What we offer

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.

All the blogs and 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.
