When you install Joomla 1.5 or later, the default title for the home page is «Welcome to the Frontpage».
Many Joomla newbies have trouble changing this text. In fact, one of the most commonly asked questions for new Joomla users is 'Where is the "Welcome to the Frontpage" text?'.
Relax, I'll show you how to change it and make your site title into something relevant for your site.
There are basically three ways of approaching search engine friendly (SEF) URLs in Joomla. Here, I explain these three methods of Joomla SEO and their pros and cons.
Search engine friendly URLs are very important if you want to achieve good positions in Google and other search engines. Firstly, the URLs are a lot easier to understand for the user (more likely to be clicked). Secondly, and most importantly, they will (if well-built) contain keywords that the search engine may use in the indexation of the page and thus improve your rankings for those words.
The addition of Search Friendly (SEF) URLs will add greatly to your site in terms of search engine visibility.
In this tutorial, I show you how to set up one of the most popular SEF extensions for Joomla - sh404SEF.
My favorite SEF extension for Joomla is sh404SEF. I have tried a few other extensions as well, but sh404SEF is the one I'm comfortable with and which best seems to meet my requirements. This tutorial will help you duplicate the setup I use here at Joomlablogger.net.
Every Joomla user has their own favorite extensions. Still, there's a huge selection of extensions available in the Joole Extensions Directory. And the task of finding the perfect one's for you can be a daunting one.
In this article, I tell you which are my favorites, and why they make my life with Joomla so much easier.
