Site Tuning

Fine tuning PigsLipstick.com on pivotx

I've spent a fair bit of time fine tuning the site and the pivotx environment exclusive of content.  Part of this exercise involved dumping early 3,500 comments which had accumulated over the course of four week's time.  Sadly, this included legitimate comments too, but most were spam and of a magnitude that did not warrant a more careful grooming.  With controls in place now, I hope not to have to bulk-dump comments again in the future.

I've come to realize that there was at least six to eight hours additional effort pre-launch that went unrealized.  This included to formation of categories, inclusion in the pivotx category schema (quite an interesting approach taken with respect to multi-tenancy support and categorization, as well as authoring), configuration of comment and track-back spam control, purging of various default data, and several minor post-deployment cleanups.

One area that Iagave committed to paying greater heade is categorization as it affects SEO.  Though far from the top of my items-of-importance, I do wish to leverage better SEO practices, so set out to refresh myself which led to the following:

And finally, a very solid article on the overarching topic of search engine optimization:

Due to 3,000+ spam comments posted on this site each month, I am forced to take measures to at least cull out the machine-generated comments and those who cannot solve basic math problems.
