The one thing that makes Drupal so powerful – its flexibility – is a blessing and a curse. While it allows Drupal to excel at all things “open source”, it can also be overwhelming to configure correctly for an optimal relationship with the search engines. Queue Volacci’s Drupal Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Hands-On Training! On Sunday, April 18th, at DrupalCon’s Pre-Conference training, Volacci is giving an all-day, hands-on professional training course on Drupal SEO that will help you amp up your Drupal knowledge all the way to 11! From Drupal neophyte to ninja, there is something for everyone at Drupal SEO Hands-On Training by Volacci. Our training begins with Drupal SEO basics and works through to some advanced SEO techniques that give your Drupal website a clear advantage. Here is a quick preview of our entire training session:
It’s been an exhilarating week in Austin, with tons of news, ideas, startups, and friendly competition fueling the vibe around town. It’s funny to watch people get a little crazy and let loose at SXSWi. They get to Austin, the infamously ‘weird’ city of the South, and boy do some people fly the freak flag! In all seriousness, it is the kind of enthusiasm I like to see, as we all do, in the tech culture and community. Weird is just another word for creative.
It’s a busy week here in Austin as techno-geeks, Drupalistas, and interactive industry leaders descend upon the Live Music Capitol of the World for the first leg of the SXSW Festival: SXSW Interactive (SXSWi). Starting today and running through Tuesday, March 16th, the best new websites, video games, and startup ideas will be networked and showcased throughout the international interactive community via panels, awards, the trade show, parties, and much more. If you’ve never been to SXSWi, or even the Film and Music portion, you are missing out on the most engaging, inspirational, and exhilarating experiences of a lifetime! I hope, though, that you are reading this on a macbook with your morning coffee, waiting for your first SXSWi session to start. So enough with all the creativity radiating from downtown Austin, let’s talk about some news in the Drupal SEO circles that may perk your interest.
This week I changed my focus with the Volacci SEO blog: fewer posts, deeper thoughts. While there will now be only three posts a week (M/W/F), the posts will be longer, more insightful, and, hopefully, more valuable to you.
With so much news occurring in and around both the Drupal and SEO communities every day, I want to bring both worlds together in a verbal Venn diagram of sorts each Friday for you to easily digest. And I will call this informational hybrid: This week in Drupal SEO News.
