Start Optimizing your Joomla website
To get a better website that will suite your visitors you have to begin with your structure.
If you did not write down your basic site structure , now is the best time to do this.
If you already have a website, you still want to do this from time to time.
Its al about the visitor
Start by beginning to look at your website as a new visitor, or better yet, let some one else go to your website.
Don't tell them anything about the site….see how they navigate and learn….
Changes are that you find some flaws in the structure and the way you have setup your menu in ways of placement and naming.
You really have to bring your visitor into the site, taking him, or her, by the hand and lead them gently into your product / service / information you want them to see.
Joomla Sections, categories and content items
As I wrote on this in the Joomla basics i will ask you now.
Do you want to explain this to Your visitors?
I didn't think so, unless you have a website with information about Joomla :-)
make your structure and menu choices in a way that your visitors can find there way through your site with no more than Three Clicks to get to the content.
Write down your site structure and see if you can get to the information in those three clicks.
