09:20 ranguard so... I think we have a problem... when ever I search google for a module I get s.c.o - not metacpan - need to think of something to get more links to metacpan :)
09:28 tokuhirom metacpan needs seo?
09:28 ranguard tokuhirom: yea - acutally your right should start by looking at the site it self
10:04 daxim joined #metacpan

14:45 rwstauner i tried a few searches on duckduckgo and i usually see github, s.c.o., perlmonks, tblog posts, no metacpan :-(
14:48 rwstauner google's results actually look better
14:48 ranguard need to look at the log really - see what the bots are finding, and maybe build a Sitemap file or something
14:48 rwstauner for some searches anyway
14:48 rwstauner yeah i was wondering about that
14:49 rwstauner at least the home page links to Recent so that should help
14:49 rwstauner but not for old stable modules
14:49 crazed- https://duckduckgo.com/?q=cpan+duckduckgo <- helps to be specific
14:49 dipsy [ cpan duckduckgo at DuckDuckGo ]
14:49 ranguard http://www.foxtons.co.uk/robots.txt -> Sitemap: ...  e.g. http://www.foxtons.co.uk/robots.txt
14:49 crazed- of course, that's specifically querying mcpan, not natural
14:50 rwstauner is there a page that shows all the authors?
14:50 rwstauner not that i can tell
14:50 ranguard http://www.foxtons.co.uk/sitemap_areas.xml being one example - we could easily build that
14:51 rwstauner yeah, i've built a sitemap xml before
14:51 crazed- rwstauner: using the API, something like the example http://explorer.metacpan.org/?url=%2Fv0%2Fauthor​%2F_search%3Fpretty%3Dtrue%26q%3D*%26size%3D100 ?
14:51 dipsy urgh. long url. Try http://tinyurl.com/m4f6m4n
14:51 dipsy [ MetaCPANExplorer ]
14:51 ranguard An author list would be a good start
14:52 rwstauner we could build a page of authors similar to the current page of contributors
14:52 rwstauner just a list of names/avatars... at least that page would link to all modules
14:53 ranguard woo - nice idea - probably need paging - or at least alphabetical (and UTF8 Chars for those other authors)
14:53 crazed- a full author list seems like it would be demoted for being so thick with links
14:55 ranguard guess that's why we'd need to look at logs to see if it would help Google find the pages
14:56 * ranguard is also considering /user/<username> pages which have your fav's listed - not sure how we'd link to that other than alphabecially
15:06 rwstauner i'm pretty sure there's a ticket for user pages (for faves) who aren't authors
15:08 rwstauner recent faves is also currently available: home -> recent uploads -> recent faves
16:14 oalders i'd really like to be able to scroll through author pages anyway
16:15 oalders and we do need to look at the the page titles etc to make sure the SEO stuff is better.
16:15 oalders a lot of times when you do find stuff on google the first snippet from the page is not helpful at all
