[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Search_engine_optimization Seo] stands for search engine optimization.  This page is dedicated to helping improve your page rank on search engines.
Some questions:
+
* Did you guys have any issue installing WebOS Quick Install? (novacom driver issue?)
+
* Some ebuilds are on Sunrise (outdated), maybe we should bump them into Funtoo? (I can get this done somewhere this week)
+
* After installing novacom manually, WebOS Quick Install still doesn't see my TouchPad. Any clue?
+
  
Edit :
+
== Domains ==
 +
When selecting a domain name, try to choose a short domain name, omitting words like "the" the longer the url, the harder it is to remember, and this affects page rank.
  
* I had to run manually the novacomd from /opt/Palm/novacomd. Preware installed now :)

http://www.yes.com is excellent
 +
http://www.nooooooooooooooo.com is bad....

Domain registration duration impacts SEO, if you intend to have the site a long time, register several years rather than a short period of time, as this will improve SEO.

your sites urls should have 1 or the other url re-writing, and 301 permanent redirecting so search engines do not see duplicate content.  You are not penalized for url length by adding a www. subdomain.
  
On my touchpad, there is no /mnt/internal. The vfat filesystem is mounted on /media/internal

You should prefer - over _ to represent spaces.  MediaWiki is flawed in design preferring _ over -.  This is an older SEO problem, yet it still persists in affecting your page ranking.  [[web-server-stack]] is an example of an SEO friendly url with spaces.
  
Seem we need a functional ARM cross-compilation toolchain, I have some long terms projects running a an ARM processor not counting it would give me extra compilation power to use my x86 desktop for SPARC stages. I can give it a look once my emergencies are cleared.

== Server Speed ==
 +
How fast your page loads significantly impacts seo.  Installing a caching reverse proxy, and testing that it hits close to 100% of the time is a good idea. It prevents your server from rebuilding pages, hitting the processor, and also speeds up page delivery to move the bottle neck from the php building to the internet connection speed.  see: {{Package|www-servers/varnish}}

We will be using http://landley.net/aboriginal/ which provides a distro-agnostic cross-compile toolchain. This is not absolutely necessary for the TouchPad port though as we have a Gentoo seed stage already, so Metro can build a new stage directly on the TouchPad.

Another small point : I had to remount / read-write in order to create /mnt/gentoo. If you remember having to do so, you should add "mount -o remount,rw /" in the setup of the loopback :)

On my touchpad, the vfat filesystem didn't allow me to create an image of more than 4GB. I decided to restart the Gentoo installation using a "real" ext3 partition following parts of this guide : [[http://pebloy.blogspot.com/2011/09/customize-hp-touchpad.html]]. Note that doing so will require to "reset" the touchpad to defaults (but it will keep your personal files). I created a 12GB ext3 partition, and then reinstalled preware/F4/Xecutah/Govnah/etc

You can also use ATA over Ethernet to remotely mount a filesystem if you are using the F4 kernel. This way you can have fast remote storage over WIFI. The key here is to optimize WIFI performance and keep the screen on.

Seo stands for search engine optimization. This page is dedicated to helping improve your page rank on search engines.

Domains

When selecting a domain name, try to choose a short domain name, omitting words like "the" the longer the url, the harder it is to remember, and this affects page rank.

http://www.yes.com is excellent http://www.nooooooooooooooo.com is bad....

Domain registration duration impacts SEO, if you intend to have the site a long time, register several years rather than a short period of time, as this will improve SEO.

Canonical Urls

your sites urls should have 1 or the other url re-writing, and 301 permanent redirecting so search engines do not see duplicate content. You are not penalized for url length by adding a www. subdomain.

# curl -I http://funtoo.org/Welcome
# curl -I http://www.funtoo.org/Welcome

php?

Question marks are bad. Most search engines freak out about indexing anything past a ? so use url rewrites to remove index.php? and leave just site.com/Main_Page

Url spaces

You should prefer - over _ to represent spaces. MediaWiki is flawed in design preferring _ over -. This is an older SEO problem, yet it still persists in affecting your page ranking. web-server-stack is an example of an SEO friendly url with spaces.

Server Speed

How fast your page loads significantly impacts seo. Installing a caching reverse proxy, and testing that it hits close to 100% of the time is a good idea. It prevents your server from rebuilding pages, hitting the processor, and also speeds up page delivery to move the bottle neck from the php building to the internet connection speed. see: Varnish

Meta Description/Keywords/Tags

Meta information is parsed directly by search engines. with these in place they will be displayed rather than the initial text of your canonical landing page.

Dublin core

Dublin core is a system that generates meta information dynamically.

External Links

Posting links around is ok so long as it is organic, and not spammy. addthis share widgets improve SEO as they produce many backlinks that are not a bot dumping anywhere, and everywhere. addthis produces twitter/facebook/g+/redit etc share links, and has an analytic service.

SiteMaps & robots.txt

Sitemaps generate xml pages that tell crawlers about your sites content pages, and robots.txt tell crawlers about pages they're not allowed to index. In a few iterations ill look up how to make a robots that allows everything, as if its not even there, and an external site map generating service.
