Hey everybody,

There seems to be alot of contreversial opinions about how SEO friendly a joomla site would be ... By this I mean: how well a joomla site can be optimized for search engines ...

Can anyone tell me where the limits are ? And maybe how joomla compares to the SEO friendlyness of other open source (or even commercial) cmsses ?

Every search engine uses other indexing techniques.
The technique of indexing is a well kept secret.
and the indexing technique changes a lot.
So, there's no one-fits-all solution!

Joomla does a lot of SEO (like the usage of the title of the page into the browser title bar). But a lot of SEO has to be done by writing the articles on your site. You can use a lot of SEO techniques of a CMS, but when text of the articles is not well thought of (regarding SEO) there's not much to gain.

You guys need to stop beting around the bush with politicaly correct and over analytical answers and tell this poor guy the truth. Joomla or Mambo is horrible for Google optimization (and others). If you've got a site that's even half decently well ranking and you decide to cut over to joomla you will cry for many many many months.

I've ported 7 clients over to this platform and have even kept their old URL structures but joomla's duplicate content ID problems and constant database breaking of SEF URLS will send you right were you don't need to be in SERPS.. the bottom..

You should look into another CMS if SEF is a big consern of yours and revisit joomla down the line, as most of these problems are being worked on to be fixed.

The question was "how well a joomla site can be optimized for search engines". I tried to explain that there are a lot of different Search Engines that all have their own indexing techniques, so there's no best SEO method for all.

In your message you only go into Google as search engine with your statement that "Joomla or Mambo is horrible for Google optimization". Of course Google is currently (one of) the major Search Engine, but what about the other search engines?

Here I fully disagree with you. SEF and components like OpenSEF can improve SEO a lot....
But again, there's NO best SEO solution as every search engine uses it's own indexing techniques. And a lot depends on the text you use in your articles forms a great part of the SEO.

then I hope someone can answer my question about the main page joomla links because as it stands I can not take the site live with 3 different instances of the front page. That is a major search engine problem across all search engines.

What CMS would you recommend if SEF is a big consern?

There are not as feature rich or easy to use but I know some very well ranking site that use:

drupal, typo3 or if you want to go really easy and simple to use and is great for SEF try Movable Type.

Maybe I should have been more precise in my question pe7er ; I am well aware of different SEO techniques across different searchengines. Google though, is the major free searchengine in wich sites would usually like to position themselves well. Content is always king and writing a good copy is only part of good SEO practise, since Google predominantly asigns pagerank as a result of link-popularity.

Aside from that, page-structure plays a major role too and I've heard that spiders are having trouble digging into a joomla / mambo site. I would like to know why and if there's something that can be done about that.

My question should have probably been : in what way(s) is a joomla optimized site (with correct use of all resources such as components a.s.o.) limited compared to a 'staticly / standalone / or whatever you want to call it) site in regard of maximum SEO across most the popular engines ?

Since SEO is a MAJOR concern for me I'd like to know the weaknesses and how (and if it's worth it) to overcome them.

Grts,
Gdev

Joomla & SEO (for Google):
  • Joomla places the title of an article automatically in the tag.
  • It does not automatically use

    , but you can define that yourself in .css and use it for your keywords.

  • Hyperlinks: place keywords in tag for the links at your site.</li><li>Folders & images names: use keywords in the names, just like non-CMS systems.</li><li>SEF components can give you nice URLs with keywords included.</li><li>Joomla can generate Meta tags. However nowadays irrelevant for indexing.</li></ul><br />The disavantage of Joomla and of all CMS regarding SEO:<br />In general, keywords near the <body> tag are considered more important then others. <br />The text (with your keywords) of an article only starts halfway the html page, and not near the <body> tag. <br />That's because the modules (like menu's) are loaded before the article is.<br /><br />Anyone else some other thoughts?</div> <div class="postbody"><br />_________________<br />Kind Regards,<br /><strong>Peter Martin</strong>, Global Moderator - Community Leadership Team<br /><!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.db8.nl">http://www.db8.nl</a><!-- m --> - Joomla specialist, Nijmegen, Nederland<br />Joomla 2.5 multilanguage in 10 steps: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.db8.nl/en/joomla-presentations/multilanguage-website">http://www.db8.nl/en/joomla-presentatio ... ge-website</a><!-- m --></div> <br clear="all" /><br /> <table width="100%" cellspacing="0"> <tr valign="middle"> <td class="gensmall" align="right"> </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> <tr class="row1"> <td class="profile"><strong><a href="#wrapheader">Top</a></strong></td> <td><div class="gensmall" style="float: left;">  <a href="./memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=471&sid=9196c8c63ae957262c98b06877252ca0"><img src="./styles/joomla09/imageset/en/icon_user_profile.gif" width="72" height="20" alt="Profile" title="Profile" /></a>  </div> <div class="gensmall" style="float: right;">  </div></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="spacer" colspan="2" height="1"><img src="images/spacer.gif" alt="" width="1" height="1" /></td> </tr> </table> <table class="tablebg" width="100%" cellspacing="1"> <tr class="row2"> <td align="center" valign="middle"> <a name="p238954"></a> <a href="./memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=51&sid=9196c8c63ae957262c98b06877252ca0"><b class="postauthor">gram</b></a> </td> <td width="100%" height="25"> <table width="100%" cellspacing="0"> <tr> <td class="gensmall" width="100%"><div style="float: left;"> <b>Post subject:</b> <a href="#p238954">Re: How SEO friendly is joomla ?</a></div><div style="float: right;"><a href="./viewtopic.php?p=238954&sid=9196c8c63ae957262c98b06877252ca0#p238954"><img src="./styles/joomla09/imageset/icon_post_target.gif" width="12" height="9" alt="Post" title="Post" /></a><b>Posted:</b> Tue Mar 07, 2006 3:55 pm </div></td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> <tr class="row2"> <td valign="top" class="profile"> <table cellspacing="4" align="center" width="150"> <tr> <td class="postdetails">Joomla!

Alternatively, you could use a regular content item as your front page, and make sure it is not accessible via any of your other menu items.  It simply needs to be the first menu item on the main menu.  I would suggest making a section and category just for it, not adding that section or category to any other menu item, then making that menu item the very first selection on your main menu.  If you want to make it even better (only one way to get there, "http://yourdomain.com/") move the main menu to a unused template position and recreate the main menu under a different menu name for site usage.  That way the only link available to that front page item will be the domain name, or domain name +index.php.<br /><br />The key here is going to be getting a template that is SEO friendly.  Menus on the right side of the content or CSS used to place content first in spite of placement.  If you check my link in my sig to the SAM code team website, you will see that our content comes first (in the html), menus come after that.  The header has a very small amount of text (that relates to our site purpose) and a primary site menu (four or five links).  This gets our content much closer to the <body> tag and helps tremendously.<br /><br />I wish content titles would be encapsulated in H1 tags, but that could potentially break sites that do not use this methodology.  It would be nice to have that as an option in our admin utlilities.  I use pe7er's method of using them myself within relevant content items when appropriate.<br /><br />To search engines, title, first 300 or so words after body tag, and keyword density are king.  Keyword density should be within normal test that adheres to proper grammer rules.  Trying to overdue it (use keywords too much) or using them out of context to proper grammer to try and capture search phrases will get a page blocked, so don't do it (don't ask how I know that...).<br /><br />To get a reasonable page rank (best results in SERPS) you need good one way links back to your site.  Reciprocal links tend to get discounted or not counted.  The links need to have names that use your targetted keywords or phrases.  The search engines will use them to rank your site for searches that contain the same keywords or phrases.<br /><br />Internal links within your site are measured as well.  Based on the same criteria.  The more pages your site has, that are within one or two clicks of your home page, the better.  Their links will count as 'votes' for your site and help to increase its rank.  Get a good site map utility and its link to a menu that is shown on every page.  That way every page on your site is within a couple of clicks of every other page.  So if a page gets ranked well, its votes will help increase the votes for other pages.<br /><br />This process takes a long time.  The search engines move very slowely with respect to changes on a website, and can take a very long time to initially index the site.<br /><br />I would disagree with only one thing posted by per7er, and that is the use of meta tags.  We all know that the meta keywords tag has become nearly obsolete, but the meta description is still relevant and used a lot.  Make good use of it, and avoid putting a long windy one in for the whole site.  Use the meta descriptions in the articles for better searchability.  Keep this combined (whole site plus individual page meta descriptions) down to about 250 words.  If you get a search hit from a title alone, this will tend to be what the search requestor will see for the page text on many search engines.<br /><br />DON'T ignore the opportunity to use image alt tags to your benefit.  They are a great place to include search phrases to help increase keyword density.  Use them.<br /><br />My sincerest apologies for the long post.  This is a REAL deep subject, and there are many good websites devoted exclusively to addressing it.<br /><br />GRAM<br /><br /> </div> <div class="postbody"><br

I can get Joomla sites up and running with no problems and can even get creative and have even resorted to manually editing things in the database when needed. However, I know one thing about code - and that's that I know nothing! This is why I don't want to use SEF URL's. I have problems troubleshooting issues if/when they arise to broken links. I find it safer to stick with standard urls.<br /><br />My new Joomla site has just debuted last week in Google at number 3 for a search on our two main keywords which is great. Ironically, our page rank is 0. Yahoo, NineMSN and Altavista (Australia) rank us at #1. I will note that NineMSN didn't rank us so high until Google did. I have noticed this before.<br /><strong><br />I have some questions:</strong><br /><br /><ul><li>It seems Google has not spidered our entire site, just the front page. Is this normal for a first crawl? Is there a way of checking this for sure?</li><li>How does Google treat the <prev - next> links in an article. If I have a content item that is 5 pages long, does Google rank the 5th page lower than the 1st page because it is 'deeper' in the site?</li><li>If I write good copy will this outweigh the SEF URL's issue?</li><li>Should I rename my templates slices to include keywords?</li></ul><br />Despite the reading and all the suggested techniques, I still come up trumps on so many issues, it seems SEO is quite subjective. This isn't really a surprise as  most search engine algorithms are a trade secret.

Joomla or Mambo is horrible for Google optimization (and others). If you've got a site that's even half decently well ranking and you decide to cut over to joomla you will cry for many many many months. <br /><br />I've ported 7 clients over to this platform and have even kept their old URL structures but joomla's duplicate content ID problems and constant database breaking of SEF URLS will send you right were you don't need to be in SERPS.. the bottom.. <br /><br />You should look into another CMS if SEF is a big consern of yours and revisit joomla down the line, as most of these problems are being worked on to be fixed. <br /></div><br /><br />Wow. Disgruntle? <br /><br />Well, I hereby vehemently disagree with your views. And this despite the pros and cons of several new sites I am working on, which after only being up for several weeks enjoy Google search engine referrals. One of these sites was simply forgotten by Google several weeks back, but in return has gained equally greater results by MSN and Yahoo. I'd prefer Google traffic, but 100 visitors a day from Google is just as good as 100 visitors a day from MSN.<br /><br />And if one was to take your advice and go with another CMS, their options would be considerably limited by many accounts. Furthermore, to suggest that a person ought to later revisit Joomla is only suggesting that it would be worth redeveloping the entire site, which is contrary to your own SEF URL logic, as the URLs would all change. <br /><br />Stick with Joomla and Open-SEF as your platform and work your way deeper into application bliss from there. Before loading additional components, consider their popularity as an indicator of its long-term viability.<br /><br />P.S. I'm not really vehement in this reply, but consider toning it down a bit, dude.

Part of this is because I have come across so many sites that stick them in the most obtrusive position. I also find they can obscure content. It's no point having a great article if people leave the page because of a great big chunk of Google Ads. I will admit however, that as webmasters become more 'in tune' with their site visitors, some are using them more effectively.

Content, content content...<br /><br /><strong>Content, keywords and links</strong><br />Pageranking is way less importent than search engine ranking on keyword. Yes your search enige ranking is higher with a good pagerank and sometimes that is really importent on some keywords. The only way to get a high PR is loads of quality links to your website.<br /><br />The first page a user or SE usually sees is your frontpage. Use a good text with keywords that define your website. Very importent because links from other websites are usualy to your frontpage too. That page gets the high pagerank so that page should have the keywords.<br /><br />So content, keywords and links. Thats what it's all about. <br /><br /><strong>Other (unmentioned) factors than come in play</strong><br /><ul><li>Age of the content</li><li>Total site size</li><li>Uptime of the website</li><li>Time to load</li><li>Number of outgoing links (and PR of the websites you link to)</li><li>Number of userclick on keyword in SE results (compared to others listed obove and below you</li></ul><br /><strong>Page and layout?</strong><br />Page/code layout? Hardley a factor. Do you really think that google can 'look' at your site. They can index code. Thats a different thing. And nice and valid code is more easy to read. Where you place your content (in the code or on you screen) doesn't really matter at all.<br /><br /><strong>Other factors</strong><br />Alt tags, title tags, H1 Bold an Underlined text, page titles, meta's, urls etc. Those are factors too.<br /><br /><strong>Back to the content</strong> <br />You want to write something that your visitors will find attractive. Visiters can find stuff by searching with keywords. Make sure those keywords can be found in your text.<br />Is you are listed in de searchresults of a user, make sure your site stands out. Good title tag, with a good description of the content.<br /><br /><strong>Last thoughts</strong><br />How many visitors do you want. You can have a 1000 visiters a day but if they leave your site after seeing the frontpage, than a 1000 visitors bring you noting... I rather have 50 visitors that read 5 or maybe 20 pages, and read it for 1 minute a page. Users find you on keywords they stay on content....</div> <div class="postbody"><br />_________________<br />Joomla insite</div> <br /><br /> <span class="gensmall">Last edited by <a href="./memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=3683&sid=9196c8c63ae957262c98b06877252ca0">MarkV</a> on Fri Jul 21, 2006 8:41 am, edited 1 time in total.</span> <br clear="all" /><br /> <table width="100%" cellspacing="0"> <tr valign="middle"> <td class="gensmall" align="right"> </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> <tr class="row2"> <td class="profile"><strong><a href="#wrapheader">Top</a></strong></td> <td><div class="gensmall" style="float: left;">  <a href="./memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=3683&sid=9196c8c63ae957262c98b06877252ca0"><img src="./styles/joomla09/imageset/en/icon_user_profile.gif" width="72" height="20" alt="Profile" title="Profile" /></a>  </div> <div class="gensmall" style="float: right;">  </div></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="spacer" colspan="2" height="1"><img src="images/spacer.gif" alt="" width="1" height="1" /></td> </tr> </table> <table class="tablebg" width="100%" cellspacing="1"> <tr class="row1"> <td align="center" valign="middle"> <a name="p402690"></a> <a href="./memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=8570&sid=9196c8c63ae957262c98b06877252ca0"><b class="postauthor">mdb76</b></a> </td> <td width="100%" height="25"> <table width="100%" cellspacing="0"> <tr> <td class="gensmall" width="100%"><div style="float: left;"> <b>Post subject:</b> <a href="#p402690">Re: How SEO friendly is joomla ?</a></div><div style="float: right;"><a href="./viewtopic.php?p=402690&sid=9196c8c63ae957262c98b06877252ca0#p402690"><img src="./styles/joomla09/imageset/icon_post_target.gif" width="12" height="9" alt="Post" title="Post" /></a><b>Posted:</b> Wed Jul 19, 2006 12:43 pm </div></td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> <tr class="row1"> <td valign="top" class="profile"> <table cellspacing="4" align="center" width="150"> <tr> <td><a href="./memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=8570&sid=9196c8c63ae957262c98b06877252ca0"><img src="http://www.mamedubois.com.au/images/avatar.jpg" width="49" height="65" alt="User avatar" /></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="postdetails">Joomla!

but will have to be re-added with each upgrade) perhaps in a your template's index.php looking for the long form url to the front page component.  If this url is requested, the browser can be permanently redirected to the domain name alone (<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://yourdomainname.com">http://yourdomainname.com</a><!-- m -->).  Google will then dutifully assign (in time) the page rank aquired under the long form to the domain name alone.  <br /><br />I would suggest you also be sure that every single page on your site have a link back your domain name alone.  I do this by linking the site name at the top of every site back to the domain name alone.  I also create a new 'home' link somewhere on each page (in a menu or in the template) that links back to the domain name.<br /><br />And final word, its not unusual to see pages within a site rank higher than the home page.  (1) thats one reason why you want every page to link back to your home page, (2)apparently that page has more high quality links coming back to you from somewhere else and from Google's point of view it earned a higher rank.<br /><br />Sorry for long response, but its a deep topic.<br /><br />Good luck !<br /><br />GRAM</div> <div class="postbody"><br />_________________<br />GRAM<br /><a href="http://coders.mlshomequest.com/" class="postlink">http://coders.mlshomequest.com/</a> < -- Developer of samSiteMap component</div> <br clear="all" /><br /> <table width="100%" cellspacing="0"> <tr valign="middle"> <td class="gensmall" align="right"> </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> <tr class="row1"> <td class="profile"><strong><a href="#wrapheader">Top</a></strong></td> <td><div class="gensmall" style="float: left;">  <a href="./memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=51&sid=9196c8c63ae957262c98b06877252ca0"><img src="./styles/joomla09/imageset/en/icon_user_profile.gif" width="72" height="20" alt="Profile" title="Profile" /></a>  </div> <div class="gensmall" style="float: right;">  </div></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="spacer" colspan="2" height="1"><img src="images/spacer.gif" alt="" width="1" height="1" /></td> </tr> </table> <table class="tablebg" width="100%" cellspacing="1"> <tr class="row2"> <td align="center" valign="middle"> <a name="p643996"></a> <a href="./memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=1429&sid=9196c8c63ae957262c98b06877252ca0"><b class="postauthor">alan-s</b></a> </td> <td width="100%" height="25"> <table width="100%" cellspacing="0"> <tr> <td class="gensmall" width="100%"><div style="float: left;"> <b>Post subject:</b> <a href="#p643996">Re: How SEO friendly is joomla ?</a></div><div style="float: right;"><a href="./viewtopic.php?p=643996&sid=9196c8c63ae957262c98b06877252ca0#p643996"><img src="./styles/joomla09/imageset/icon_post_target.gif" width="12" height="9" alt="Post" title="Post" /></a><b>Posted:</b> Sun Jan 14, 2007 7:08 pm </div></td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> <tr class="row2"> <td valign="top" class="profile"> <table cellspacing="4" align="center" width="150"> <tr> <td><a href="./memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=1429&sid=9196c8c63ae957262c98b06877252ca0"><img src="./download/file.php?avatar=1429_1294104492.png" width="50" height="50" alt="User avatar" /></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="postdetails">Joomla!

I borrowed for a8ejoomla for accessibility purposes (brief was WAI Priority 2 where possible -pretty pleased actually <img src="./images/smilies/wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" />).<br /><br />After reading this thread I did a quick google and was surprised to find the new site already indexed and rating number 2 on its main acronym search ('ARI' - stands for Allotments Regeneration Initiative). This is without using SEF native to Joomla! I think probably the keyword density and logical heading tags structure helps but the menus come before the content, breaking another useful recommendation in this thread. It seems a dark art with shifting goal posts but I am convinced that accessible designs and a bit of help from a8ejoomla has helped this site(no hard evidence but intuition and experience). Question is will it get worse with SEF?! <img src="./images/smilies/smiley.gif" alt=":)" title="Smiley" /></div> <div class="postbody"><br />_________________<br />if you don't know where you're going you are bound to end up somewhere....<br /><br />Please read forum rules regarding signatures: <!-- l --><a class="postlink-local" href="http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?t=65">viewtopic.php?t=65</a><!-- l --></div> <br clear="all" /><br /> <table width="100%" cellspacing="0"> <tr valign="middle"> <td class="gensmall" align="right"> </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> <tr class="row2"> <td class="profile"><strong><a href="#wrapheader">Top</a></strong></td> <td><div class="gensmall" style="float: left;">  <a href="./memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=1429&sid=9196c8c63ae957262c98b06877252ca0"><img src="./styles/joomla09/imageset/en/icon_user_profile.gif" width="72" height="20" alt="Profile" title="Profile" /></a>  </div> <div class="gensmall" style="float: right;">  </div></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="spacer" colspan="2" height="1"><img src="images/spacer.gif" alt="" width="1" height="1" /></td> </tr> </table> <table class="tablebg" width="100%" cellspacing="1"> <tr class="row1"> <td align="center" valign="middle"> <a name="p645191"></a> <a href="./memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=87829&sid=9196c8c63ae957262c98b06877252ca0"><b class="postauthor">dgenie</b></a> </td> <td width="100%" height="25"> <table width="100%" cellspacing="0"> <tr> <td class="gensmall" width="100%"><div style="float: left;"> <b>Post subject:</b> <a href="#p645191">Re: How SEO friendly is joomla ?</a></div><div style="float: right;"><a href="./viewtopic.php?p=645191&sid=9196c8c63ae957262c98b06877252ca0#p645191"><img src="./styles/joomla09/imageset/icon_post_target.gif" width="12" height="9" alt="Post" title="Post" /></a><b>Posted:</b> Mon Jan 15, 2007 2:58 pm </div></td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> <tr class="row1"> <td valign="top" class="profile"> <table cellspacing="4" align="center" width="150"> <tr> <td class="postdetails">Joomla!
