Similar to the StumbleThis module that we had created earlier we have created another bookmarking module for Drupal - SlashdotIt module. Unlike the other social bookmarking sites Slashdot is very selective in terms of the articles that get approved from the submission queue also known as the Slashdot firehose. Use this module on your site only if you are sure that you have slashdot worthy content.

Check out http://www.slashdot.org and figure out the kind of articles that get posted at slashdot. If your site has comparable content then go ahead and use this module. The administrative options are similar to the StumbleThis Drupal module that we had created earlier. The module has been tested with Drupal 5.3. Please use the comments form below if you have any questions or suggestions.

Most webmasters do not realize this, but a lot of the content on lot of websites can be accessed from multiple URLs. A simple example would be where www.example.com and example.com leads to the same page. This is a fatal mistake in Search Engine Optimization and search engines penalize you for duplicate content. The correct configuration would be where the above two urls will lead you to the same page but example.com will redirect you to www.example.com with a 301 (Moved permanently) status which will not result in search engines penalizing the page. It is very easy to configure 301 redirects using Apache .htaccess file and the process is the same for a Drupal installation also. Drupal Technical Apache htaccess SEO Add new comment
