Google Doesn't Care How You Build Your Website
How your website ranks on search engines is important to your business, but the specific details about how this happens is a trade secret of search engine companies (Google, Bing). Not unlike other ideas and concepts that people don't really understand, there are excessive amounts misinformation and myths about search engine optimization (ranking higher on search engines) floating around. Unfortunately, many of these myths get passed around as true.
Thanks for a great 2015 from your friends at CreativeSights
2015 was a fantastic year for us. We're looking forward to a great 2016 and all the fantastic businesses and organizations we'll help with improved websites.
Reviewing Thoughts from February 2012
I just had one more person favorite this post I made back in February 2012 in response to someone who was questioning if they should really go through the trouble to migrate from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 2.5.
Now that the Joomla!™ Community is moving quickly towards version 3.4 and 1.5 is now depricated, I liked what I wrote way back then and thought is was worth sharing here:
In its third year, the Joomla! World Conference returns to bring together the worldwide Joomla! Community for three days of learning, connecting, and sharing.
This year on November 7-9 at the Grand Oasis Cancun in Cancun, Mexico the brightest Joomla! minds come together to share their experiences, connect with others, and learn more about Joomla! and its community.
While we prefer custom designs, here are some excellent options for those looking to save money.
When someone says a site "looks like a Joomla!™ site", we cringe. Joomla!™ has a huge advantage over the other CMS platforms with the easy and functional nature of its template system, so with a little bit of work, a Joomla!™ site can look like anything.
Even for the less skilled or basic users, there are hundreds of companies in the market right now who are producing templates (and template frameworks) for Joomla!™
Additionally, some of these companies offer clubs - meaning that instead of buying one template on an as needed basis, there's an option to buy a subscription or "join the club". Membership in the template club usually provides unlimited access to support and downloads for every template the club offers.
Here are some of the better ones:
