SEO Optimized DokuWiki: Basic Configuration

DokuWiki

The default configuration of DokuWiki is good enough for most uses, but with SEO in mind, it has some poorly chosen configuration options. We're not sure why these settings have been set this way but assume historical reasons (or in other words: backward compability).

Note that this page is part of our article on a SEO optimized DokuWiki.

The following table lists the configuration settings changed from its default values and provides the reasoning behind it. As you can see, the table is quite long, which indicates, that we have changed a lot of options:

FIXME work in progress!

Setting Default Value SEO Value Description Comments
start start :!: name of start page We did not change this value and will not change it in the future due to compability issues. However, you might change it to an important keyword (e.g., seo). That way, you'll get some additional keywords in default urls (instead of http://en.seowiki.info/start you'll get http://en.seowiki.info/seo as inbound links)
title DokuWiki SEO Wiki :!: what to show in the title Should be a short name that is being displayed in the header of the page (right side) and, more importantly in the title of the page. This value should contain your most important keyword (here: “SEO” and “Wiki”)
template default seo :!: download and extract to lib/tpl We are currently preparing our SEO optimized template for DokuWiki for your convenience
breadcrumbs 10 0 :!: how many recent visited pages to show We think that the breadcrumbs are a little complicated, therefore we turned them off
