I am interested to know few sample links or articles about ASP.Net SEO Architectural Pattern which helps me to explain them about re-engineering the site !!!

probably scottgu posts are the best option in order to start: here you can find some of them plus the SEO Toolkit.

ASP.net SEO Improvements: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2010/01/05/asp-net-4-seo-improvements-vs-2010-and-net-4-0-series.aspx

IIS!: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2009/06/03/iis-search-engine-optimization-toolkit.aspx

  • sebastian_h - thank you ..! these links are very meaningful !! Can i install SEO Improvement Toolkit on an existing website which is developed on ASP.Net may be VS 2005 or VS 2008 !! Whether that will make any difference ?? – user6636 Apr 7 '11 at 0:00

which helps me to explain them about re-engineering the site !!!

Don't. There is no reason to re-engineer a site to MVC or whatever for SEO purposes. Google is great at detecting quality content which people link too. An extra viewstate field doesn't kill that.


Start here http://www.iis.net/download/seotoolkit for a nice tool to use.

  • Whether this Toolkit helps to deploy existing Website which is developed on ASP.Net ? – user6636 Apr 6 '11 at 23:54
  • The tool is not exclusive to .net apps but runs on the windows based OS. You run it, point it toward a URL and let it sniff out information to help improve your SEO performance. – Chance Apr 7 '11 at 0:00
  • Okay, I understand about IIS - SEO Toolkit!! Do ASP.Net Webapplication requires any Architectural Design Pattern like MVC .. inorder to improve the Website performance ? – user6636 Apr 7 '11 at 0:01
  • Not at all. MVC certainly helps due to its clean url structure but that can be obtained through any .Net structure through various rewriting or routing mechanisms. – Chance Apr 7 '11 at 1:42
