Request for comment on post on SEO QuickStart for Rails

Hi,

http://programmers-blog.com/2010/12/21/quick-start-to-seo-for-ruby-on-rails

What do you think about this guys?

I looked through the whole Internet :wink: and found nothing simple that
would suit my simple needs. So I did these things on my own and wrote
about the process.

Thanks for any comments!

Regards,
M&W.

You might add a section on Canonicalization alongside the redirect section you have now.

The section on meta tags might benefit from mentioning that they don't
actually have any effect on Google rankings (80+% of the search
traffic on every site I've looked at logs for). See this (from 2009)
for details:
