Performance video on Udemy.com (FREE!!!)
I just released an extensive 3.5 hour video course on the Udemy marketplace about Joomla Performance and Speed! This training gives you an immense wealth of knowledge about the subject.
Joomla is the perfect CMS to build an SEO friendly website, even without plugins. However, like many other CMS's, it needs tuning and tweaking to perform well. We teach you all the tricks needed: some basic, some more advanced. Next to SEO we also focus on site-speed and tools to audit your SEO efforts.
All the tutorials on this site are completely free to access. And if you're really interested, the Joomla SEO Book I've written might appeal to you, with even more detailed information.
These tutorials are all about SEO: optimizing Joomla to perform well in search engines. Topics covered: Joomla core settings, metadata, sitemaps, duplicate content, etc.
Site performance allows your visitors to browse happily through your site, but it also leads to better conversion, and can even lead to higher rankings.
With extensions and plugins you can enhance your SEO efforts even more. We review some of the best known SEO extensions, focussing on ones that are free.
Audit tools are useful for those that are absolutely serious about SEO. They allow you to monitor your site's performance very closely, checking stuff like on-site SEO, rankings, etc.
