Joomla Web Design…

If your website is not powered by a Content Management (CMS) System, or you are looking to upgrade your website to maximise your internet marketing, then now may be a good time to make the change.

One of the leading CMS web design applications – Joomla – has launched its latest version, and there are lots of great features that can benefit your business. Of course Joomla 2.5 has lots of technical improvements that its worldwide community of developers and users have welcomed. But I want to look at these changes from a commercial point of view – how will the changes make your website better to use, simpler  to navigate and easier to maintain? For me, this ease of maintenance is the most important factor in choosing a CMS system. Google continues to rank websites that have regularly updated, relevant and unique content above websites that remain unchanged month-in-month out. Google does this because web users prefer updated, interesting websites. Web users like video, and a chance to engage – so Google does too! Any CMS needs to allow you to update content, add new media and engage socially. And it needs to allow you to do this without needing a degree from MIT. So one of the key advantages of Joomla 2.5 is that future upgrades can be done at the click of a button, making sure your investment in  a Joomla web design remains future proof. And another click allows you to upgrade your plug-ins too! Joomla’s worldwide community are constantly offer free plug-ins and apps that allow you to manage your site more efficiently, offer sophisticated functions to improve your user experience, and keep up with the latest SEO and social media developments. Ensuring you have the latest versions has never been easier. To make updating content easier, the administration dashboard on any Joomla web design offers an icon rich panel that makes making changes simpler. You can set up user accounts, groups, define access levels and permissions and setup mass mail functionality. Articles are a very useful tool for improving your sites visibility in search engine rankings and the new, improved Article Manager functions allows a great control in setting up categories and sub-categories to help your users – and adding articles easily. When it comes to web design and SEO software, there are many systems to choose from. But a Joomla web design using the 2.5 upgrade has made the choice for the time-pressed, non-specialist business person even easier. As one reviewer wrote: “Joomla 2.5 has taken major leaps in improving Content Management for the web. It has brought features that are the need of the hour – terrific SEO, enhanced article editing and newer templates If you found this tutorial helpful then please click the Like or Tweet button below or leave a comment.
