In this presentation, Michael Myers, CTO at Clarity Digital Group walks through Examiner.com's migration to Drupal 7. With over 42,000 content contributors, Examiner.com has enjoyed some of the fastest year-over-year growth of any online media company. Examiner.com has demonstrated a long-term strategic vision to leverage social media for improving online news distribution models. This commitment has directly led to the large-scale migration of the entire Examiner.com site to open source Drupal.
This case study highlights how Examiner.com's migration to Drupal 7 has effectively improved their search engine and page load performance, community interaction and user engagement, and the elimination of all costs associated with server licensing fees.
