There was a twitter contest this morning to see if anyone could accurately guess who the keynote speaker would be at this years Day of DotNetNuke Orlando event. Originally, a DotNetNuke shirt was offered as a prize for the right guess. There were plenty of guesses, but no one hit the target. Next, the deal was sweetened with a DNN boomerang. Still, no one guessed the right person – but there certainly were plenty of entertaining guesses! Finally, the stakes were raised to include not just a DNN t-shirt and boomerang, but also a frisbee. At the time of this writing, the keynote speaker was not guessed, so no one gets the swag. That shouldn’t prevent you from knowing who the speaker is though!
The Widget Suite for DotNetNuke launched in late November of 2010 with a very simple purpose. I wanted to document a few of the widgets I had created for technical presentations, and make them easy for others to use. As with any other open source project that sees a little success, I had no idea how popular it would become – nowhere near as successful and DNN mind you – but unexpected just the same.
This isn’t really a “whitepaper” in the literal sense, but rather a cheat sheet to help you identify all of the areas in DotNetNuke that you can take advantage of in order to effective leverage your Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategies. Nearly all of these SEO settings and features have been around for a long time too.
Search Engine Optimization is simply a term used to describe the process of constantly optimizing your website to be indexed easier and faster – and better indexed than competitive websites. The exact methods and techniques you use will sometimes change from week to week, but the tools used to employ your strategy generally remains the same.
If your website is publicly visible, and if it has ANYTHING to do with your business making money – SEO SHOULD BE IMPORTANT TO YOU. Most companies that are serious about this have one or more people on-staff or contracted full time to get the most out of SEO.
