Joost de Valk has written a great article on his new website about WordPress and SEO, Calling it "The Definitive Guide To High Rankings For Your Blog" and I must say, he does a splendid Job in working through all the aspects of SEO for WordPress.
And indeed the Blogging world is raving about this article as well:
Here are few links:
And Yoast (that's right -> Joost ) also does a great Job in monitoring all those incoming links and as a true blogger reacting on every one of them :-)
You will know by now that I use WordPress,Drupal, Typo3 and Joomla for a number of websites, so I can related to the technical aspects of his WordPress Guide as well as the real Search Engine Optimization stuff.
And this were you can learn as an Search Engine Optimization fanatic, looking at several aspects of this guide and pick the right stuff for improving any website.
That also means Your Joomla based website.
Some of the point you can look at are:
Permalinks = Search Engine Friendly URL's
Than there is more advanced stuff and some great advice on coding and more, you can really do well if you follow his advice on:
Point 5 – Conversion Optimization
Point 6 – Comment Optimization
Point 7 – Off site site Blog SEO, like using Twitter SEO
I am looking forward to implementing some of his advice here on this Blog and on my other Joomla SEO Blog
Both are build with WordPress to Promote my Joomla sites about Joomla SEO and Open Source CMS SEO
And I must say, that Joost already has inspired me to write a similar post about Joomla and SEO, that is if you as a reader would like to see that as well, covering several technical aspect on how to do this advanced and basic SEO for Joomla.
An Other great article to read is Meet Yoast in which Joost writes about the redesign and the new domain name… also read the comments like "How does it feel to commit Technorati suicide" since your Technorati rankings won't follow you to the new domain like your FeedBurner readers will.
Thank you Yoast for a great post a great new site and insight into the basic off really well done SEO!
I have always struggled optimizing Joomla, it is a nightmare for me.
SEO Cambridge says
There are lots of ways to optimize Joomla. There plugins to create search engine friendly urls. all the navigation is html and so the internal linking lends itself to optimisation. In fact we choose to work with Joomla because it is so optimizable. You just need to do a little research to find out how to do it.
