This Week in Drupal SEO News: Drupal 7 Documentation Team Needs Your Help, Yahoo! and Digg using Drupal, and new Tweet Button

August is always an exciting time of year. School gets back in session, last summer vacations and road trips are usually squeezed in, and the international DrupalCon takes the stage. This year its in Denmark: DrupalCon Copenhagen. If you don't have tickets, you better get them very soon! Because it's next weekend... see ya'll there!

Join me after the jump for information on how you can help Drupal 7.0 release with stronger documentation. You can also learn who is using Drupal for their sweet sites, and how to get a 'Tweet Button' on your site.


Drupal 7 Docs Needs Your Help!

Drupal 7.0 is very close to release, but there are still a few critical bugs to flush out. The Drupal 7 Documentation Team wants to ensure that Drupal 7 documentation is better than good, so they have reached out and asked for your help.

Twitter’s Tweet Button is Launched

This may not be earth-shattering news to you, but it has its own special place in my heart. Twitter is finally launching its official Tweet Button for sharing articles and counting how many times the URL is shared. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Customize Your Button.

Step 2: Recommend People to Follow.

Step 3: Preview Your Button, Get Your Code.

If you want to add this button to your site, Go to Twitter’s Tweet Button page here.

Google Getting Sued by Oracle over Android

Last year, Oracle bought Sun Microsystems and Java. In a statement today, Oracle stated that Google “knowingly, directly, and repeatedly infringed Oracle’s Java-related intellectual property.”

The statement goes on to claim that the Android used Java-based framework that infringes on Oracle’s patents. In addition to these patent violations, Oracle is also claiming copyright infringement of Java’s code. If you would like to review the documents filed, check them out here.
