Dear All,
I have been working in Drupal for the past many months and i am very much fascinated about it.Thanks to large community of Drupal
I am a post graduate student and i have to do a final project as a degree requirement, i have several option for doing my project,
But since my interest lies in Drupal and SEO and open source so i wanted to do something in this field only. My project will continue for 2 semester so i want to do something challenging and doable.
I'll be highly greatfull if u could suggest me any project which i can do on top of drupal or somethng related to Drupal and SEO.

thanks,
sanjay

Drupal SEO project idea

s1l's picture

Hi Sanjay,
Sounds like an exciting time for you!
I hope we Drupallers can help you with a couple of ideas.

the first thing that comes to mind is this:

Food Recipe SEO for Food related sites 'the Drupal way'
http://www.google.com/landing/recipes/
There currently is no flexible solution for Drupal sites that want to get their Food Recipes into search engines as rich snippet.
There is a Recipe module, but it is built for a very narrow set of usecases.
There is a need for a more flexible solution applying 'latest' Drupal techniques like Features, Fields, Microdata module and Entity (reference) and such. (and Search API for search within Drupal)

I've written a blogpost about that ages ago:
http://s1l.org/cooking-recipes-drupal-7
Some of it is outdated, some of it still pretty current - the key is: Food Recipes should be setup as flexible Features and should still be able to deliver great SEO metadata results.

Most setups will probably require a 'ingredient' content type and a 'recipe' content type that entity reference each other. Combining that with the amount of 'ingredient' someone needs for a food recipe and putting that into rich recipe snippet information for search engines can be a neat SEO challenge.

the Microdata project

Hi Sanjay,

For Recipe SEO (and other interesting Microdata based SEO issues) have a look at this project:
http://drupal.org/project/microdata
and this page basically lists a 'todo' list that basically 'search engine optimizes' the big Drupal contrib modules: http://drupal.org/node/1196440
They seem interesting issues to solve as they help a wide range of Drupal SEO cases.

For Food Recipes these are probably most important: Fivestar, Field Collection module and Entity reference module.
(in the case where one wants to have both Recipe and ingredients as separate content types)
