Internet users rely on popular search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing to find websites containing specific information. Almost all websites depend on search engines to drive traffic. So having your website on the top page of Search Engine Result Pages (SERP) is of prime importance.

Search engines use automated software known as web crawlers or spiders at frequent intervals to archive documents from the HTML content and display the websites that match the given keywords. Each search engine has a distinct algorithm (that no one else seems to know) which they keep evolving to form the order in which the URLs appear in the SERP.

Having clean and appealing websites with solid content is not just enough nowadays. Using a Content Management System (CMS) like Drupal to build your website is a smart move because of its ability to quickly bubble to the top of SERP in an organic search. That explains why many leading industries use Drupal websites. Drupal has certain built-in functionalities and add-on modules that enhance Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

Clean URLs: With Drupal, clean URLs can be had by just checking on the appropriate box. With clean URL turned on, Drupal will generate URLs like http://www.sitname.com/node/123 instead of “http://www.sitname.com/?q=node/123”. Not having URLs with “? q=”, helps to keep the parameters in the URL short and less and aids web crawling.

Pathauto module: The Pathauto module enables Drupal websites to make user-friendly URLs by automatically generating path aliases for contents using nodes, taxonomy terms and users. This makes the content more visible and easier to remember. For example; www.sitename.com/five-fun-activities-at-the beach is definitely easier to remember than say node/6276.

Global Redirect: Does a 301 redirect to the path alias. Thus, it helps generate clean SEO friendly URLs.

XML Sitemap Module: This module helps search engines crawl their websites intelligently and keeps their results updated.

Google Analytics: This module integrates with Google Analytics and gives you the feedback from your website’s traffic and thus boosts your site’s marketing effectiveness.

SEO Compliance Checker: This module performs a set of checks when a node content is created or modified and gives the user a feedback on its SEO compliance.

SEO Checklist: This module is a checklist of Drupal SEO best practices for proper search engine optimization of your website.It gives you a functional to-do list of modules and tasks that remain. This module was created and is maintained by Ben Finklea of Volacci, a Drupal SEO expert.

Search 404: To avoid standard “404 Page not found” from old unused sites, this module performs a search on the keywords in the URL, and shows the result of the search. This is also a module recommended in the SEO check list and is maintained by Zyxware Technologies.

When a company takes up a project with a client they normally will have to sign an agreement with the client that neither party will disclose information that will be shared as part of the project to anybody else and that the information shared shall not be used for creating competing products/services by the company. This is a standard document that needs to be signed for most projects. This document is also referred to as Non Disclosure Agreement. We are publishing our Confidential Disclosure Agreement here. Feel free to copy and use for your needs. Business Solution Agreements CDA NCA Leave a reply Your email address will not be published.

I think you can have a legally binding contract registered between two parties. There is an Indian Contracts Act that deals with such issues. You can please refer that or talk with a lawyer ;) Shailendra (not verified) access_time 01 Dec 2020 - 08:24 Hi, I would like to know whether this Agreement can be printed on a Company Letterhead to be legally enforceable or does it need to be done on a Stamp Paper only? If on a Stamp Paper, then of what value? Thank you, Regards, Shailendra Naveena (not verified) access_time 01 Dec 2020 - 08:24 In reply to What is the Substrate that should be used for this Agreement? by Shailendra (not verified) It has to be ideally on Rs. 50 stamp paper, or refer to the state stamp Act where it is executed. In case of other party being an International client, in such a case on letter head or original sheets. Anonymous (not verified) access_time 01 Dec 2020 - 08:24 Can a non compete agreement be voided if it only has the day and month on it, the year was not completey filled (200 )? It was signed by both parties, without dates by signatures. Thank tx Pagination Current page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Next page Next › Last page Last » Add new comment
