Just a quick reminder that I will be presenting tomorrow morning at SAA2010 on the topic of search engine optimization and archives websites. I am part of session 502 officially titled Not on Google? It Doesn’t Exist: Findability and Search Engine Optimization for Archives. My specific portion of the presentation is titled ‘Building Archives Websites That Google Will Love’ and will be a general introduction to SEO concepts and why they are important to those involved in the creation of websites for archives and other cultural heritage institutions. It will include some basic tips and techniques.
My two co-presenters, Matt Herbison and Mark Matienzo, will discuss more in depth issues related to website architecture, URLs and increasing links back into your website. We hope you can join us, even though our session is during the less than pleasant 8am Saturday morning time slot. I will be posting my slides after our session and linking to them from my presentations page. I plan to pick up some donuts to sweeten the deal!
