Training (onboarding) being developed.

Conversation in the call:
  • Boston Massachusetts page:  SEO, appearance, 12,900 views
  • Desktops vs tablets
  • Hub page (mock up):  Massachusetts Genealogy Guide- an SEO designed page. Title chosen by FHL SEO expert.  Feedback:  Need user testing. 
  • Reason for page layout-graphics (Boston)
  • Placement of sidebar - concern that they are mostly for volunteers and take up space.

Ran out of time.  We will continue discussion next week.

Questions submitted by Adopters:

"Would like more specifics about SEO ideas/guidelines for the wiki."
