Default A Tricky SEO Question With CakePHP

Hey guys.. I have a question for you. My first question for the community.

We develop 90 percent of our applications in CakePHP. In using an MVC architectural approach, its difficult at best to keep up with all the relative SEO implementations in regards to keywords, titles, etc... without storing them in the databases and then referencing those rows from the database. Just wondering if anyone had any quick tips on this. Thanks in advance.

I'll skip my usual SEO speech and go directly to your question.

Generally speaking, yes, I store a page's metadata in the same record as I do the content. (keywords, description, url slug, etc.) You are right, when working out of an MVC implementation, it can get tricky and storing them off in their own fields in the database makes reconstituting the page much easier.

I don't use CakePHP, I use Zend Framework but it's the same concepts. (and I've got friends in CakePHP and repect it, good choice.

HTH,

Thanks calevans.

Yeah, zend framework is cool too, along with symphony and code ignitor. I guess the biggest problem I am having is my SEO guys dont know cake, and dont know the structure of an MVC framework. They are used to working in PHP and HTMl and just edit files from a procedural programming format.

I wonder if there is a way or if something exists out there that allows for SEO guys/gals to update MVC frameworks from a keywords, description, title, etc, perspective.

Thanks again..

Jeremy

There's a book on PHP & SEO (I reviewed it on DevZone, email me, I'll send you the link) and if you like, I've got friends in CakePHP I can put you in touch with and maybe they can get you some help.

Default Can you give an Example

I know sometimes people don't want to share specifics for obvious reasons, but could you give some more details as to what they are trying to do? What I usually do is store that information in a database then when you need to add titles, keywords etc you can just update the database records directly, import the data from a file, or it's easy to make an admin GUI so the info can be added by someone with no technical experience at all.

With such flexibility in using a database I'm curious as to why they would need to modify the php (at least as far as keywords, titles and descriptions are concerned).

Thanks,

Josh
