Why Drupal?

If you are interested in developing search engine friendly Web sites with a content management system, you should be taking a close look at the open-source Drupal CMS. This post covers 10 reasons why you should be considering Drupal for your SEO-friendly content management instead of WordPress, Joomla, or Plone. [scroll down for the list]

Why Content Management?

If you are building search-engine-friendly Web sites and want them to be scalable, you should be using a content management system rather than building sites with plain HTML pages or Dreamweaver templates.

A content management system:

  • generally stores your content in a database
  • keeps the design of the site separate from the content
  • makes it so that to update something on every page of your CMS Web site you generally only have to update it in one place, not on every individual page of the Web site.
  • Web hosting could be another requirement which would be bothering you once you have select proper content management systems.

This makes content management systems highly scalable.

Also, good content management systems allow non-technical users add and edit the content without needing to know any HTML or Web design knowledge.

Sample Drupal Sites

Some people like other content management systems like WordPress, Joomla, and Plone. I think Drupal is the best for the task of building search engine friendly content-based Web sites.

Drupal is very powerful and can be used for building large, complex sites. Some example Drupal sites are:

  • The United Nations
  • Warner Brothers Records
  • The Discovery Channel
  • Forbes
  • The Grateful Dead
  • AOL
  • Yahoo
  • Lime.com
  • The New York Observer
