Description

Objective: effective indexing of all of our content by search engines.

Note that this is closely related to ticket #6032 that describes initial attempts to incorporate schema.org Dataset annotations into our HTML pages produced from MetacatUI. Matt has a local branch with initial implementation along these lines.

I'm in the middle of doing something similar for the NCEAS website. Dynamically-created pages can be found by the Google crawler by creating an XML sitemap that can be submitted to Google. There are free tools online for creating these sitemaps from a list of URLs. So we could create an XML sitemap from a list of /#view/{pid} URLS for the KNB so metadata files can be found via Google searches.

There's a utility class in Metacat that does this for our old skin URLs. Could be reworked a bit to make it useful for metacatUI.
