This post is the first in our Drupal SEO series and attempts to give you a reasonably indepth overview of what the different aspects of a standard drupal installation you will need to address for SEO are.
Drupal SEO on a bare bones installation (i.e. no additional modules installed) still needs a fair degree of knowledge if your new to drupal or SEO and can be quite daunting for someone new to SEO and/or Drupal.
The post is broken down into three sections:
1) Modules and their relevance to Drupal SEO
2) Anatomy of a Blog post from an SEO viewpoint
3) A review of all the admin settings and how they impact SEO
(Obviously I would never recommend doing a bare bones install as there are some wonderful modules that do loads of the work for you, but I think its important to understand the base your working from.)
