SEO is critical to the success of most web projects. Thanks to the hard work of the core team and module developers, Drupal 8 can be excellent for SEO but, it needs some help. A lot has changed from the previous version in both interface - some functions have been moved into core and some require add-on modules. Not only that, the search engines are constantly updating their algorithms and as Drupalers, we need to adjust our strategies accordingly.
There are some essential D8 modules that, if installed and configured properly, will help your website do better in Google.
In this session we’ll go through the 12 essential modules that you need to properly Search Engine Optimize your Drupal 8 website. We’ll boot up a live Drupal 8 instance and examine: SEO Checklist, Pathauto, Redirect, Metatag, XML Sitemap, Alternate hreflang, Google Analytics, Search 404, Yoast, RDF UI, W3C Validator, Sitemap, Breadcrumbs, Linkit, D8 Editor Advanced link, and - time permitting - a few others.
We’ll go quick but I’ll provide a list and some take home materials.
To celebrate the release of Ben’s new book titled Drupal 8 SEO, attendees of this session will receive a free electronic copy.
