Search engines and my site





stone1343
Hi, I've installed Drupal in a directory on my site ( http://www.stone1343.frih.net/drupal ) and I'm wondering if that is going to prevent me from being listed in Google and other search engines if my front page redirects automatically to Drupal.

Also, I've looked in the forums for other specific tips for SEO with Drupal and haven't found anything. Are there any tips you can provide?

you can check out how not to redirect the page, instead rewrite the page... on the fly! check out here for a package to .htaccess optimize your site (http://www.frihost.com/forums/vt-61852.html)

You must permanent redirect your home page to your drupal site.

Here is how you can do that

1) create a file name .htaccess (remeber no extention)
2) place the following code in it
Code:

redirect 301 /index.html http://www.stone1343.frih.net/drupal/

3) upload .htaccess in your root folder i.e http://www.stone1343.frih.net/
4) access http://www.stone1343.frih.net/ to see that you are directed to your drupal site or not.

A permanent 301 redirect will not prevent your to get listed in search engines.
here is a great resource on 301 permanent redirects http://www.tamingthebeast.net/articles3/spiders-301-redirect.htm

You must see http://drupal.org/node/67767 this for drupal seo tips.
