Subject Search Engine Optimization and Cocoon
Date Fri, 12 Apr 2002 10:40:10 GMT
One of my *things* is Search Engine Optimization or SEO.  SEO tries to 
define the rules a site must comply to to be "found" by search engines and 
thus get a lot of relevant visitors.  I found Cocoon to be a perfect 
platform to do server side programming that can be hidden entirely from the 
client.  Even page optimization is possible.
There is a rather important rule that is broken by some samples: "Some 
major robots (programs that requests and index the content of your site) 
will not index your page and thus not follow the links in it if you use a 
querystring in the URL."  This rule is not important if you use forms, 
since robots will never enter data and submit a form.  I hope that passing 
parameters in the URL will not be a "standard" thing in Cocoon.
I am willing to spend some time to compile a text that explains how the 
benefits of Cocoon can be used in SEO.  Anybody interested?
