Every Halloween (starting last year) I like to post a blog that combines the holiday with what I love best: Drupal.
Over the past several Fridays, I have been publishing Drupal SEO 'how-to' posts instead of the Drupal SEO news some of you love and crave. Well, there have been a few major developments within the community that I cannot go without sharing; So much so that I came here today to inform rather than drop a few nuggets of Drupal 'how-to' knowledge on you.
So join me after the jump and catch up on a few news-worthy conversations buzzing around the Drupal community. You can even get involved. Gotta love Drupal!

When it comes to tracking data on your Drupal site, there are dozens of analytics packages you can choose from... but it sure is hard to beat Google Analytics. It’s free, easy to install, quick to get started, and is very user-friendly with easy-to-read charts and graphs. And yet, it includes robust features that show you advanced segmentation, customizable reporting, and industry benchmarking.

In a blog post last month, I showed you how to configure the Meta tags module for Drupal SEO - where we walked through how to download and configure the Meta tags module properly. Now we are ready to specify meta tags for all the content that you currently have or will be creating. There are three ways to specify content with meta tags: taxonomy, node, and views. Let’s walk through all three types and how to configure each one.

Which address would you rather read: "30.2746698,-97.7387235,935" or "Texas Capital Building 1100 Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78701"? Both get you to the same place, but one better describes what and where the place is. Find out how to make sure your URLs do something similar.

With DrupalCon Copenhagen events unofficially launching this weekend, and the conference itself gets kick-started on Monday, most American Drupalistas are packing their bags and hitting the airport this weekend to travel.
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!
I have never once been tempted to steal hood ornaments, but this one sure does give rise to the nerd in me. How awesome would it be to have the hood ornament above, accompanied by a horn that blasted "these aren't the droids we're looking for" when some blue-tooth-wearing crazy driver cuts you off in rush hour traffic! But I digress.
DrupalCon Copenhagen will be here before you know it, so get your tickets if you haven't already. Rumor has it the price may go up soon... Please read on for more in This Week in Drupal SEO News.
As you can see from the photo above, Volacci's DrupliPet found itself amongst a wide array of friends this week. Our eccentric and often times culturally-obscure Content Manager babysat DrupliPet on his desk, and exposed him to a slew of vinyl characters, action figures, and PEZ dispensers. Let's just say we lost a week of training with the DrupliPet... but I digress.
The Drupal community has certainly been busy this week: Drupal's iPhone App was released, Drupad, Drupal Gardens was released in open beta, and Dries gave an intriguing interview at the Open Source Convention in Portland, with remarks concerning the Drupal 7 beta and full releases. Join me after the jump for: This Week in Drupal SEO News.
Do you want to know why there is a lion in that photo? So do I. Maybe he is earning money to buy a ticket to DrupalCon Copenhagen. If I was a lion, that’s probably what I would do. Or I would just walk in. Because I’m a lion. What are you going to do, ask to see my badge?! I would probably eat your computer first. Then chew up your power cord so you had to rush to an Apple store. But I digress. (Did I ever progress?)
Join me after the jump for DrupalCon Copenhagen keynote speakers, the DrupalCamps Organizer Survey Results and Google’s new App Inventor.
