Regarding the meeting discussion on SEO, which AFAIK was rather unresolved.
I use SEO principles every day so have a few thoughts on the matter,
but first I want to clarify what the aims and constraints for openSUSE
I'm not familiar with Wiki software, so my Main question is: With the
wiki, is it possible to add meta title, keywords, description to
individual pages or are you talking about one wiki-wide set of data?
And are there any other serious constraints to optimizing the Wiki?
Secondly, what is the AIM of optimizing the Wiki - and other documents
(news, blogs). Is it -
1) make it easier for people to find the openSUSE pages they are looking for?
(for example, make sure that someone searching for OBS step by step
finds the right documentation)
2) bring more traffic, and generate interest in openSUSE by optimizing
for non-SUSE-specific topics?
(so that someone searching for 'linux virtual server' finds an openSUSE page)
Of course both are possible!
I've sent this query to both wiki and marketing lists, as SEO can be
considered when writing ANY documentation that will be published. It
is not the mysterious black art that expensive webpreneurs would like
you to think it is.
It is a very simple, clear and easy process. Obviously for best
results a bit of time needs to be invested, but even for a quick blog
post it's possible to spend a few moments considering the SEO.
I'll have some more detail on that soon, but first I'd like to hear
what you are hoping to get out of the SEO process, how you see it
fitting with our aims. World domination is certainly an option....
