It’s quite easy to do some extra Search Optimalisation using Sitecore. My collegues Ruben ‘Usability’ Timmerman and Ulco Wierenga pointed me on the spaces in the URL’s. Google and MSN don’t really like spaces, they rather preffer a dash(-).
It’s quite easy to implement this. Add the following line tot the encodeNameReplacements-node:
<replace mode=”on” find=” ” replaceWith=”-” />
This one is free, for others optimalisations, you have to contact and pay Ruben and Ulco :P.
Update: Just got a reply in my email of Jakob Christensen:
I can’t see any reason why we shouldn’t put this in 5.3.
Thanks a lot!
Update 2: Just got another email of Jakob, it will not be implemented in Sitecore 5.3:
I just put the line in the web.config and it completely destroyed the Sitecore Client. I don’t really have a clue why, but I don’t we have the time to find out why before 5.3.
So unfortunately it won’t be in 5.3
Too bad, hope Jakob finds out what’s killing it. I’ll check it out when the first dist of Sitecore 5.3 will arrive.
