Hello all, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I fear the main problem I have is that our business outsourced the building of our website so gaining access to the code is limited to main content regions but I digress, here's my situation.
Our old site did ok on page rank in relation to our main products, I'm really keen to keep this performance when we move fully to the new site.Read more

3-4 Articles rank ok but I have a similar site in the niche with the same amount of articles that gets around 2k visitors a day. Can someone check out the site and see wtf is drawing it back.

I was just checking some search results to one of my own sites, and found that searching drupal content translation spanish (without quotes) currently list two results (different URLs) to the identical content/page, currently shown at positions #7 and #8 on the Google results for me. But, the second URL listed is set up to redirect to the first (and I've checked the redirection is working correctly).
Now, I understood that Google would never do this. Am I just wrong, or have they changed something? Not that I have a problem with the page being listed twice :)Read more
[Drupal] hyperlinks are the cause of almost every result in Google’s top 20 results for the keyword “pay day loans”
I'm not sure if this belongs here, but its pretty interesting...
Drupal allows the posting of comments on articles posted. These comments allow some basic HTML by default, including hyperlinks. These hyperlinks are the cause of almost every result in Google’s top 20 results for the keyword “pay day loans”. The hyperlinks do not contain a nofollow attribute which means that a spammer may post as many links in these comments to the pay day site as they want, and Google will treat them as ranking links.
I know that everyone in this group probably enables antispam countermeasures on their sites (right?!) such as mollom, captchas, nofollows, etc.
That all being said, this author is correct when he states
Personally I find it amazing that Drupal does not include the nofollow attribute by default.
I tried to find a core issue request, but was unable to. Does one exist? I can't imagine that it doesn't :)
F'n spam...Read more

I've been investigating the og:url tag and canonical URL's tonight in an attempt to wrap my head around the best practice for this.
We've usually always use the node/NID as the canonical URL as well as the URL used for facebook likes. It seemed natural since my idea of a canonical URL is that the URL is persistent. A URL-alias changes if the node title is altered.
However, after getting in SEO/Sharing-trouble with a website that uses node/NID as canonical URL as well as the og:url BUT also uses Global Redirect module (redirecting node/ID to its alias) I'm having second thoughts.Read more
