder into the sites/all/modules directory.

2. Once you have installed the module, go to your admin screen and click on Administer | Site configuration | SEO Checklist link. You should be able to see the SEO Checklist admin page screen.

3. Figure out which modules you already have installed by clicking on the Check for already Installed Modules button. It will automatically have checked off any modules already installed.

4. Go through each section of the SEO Checklist admin page installing each module or completing each task. Be sure to check off each item as you go and click the Save button.

While the Drupal SEO Checklist module is not required for a successful SEO campaign, it is extremely helpful by saving you hours of research and hunting down modules you need for proper SEO.
