JOOMLA SEO FAQs
Does Joomla have built-in SEO?
There is in fact built in SEO support within Joomla. And it’s quite beginner friendly.
Users have the ability to define and place their metatags, customize the URL and determine how their page can displayed. In addition, there are also extensions that can be used to aid your SEO.
How can I get my Joomla website indexed in Google?
Indexing your Joomla website is a great first step to improving your SEO. To do this, you will need a sitemap for your site.
A sitemap is simply an XML file that contains all the links that are a part of your site.
After you have your sitemap, it and your website must be submitted to Google; this allows them to be able to crawl for your content faster in the future.
I need backlinks for my site. Where can I get them?
Backlinks for your Joomla site can be obtained in a variety of ways – you could utilize forum signatures or having banners with a text link embedded. You can even buy them; this however, carries risk as it violates Google’s Webmaster policy.
An ideal way to obtain quality backlinks for your site is by submitting blog articles to famous websites that are relevant in your niche. This not only gets you good links, but web traffic.
What are some good third-party plugins to help with Joomla SEO?
Two of the most popular plugins that you can use to help boost your SEO are Sh404sef and ArtioJoomSEF.
Sh404SEF has multiple useful features including URL management, support for platforms such as Google News, and more.
ArtioJoomSEF is pretty similar to Sh404, and also offers 301 redirects, 404 custom pages and connects easily to Google Analytics.
What is Xmap?
Xmap is a widely used plugin that is designed for use with your sitemap. It seamlessly generates XML and HTML sitemaps for your website.
How can I optimize my images?
One of the most known ways to optimize your images is to compress them to a small enough size to increase the loading speed of your pages. You can also attach relevant alt text with keywords, as well as add meaningful descriptions.
How can browser caching help my Joomla SEO?
Browser caching refers to the browser’s ability to store data required by the internet browser to load site pages. By carefully handling how your site tells browsers to store files to aid in reloading of pages, this not only improves site speed, but resource management.
How do I build consistent internal links?
Building consistent links is a sound strategy to ensure uniform, original content across all your pages. Nothing kills your SEO faster than having duplicate pages.
With that said, there are a few things to keep in mind:
- Create links to either the www. or non-www. version of your page.
- Only link to pages using a trailing slash or no trailing slash, or pages with a suffix (.html) or no suffix.
- Only link to a single version of a page, ever.
How can a blog help my website?
Blogs are the most popular and consistent way to produce new content for your site. And content that is fresh and constant is always a good metric for ranking high for SEO. Pearl Lemon recommends creating and publishing a blog at least twice a week. Don’t forget your keywords, either.
I got a good Joomla SEO ranking. How can I keep it?
Maintain your position in search engine ranking for a long time is: fully SEO-optimized information and great back-links. Try to give your site back-links as much information as impossible. If you can’t spend time to update it, just be sure that people get enough information when they visit your pages and search engines can easily find your primary keywords.
What are some advantages to Joomla?
There are several advantages to Joomla including:
- better user management
- flexibility in displaying non-standard content
- built in multilingual support.
Why should I rename my htaccess file?
Because you are going to want to enable URL rewriting to make those URLs a whole lot more attractive than they start out, you are going to need to rename the htaccess.txt file to .htaccess – which is the version used by Joomla! and mod_rewrite.
What is JCE Editor?
JCE is an abbreviation for Joomla Content Editor. As its name suggests JCE is a content editor for the Joomla CMS. It further enhances the default content management capabilities for Joomla and provides many additional options.
What is Google Search Console?
Google Search Console is a web service by Google, provided free of charge for webmasters, which allows them to check indexing status and optimize visibility of their websites.
How can I improve my meta descriptions?
You can improve your meta descriptions by carefully selecting keywords that can fit seamlessly into your titles. You can also improve your click-through rate (how many people click to your search result listing)
Should I resize my site's images?
Yes! Resizing your images allows your site to looks faster, as your site can reserve the space for your images even before the overall page loads.
How can I know if my site is mobile-friendly?
An excellent way to determine your site’s mobile-friendliness is by subjecting it to Google’s Mobile-Friendly test. Sites that favor mobile users tend to get strong results in SEO, so this is a golden opportunity to rank higher.
What are some good ways for handling content?
We at Pearl Lemon highly recommend that you separate your products and services into separate pages, as it makes your site tidier, easier to navigate for your visitors and gives Google more content to crawl and list in their search results.
How important is my footer?
Your website footer is an important piece of your Joomla website, as you can include valuable microdata such as your business’ contact information, giving Google a sound idea as to who you are when they crawl your pages.
How can I find ideal keywords?
It’s always difficult to find the right keywords to target. They are either very very competitive. Or they don’t have any traffic. How do you find the right middle ground?
In short, think like a customer. Determine the type of content they would want to see and search for. You’ll find your keywords then.
