Welcome to the Drupal Chicago Meetup! All are welcome. This month Jim will revisit his session, Holistic SEO and Drupal, updated for 2018. Come join us and bring your favorite SEO and Drupal knowledge and share.

Holistic SEO is a term used to describe a process in which content, marketing, technical SEO, performance, security, user experience and user intent come together to create an ideal URL on the internet, about a certain topic.

Search algorithms are rapidly changing. With the increased use of machine learning by search engines, ranking factors are evolving from keywords and links to more complex ideas like User Intent, Industry Relevance, and Topic.

By taking a holistic approach to SEO, developers can define best practices that ultimately benefits the site and user instead of chasing today's results. The presentation will go into depth on how to use the Drupal 8 platform to build sites that empower content creators to build optimal pages.

We will review:
• The current scale of search, the most common ranking factors, and how to keep up to date.
• An overview of Content, Topic, and Keyword research tools
• An overview of technical SEO best practices in Drupal 8
• An overview of development and testing tools for SEO

Learning Objectives & Outcomes:
Attendees will come away learning common search engine ranking factors, best practices for technical SEO using Drupal, and ideas on how to guide and empower their administrators to create the best content to achieve their goals.
