Grant Kruger wrote on mmt.org that his website would skip upgrading to Drupal 7, and would instead jump straight from Drupal 6 to Drupal 8. While it might work for some companies, it's not something we'd recommend for most organizations. Here's why.
As you may know, I am the maintainer of the popular Drupal SEO Checklist module. Many people for the last year or so have been asking when I'll update it for Drupal 7 SEO. My answer was - and still is - "when the modules that make SEO possible on Drupal 7 are relatively available and ready".
