The Commissioner’s Office is the Barcelona City Council body responsible for fostering the emergence and growth of the city’s Social and Solidarity Economy, whether by providing support for all current social and solidarity economy initiatives or by encouraging the creation of new ones. The Commissioner’s Office was created in July 2015 and, as a new area of Barcelona City Council, did not have its own municipal website.
The basis of this web project was to structure for web a content that had initially been conceived to be shown on paper, such as the Plan for promoting solidarity economy in Barcelona. This involved an intensive work of content architecture that included the creation of a visual sitemap of the website and an SEO-oriented content and url strategy. It was also necessary a keyword research to guide the content creation process and to lay the foundations of the SEO strategy. In addition, a prototyping and conceptualization work was done with the idea of creating a usable and easy to navigate web for users. The challenge was to fit all this content architecture and SEO basis within the prefixed structure followed by the municipal websites.
The web has been built in Drupal 7 applying the content structure previously thought. In addition, the theme and specific Drupal modules of the Barcelona City Council have been applied. Efforts have been focused on building an adequate information architecture. The result is a web that follows the foundations of the structure that was previously given but where the dynamic elements (social networks, news, agenda) have a great presence. All the SEO elements have been taken into account for search engine poistioning.
