Drupal is a free modular web application framework originally written by Dries Buytaert. Drupal is written in PHP and can be used with various relational database management systems.

Did I already mention that Drupal is a really cool CMS or should I call it Web application framework? One of the features that sets Drupal apart from many other open source projects is its taxonomy system. With Drupal you can easily categorize content using vocabularies and terms.

For SEO Expert Blog I have set up one free tagging vocabulary called keywords. Each time I write a new post I can enter tags that will be added to the vocabulary if they do not yet exist. These tags are displayed as links in each post. They link to a teaser list of posts tagged with this term. A great way to set up relations between your posts.

Trailer for Basement Tapes

OpenSourceCinema.org is a collaborative documentary project to create a feature film about copyright in the digital age, which is tentatively titled Basement Tapes.

This is the trailer for the film. I like the old lady's explanation of the word mashup at the beginning.

Btw OpenSourceCinema.org is a Drupal site.

The Key is Compelling Content

Vanessa Fox gave a talk at the BlogHer Business '07 conference about search engine optimization issues. You can read a summary in the Official Google Webmaster blog. Wonder if she mentioned that Drupal is a good choice not only form an SEO perspective to build a website, as blogher.org is a Drupal site.
