Merits of Drupal and Updates on Drupal Camps

Drupal is developed into one of the most complex open-source content management systems (CMS) on the market and is represented by an array of top notch sites. Drupal is the perfect choice for large Enterprise websites that has high traffic. Drupal is famous for its relatively rapid build time. It is also known for its dynamic nature as websites designed on the Drupal framework can be altered by modifying modules. Drupal can be used to manage easily all aspects of a website, from adding content and images to updating a product catalogue, processing credit card payments or taking online reservations.

Drupal is a cost effective CMS solution as it allows Drupal programmers to develop complex websites in minimal time period compared to what it would take using other commercial CMS technologies. There are thousands of community-contributed modules that extend the flexibility of Drupal, so the chances of Drupal supporting almost all the features is high; and if at all a drupal developer can't find a module that suits the requirements, the developer can program new modules quickly and efficiently. After installing a Drupal website and is made to run, it is simple for non-technical users to add or edit content, update images, and to manage the critical data. Basic word processing skills is enough to manage a Drupal site

In addition, to above advantages Drupal offers strategic capabilities for search engine optimization and infrastructure flexibility:

•    Friendly URLs – Drupal uses Apache’s mod_rewrite to enable URLs that are both user- and search engine-friendly, which can help your search rankings.

•    Permalinks – All content created in Drupal has a permanent link or “permalink” associated with it so users can link to content freely without fear of broken links, another feature that is likely to boost search ranking and page views.

•    Taxonomy and Tagging – Drupal enables you to define hierarchical categories that can be used to tag and organize content, as well as fields for content authors to apply free tags. Tagging content can help enhance your site’s organization, enable related content linking, and assist in the definition of meta-keywords that can boost search rankings.

•    Platform Flexibility – Drupal was designed from the start to be multi-platform. It can be installed and run on Apache, Linux, Solaris, Windows, and Mac OSX platforms.
