Client needed a host of tiny to big updates to existing Drupal6 website.
I've created a controlled sprint-based development environment, to allow progressive enhancement of existing, running website, without compromising the application's workings.
The main area of updates was:
- graphic design
- cleanup of redundant modules and content types
- general site speed optimization
- specific pages speed optimization
During the late 2012, the website undergo a massive content refactorization and SEO optimization. Along with the SEO specialist I had to create a set of handy tools to handle massive URL, titles and meta tag rewrites, as well as updating page templates to reflect new designs and content decisions from the client.
As a result the application showed great improvement in both GWT and GA, without becoming buggy or unstable.
