Good page rank is important to all of us and after reading the many forum posts on Joomla (some quite heated) re: SEO or SEF as they seem to refer to it. Joomla seems to be found lacking (plus those ugly urls Joomla creates).
I have read your ebook on SEO and your comments on SEF both free and 3rd party. You seem to imply (after trial and error) not to bother with anything other than the built in version.
IÂ’m new to Joomla so, the question I have is, if the purpose of my site is to get good page rank and generate Google Adsense revenue as opposed to just getting a business site up. Do you think Site Build It is the better option? Each page has targeted keywords with SBI not so much with Joomla.
Less functionality than Joomla but the SBI sites seem to have greater page rank success than the majority of Joomla sites IÂ’ve visited.
I already have a lot of content ready, I am just now making the choice as to which platform I should invest my time in and I would appreciate your viewpoint as I can tell you have a lot of knowledge in this areaÂ…
P.S Thank you for the great knowledge you have shared already, IÂ’ve learnt a lot from what you have already provided about Joomla.
A great question from Adam, he is asking in a nutshell, whatÂ’s the best way to Â“beat the systemÂ”. The short answer is you canÂ’t. Here was my reply:
I have mentioned several times in various articles and postings, content is king. There are many posts at forum.joomla.org about people trying to get a 3rd party SEF to work. Their time would be much better spent generating unique quality content.
