DotNetNuke 7 Hosting with ASPHostPortal.com :: How to Increase SEO in Your DotNetNuke Site

clock Junie 12, 2014 12:47 by author Kenny

In this article, we will talk about how to increase your SEO in your DotNetNuke site. DotNetNuke (DNN)   is an open source content management system powered by ASP.NET/Microsoft IIS web-based technologies. Although the CMS is open source, the web component platform is proprietary. The most common database used in DNN is Microsoft SQL Server, while as of June 2010, most DNN websites can be run using ASP.NET 3.5.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a cross-functional discipline and to achieve findable websites, a variety of tactics must be employed. When building DotNetNuke (DNN) websites, optimizing your websites for findability can be exceptionally challenging. DotNetNuke has many SEO features. These SEO features, however, can have a dramatic effect on how your DNN website is indexed by Google, Bing and others, and as such, can have an effect on your page rank and search results.

Start Using Semantic Markup in the Skin

Semantic markup is crucial to providing context to your content. As modules are added to the page to create the content of your site, additional markup is often a necessary evil in providing the features native to DotNetNuke. By using semantically correct markup in your skin, you’re boiling the cream to the top.

Site Settings

Here we’ll talk about one of things NOT to do when it comes to SEO in DotNetNuke. In the “site settings” of DotNetNuke, administrators have the ability to enter descriptions and keywords. By doing that, those items will then be placed in the META tags for EVERY page on the DNN website. For SEO, this is an extreme no-no, as it will confuse the search engines and reduce the relevancy and page rank of your overall DNN website. It may be an easy way to get keywords throughout your site… but it will definitely hurt you in the long run!

Make your URLs Friendlier

DNN has been making a slow journey toward a friendlier URLs. If you’re interested (and you should be) in moving faster toward full control over your URLs there are a number of extensions that will give you a long list of features make your URLs even friendlier.

Page Titles

One of the nice features about DotNetNuke is its ability to add dashes between spaced words in your page title. For example, if you title a page “DNN SEO Tips”, DNN will title the actual URL as “DNN-SEO-Tips”. This ensures that the individual words in the title will be relevant to Google.

Submit a XML Sitemap

Each DNN site automatically generates a XML sitemap (sitemap.aspx) Page Priority Starting in DNN 5.01, individual pages can have a specific priority assigned in the XML sitemap. Starting in version 5.01, DNN allows you to explicitly assigning page priority to your pages to instruct search engine bots on the hierarchy of your sites’ pages. Additionally, it is important to submit your XML sitemap to search engines.

Robots.txt

OK, this one gets a bit technical for the casual DotNetNuke administrator, but robots.txt is an important factor when comes to SEO, so what we’ll do in this section is give you enough information that you can intelligently go to your IT person or your hosting provider to ask questions.

DNN Takes Care of Meta Content

The last consideration is not so much a task, but a reminder to take care of your page meta content. DotNetNuke does a lot of the work for you in generating Demonstrate the source of meta content in DNN. It is arguable as to whether this content is relevant or considered in search engine rankings, but it can’t hurt to provide more context for your site.

Cheap DotNetNuke 7 Hosting :: How to Fix 404 Handling Error on DNN 7

clock Junie 5, 2014 06:15 by author Ben

404 Handling is the process of managing what happens when a visitor comes to your site and enters a Url/follows a link which isn't valid. The correct handling of 404 errors can really mean the different between a professional looking site, and one that still looks like it is in development. The name ‘404 Error’ is used because the web server returns a response code of ‘404’, meaning it couldn't find a matching file/resource for the Url. A well developed 404 strategy will retain users, keep search engines up to date and in general make your site look like a polished and finished effort.

Here is the tips how to fix 404 Handling Error on DotNetNuke 7 :

Keep in mind that a prerequisite for this strategy is that you must be using ASP.Net 3.5 SP1 or later. This will not work in earlier .Net Framework versions. Look at the customErrors section below in web.config:



There are a few things to notice here. First, the addition of redirectMode=”ResponseRewrite”. This enables a rewrite of the error page rather than a redirect. The next thing to notice is the specific instruction on what page handles 404 errors. Rather than ‘TheErrorPage.aspx’, 404 errors are handled by ‘404.aspx’.

Now we get to some specifics in DNN. In your DNN site create 'TheErrorPage.aspx' and '404.aspx' (or whatever you want to name them) in the root of your website. From my testing this does not work if you were to add this as a page within DNN itself (i.e. via Pages → Add). Instead, manually add these error pages in the root of the site.

Lastly add this bit of code to the 404.aspx error page:


This code simply ensures a 404 status is returned when the page loads, which should only be for 404 errors. You could do this in C# as well. You can add any HTML you would like to this page so you can provide a friendly 404 error page.

404 Error on DNN 7 Installation
If you are encountering an issue with DNN 7 installations that causes most of DNN's URLs to result in 404 errors then please try to following fix.

Within your site's web.config file locate the opening tag for the "modules" section of the web.config file which is:
"<modules>" (without quaotation marks)

Then modify it so that it reads as follows:
"<modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true">" (without quotation marks)

Then save the web.config file and restart your site.
That should resolve the issue and allow your links and pages of your DNN 7 installation to resolve correctly.
