We haven't really paid attention to SEO issues on Wikimedia sites until now. There are real problems (both technical and with current community practices and policies) that result in poor placement of Wikimedia sites in search engine results page.
This hinders our ability to fulfill our mission, as our readers don't have an easy way of accessing information. For example, poor placement in searches related to current events means that readers aren't provided with relevant content in a timely manner, even though editors are frantically building great articles about those events.
This project will let us track and organize those issues.
