Drupal SEO Followup

Over a month ago I installed PathAuto and XML Sitemap on the Research Gateway with the goal of increasing search engine referrals. Here are a few graphs which imply a positive correlation. A few bullet points:

- The trend before installation of SEO modules was toward more search engine referrals so it is possibly my efforts only expedited this trend.
- I spent about a day installing and configuring these modules.
- The number of URLs indexed does not indicate *which* URLs are indexed. I believe Google discards indexed-URLs if they have low information content and many of our pages probably fit that description. I don't expect our entire site (~11000 URLs) to be indexed, ever. It appears to have hit a plateau but I expect the number to continue fluctuating.
- I never got the .htaccess rewrite rule (www.umbs.lsa.umich.edu -> umbs.lsa.umich.edu) to work properly. I hate .htaccess rule syntax.
