This book is aimed at Joomla enthusiasts and professionals who want to increase the number of visitors totheir Joomla websites by improving their performance in search engines such asGoogle, Bing, and Yahoo!. This meansnot onlyranking high but also improving the presence of asite in the search pages.

Organic search does not just mean getting a high rank in Google, it is also about being noticed on the search pages. If the result for your site stands out in a positive way, people might be more inclined to click it, even when yours is not the first site on the page, but the third or fourth.

This ebook is written for Joomla 3, but it can be used perfectly for Joomla 2.5 as well. It will show you how to optimize your Joomla website for search engines: first, by using only the Joomla core options and, later in the book, with extensions, includinga chapter dedicated to SH404SEF, which is probably the most popular full search engine optimization/search engine friendly (SEO/SEF) extension for Joomla. (Beginners can skip this chapter, as the book does not hingeon this subject.)
