General SEO Best Practices for Joomla 3.0
SEO competition is getting tougher and tougher day by day and also thousands of Joomla websites are being developed everyday. So most of the Joomla users are interested in knowing "How to do SEO with Joomla?" OR "How Joomla 3.0 website can become SEO friendly?".
Joomla is a big name in CMS world so they definitely didn't forget SEO settings in this award winning CMS. So let me show you what things you can do for SEO and let me refer the most latest version Joomla 3.0.
Once you login to Joomla 3.0 admin panel and go to Global configuration, you will see SEO Settings along with Metadata settings. So let me show you some tips that can help you optimize your Joomla 3.0 website.
1. Page Title Tags
Title tags are headlines of your page so make sure, none of your page missing the title tags. Title tag should include at least one of your main keyword for that page. In Joomla 3.0, you can setup title tags using menu manager. When you create a menu item and link an article, you can see "Page Display Options" on right side from where you can create Page Title Tag.
2. Create Metadata
Metadata setting can be found in Global Configuration. You can create global site meta title, keywords and description from here. To create metadata for all pages manually, you can either use menu manager OR article manager's "Metadata options".
3. Search Engine Friendly(SEF) URLs
Default Joomla URLs are too lengthy so you have to enable SEF URLs to make search engines love your website. You can turn on SEF URLs from "SEO Settings" on right side of Global Configuration page.
4. Internal Linking
Linking one page of your website from another page is called Internal Linking. So don't forget to link relevant pages internally within your Joomla website.
5. Content and Keyword stuffing
To use too many keywords OR same keyword many times in a page is called Keyword stuffing which is unethical SEO technique and you will be punished by Google for that. So avoid keyword stuffing and always use fresh and unique content for your pages.
Sitemap is the most important factor in order to let Search Engines know how many pages your website has. So must create XML OR HTML sitemap and submit it to Google from webmaster Tools. Sitemap will help Google search engine crawlers to read your contents faster and as an effect of this, your pages will be indexed quickly.
So these are the basic and we can say general SEO practises that everyone should implement while working with Joomla. Apart from this, there are many SEO Plugins and Extensions are available in JED(Joomla Extension Directory) that you can use as per your need.
