Drupal is in fact great for administration web sites, setting up web logs, and wide-ranging web-pushing bits and pieces. Regrettably, we cannot use it entirely for Content Management System because of advanced thinking of Users, but as a special tool or clerical tool for public who primarily interact in the course of the website quality and performance improvement.

In addition, Drupal offers strategic capabilities for search engine optimization and infrastructure flexibility which is designed to be standards compliant helping not only to boost your search engine rankings but be accessible as well.
* Friendly URLs – Drupal uses Apache’s mod_rewrite to enable URLs that are both user- and search engine-friendly, which can help your search rankings.
* Permalinks – All content created in Drupal has a permanent link or “permalink” associated with it so users can link to content freely without fear of broken links.
* Taxonomy and Tagging – Drupal enables you to define hierarchical categories that can be used to tag and organize content, as well as fields for content authors to apply free tags. Tagging content can help enhance your site’s organization, enable related content linking, and assist in the definition of meta-keywords that can boost search rankings.
* Google Ajax Search Module - The main googleajaxsearch module allows the addition of inline searches over a number of Google services (Web Search, Local Search, Video Search, Blog Search, and News Search).
* Platform Flexibility – Drupal was designed from the start to be multi-platform. Not only can it can be installed on either Apache or Microsoft IIS, it can also run on Linux, BSD, Solaris, Windows, and Mac OSX platforms.
