  1. The impact of Django page redirects to SEO - Fixing internationalized pattern URLs

    Django makes heavy use of page redirects to handle form submissions, manage multilingual content and accomplish many other tasks. While there's nothing wrong with that (in fact in most cases it is considered to be the best practice), careless use of page redirects might affect our website's page rank. To better understand the potential danger we should first see how redirect works and which tools does Django provide for redirecting to a new page. We will also examine & fix a case where Django does not use the optimal redirect type: the internationalized URL patterns.

  2. SEO-friendly image names with sorl-thumbnail and Django

    When working with Django, I tend to use sorl-thumbnail more and more. It is a quick & easy way of generating image thumbnails for your application. As a matter of fact, I use it on almost every img tag on my templates to ensure that user-upload images will fit the page layout. But the URLs that the application generates are of the form http://media.example.com/cache/9f/0c/9f0c98435b16bcea2b9ead87.jpg. Except for being unpretty, such URLs are SEO deal-killers.
