Joomla Day 2012 - What Are You Waiting for?
Recently, a guy - my roommate kept saying about Joomla over and over again until I got sick of it. However, I'm a little curious about this kind of thing. What the heck is it, anyway? Why do people take so much care of it? Then I do some Google search and finally find this: Joomla Day 2012 event - sounds interesting, huh?
What Is Called Joomla Day?
Joomla Day actually is occasion when Joomla users (including those who are newbies as well as addicts) gather together to spread the word about Joomla and share their passion for it.
Every year, Joomla Day event is hold in different places or nations and there's only one Joomla Day at a time in a specific location. So it's very exciting for Joomla users to prepare for this event in their local area.
From day to day in this event, you will experience different environment of making new friends, broadening your knowledge, updating new tracks, themes of Joomla community and especially beer (the funniest part, I think).
Google Analytics is a highly recommended tool to check and analyze site traffic statistics. Almost all Joomla newbies know that they should install this tool in their Joomla templates but not all of them know the way to do it. JoomlaShine templates can help you to install the code easily. This article will show you how to do the Google Analytics integration with JoomlaShine templates. Just follow the instructions; you can do it in a few minutes.
Why choose JoomlaShine templates
With the default Joomla, you must edit the template's HTML to add Google Analytics code. It's not easy for you to do it successfully if you are a Joomla newbie and know nothing about the HTML code. Most of you must try it at least twice to make the code work. But JoomlaShine templates have a special feature that allows you to install the code without editing the HTML file. And the code will work correctly as soon as you have added it. Have a look at the Analytics feature, and I will guide you step by step to use it with the instructions below.
Google Analytics integration
We have two parts in this process.
Create Google analytics account and get the code
Add the code into JoomlaShine templates
Create Google analytics account
Step 1: You must have a Google mail account. If you don't already have one, sign up for free.
Step 2: Visit Google Analytics website, click the "Sign up now". You will be redirected to a new page to login with your Gmail account.
When you want to learn anything, the first important thing that you need is to have a good book. You can go to a book store to find one, or search for an e-book on the Internet. In addition, there is another resource where you can get so much useful information- a well-known blog. Learning Joomla is not the only one. There are many Joomla blogs to support the user. One of the most useful Joomla blogs in my opinion is “joomlablogger.net”. Unlike a book, the joomlablogger.net website is always being updated with new and interesting information. You can take its most popular blog posts as your lessons for your learning all about Joomla. Well, let’s start now!
First of all, I would like to introduce you to this website and its administrator. This website is built for Joomla users who are at any level of Joomla use. The administrator is Kristoffer Sandven and he has worked as a professional Search Engine Optimizer (SEO) and a Joomla consultant. He has undertaken the work of Joomla blogging and run this site since 2009. For more details, you can look here. This website is a large resource of Joomla knowledge and you can learn about Joomla via the Joomla articles in the categories “Joomla tutorials”, “Joomla tips” and get the latest Joomla news updates in the category “Joomla News”. Moreover, the administrator also gives you a quick look at Joomla templates, Joomla extensions and services. In addition, because this is an open blog, you can feel free to express your ideas as well as suggest topics. Even if you just want to advertise on this site, you can do it, because this blog is visited by thousand of Joomla users from 126 countries, so it has great potential!
The website “joomlablogger.net”
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?"
First, I will note what you need to do to improve SEO of your website:
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.
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).
