Topic: Brainstorming session on SEO for the WSUWP Platform and WSU websites.
Location Change: ITB 2071
Time: 9:30 am – 11:00 am

For open lab this Friday we’d like to spend some time discussing search engine optimization needs for WSU websites. Specifically we’d like to hear from you what tools, features, and training you think would be beneficial to improving SEO on your site(s).

Web Communication Team Update

To ensure continuity on all the great web work already underway, Danial Bleile will serve as the interim technical lead for the WSU web communication team. In addition to his current responsibilities as the senior WordPress developer, he also will manage the priorities of the web communication unit as well as oversee the newly formed web governance team.

Jason Bittle will serve as the lead designer for the new web design system. Eric Limburg and Danial Bleile will partner closely with Jason to continue the positive momentum that already has been done on this important effort.

Thank you to Danial, Jason and Eric for taking on these additional responsibilities. I will reach out again as we get closer to determining a permanent solution for the web communication team lead. As always, weekly open lab sessions will continue to be scheduled every Friday morning at 9:30am. Please contact our Jira Service Desk if you have any questions or issues.

Thanks,
Holly
