Joomla SEO: Ten FAQs for newbies

Posted by on in Joomla Tutorials
Deutsch

The first time I researched Joomla SEO, I had many questions in my mind. And I saw that not only Joomla newbies but also webmasters had the same troubles as me. So I think it's a good idea to make the list of Joomla FAQs related to SEO. It will help you save a lot of time when doing SEO for a Joomla website. And here are ten of the most common FAQs.

Joomla SEO: Ten FAQs for Joomla newbies

1. Has Joomla already got built-in SEO? What can I do with the SEO functionality?

Yes, Joomla already has some SEO functions:

  • SEO settings tab in Global Configuration.
  • SEO features in menu item: Page Display options tab and Metadata options tab
  • Metadata Options in Article Manager

When newbies first install Joomla, the URL rewrite function is disabled. You must enable it by renaming the file htaccess.txt to .htaccess.

With Joomla version 1.5, SEO functionality is simple. You just control the Meta tags of the website or articles, and re-write the URL. With the menu manager, you can't set Meta tags; the Page Heading is not displayed as an H1 tag. But from version 1.7/2.5, there are four more functions: setting aliases for article titles, include site name in page titles, Metadata options for Menu item and displaying the page heading as an H1 heading (visible to search engine).

Joomla SEO function: Page heading in H1 tag

Insert H1 tag in Joomla 2.5

When you include site name in page titles you can choose the position to place your site name: after or before page titles. What is the difference? With large brands, they often put the site name before a page title to increase Click-Through Rate (CTR). But for lesser known brands or news websites , it's better to put the site name after a page title for maximum SEO value.

For further functionality, you should use Joomla SEO extensions. We've collected all the most useful tools in the article: "Excellent SEO plug-in for Joomla website".

Excellent SEO plugins for Joomla website - Detailed Guideline

Posted by on in Joomla Tutorials

Each of us knows about the importance of improving search engine optimization (SEO). You can read a lot of articles about how to optimize original Joomla templates on the Internet - but it's not the best way. You can save your time and have a better result with SEO plugins for Joomla. That's the reason why one of the most frequently questions now is: "Which Joomla extensions are good for SEO?"

JSN Epic template | SEO friendly template

First, I will note what you need to do to improve SEO of your website:

  • On page
    • Control Meta tags (such as title tag, description tag): the keywords in these elements will be shown up in search results. Search engines can know your site talks about what.
    • Fix crawl errors: search engines will regard your website as a high-quality one and improve your ranking.
    • Rewrite the URLs: The default URL can't help search engines to get information about the content of a page. You should rewrite the URLs, so that the friendly URLs allow your site to achieve better rankings.
    • SEO article content: Not only the main page but also each of your articles can affect the ranking in search results.
  • Off page
    • Submit sitemap: get your website indexed by search engines in the way you want.
    • Build back links: more links will generally lead to better search engine rankings and a better Google Page Rank.
  • Check the traffic: monitor the visitors and improve your SEO continuously.

I have been testing various extensions to solve all of the above points. I choose tools for Joomla websites only. I didn't evaluate tools for general websites such as: SEO Powersuite, SEOmoz or Raven. Therefore, this article will give you six excellent SEO plugins which you can search for easily in Joomla extensions directory (JED).
