Topic: SEO for ICE-breakers

every time I want to ping the iCE breakers, I have two problems. 1. I have to remember the name of the team (@centril mentioned this as an issue for the cleanup-crew on discord, see related triagebot issue, and 2. I have to remember the syntax for the ping message in question.

When I try to resolve this by googling for "LLVM ICE breakers", this is the first link: https://blog.rust-lang.org/inside-rust/2019/10/22/LLVM-ICE-breakers.html

That page is advertising the teams, but its aimed at people who might want to join the team. It doesn't help me when I want to notify them.

pnkfelix (Mar 12 2020 at 15:19, on Zulip):

Now, I know we cannot change Google. maybe we could change the metadata for our pages. But I have a simpler solution: Can you modify the text of the blog post to link to the right place(s)?

centril (Mar 12 2020 at 15:19, on Zulip):
  1. should be simpler soon; @rustbot ping cleanup
pnkfelix (Mar 12 2020 at 15:19, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis ^ ?

pnkfelix (Mar 12 2020 at 15:19, on Zulip):

I guess maybe I could just submit a PR to the blog.rust-lang.org repo?

yes I did link to the triagebot issue

Santiago Pastorino (Mar 12 2020 at 15:33, on Zulip):

just commented that I'm not sure if a lot of aliases to cleanup are better :)

Santiago Pastorino (Mar 12 2020 at 15:33, on Zulip):

that may be a bit confusing

Santiago Pastorino (Mar 12 2020 at 15:33, on Zulip):

maybe just one alias is enough?

Santiago Pastorino (Mar 12 2020 at 15:33, on Zulip):

cleanup

centril (Mar 12 2020 at 15:35, on Zulip):

@Santiago Pastorino replied; why do you think it would be confusing?

Santiago Pastorino (Mar 12 2020 at 15:35, on Zulip):

I guess seeing one time ping shrink, another time ping cleanup and so on it may make it harder to remember

Santiago Pastorino (Mar 12 2020 at 15:36, on Zulip):

given that the group name is cleanup crew I guess just cleanup is enough

centril (Mar 12 2020 at 15:36, on Zulip):

if you remember one over the other then any of them should work :slight_smile:

centril (Mar 12 2020 at 15:37, on Zulip):

I personally don't associate what the group does with "cleanup", so one of the other is more memorable for me

Santiago Pastorino (Mar 12 2020 at 15:37, on Zulip):

:+1:, not really important, if it's better for you then it's good :)

  1. I have to remember the syntax for the ping message in question.

Something that might help would be to use the GitHub Saved Replies feature to store that message. You then just pick it from the dropdown when you want to ping the team.

pnkfelix (Mar 12 2020 at 19:01, on Zulip):

in any case, I went ahead and added the links I suggested (see https://github.com/rust-lang/blog.rust-lang.org/pull/543 )
