Html-coded websitesAre you having an old fashioned html-coded website? Are you getting tired of asking your web-developer to make changes for your website instead of being able to make the changes yourself? Is your web-developer telling you he is busy and it will take some time for them to add the changed? And especially, are you tired of paying the bills after your web-developer has done the changes? Or are you perhaps just considering opening new website to the internet? If you say YES to any of these questions then this is for you!

Why not choose html-coded website?

The difference of old fashioned html-coded website and Content Management System (CSM) is the possibility to edit and add Internet website content without knowing html-code. While there are still those supporting making your Internet website from scratch it is definitely outdated way of doing Internet website! Why? It takes more time and money to code everything by yourself (or by web-developer). And time and money is what most of us do not have excess. Also using html-coded website means you are dependent on the web-developer or someone with ability to edit html-code. But what are you options?

Why choose Joomla Content Management System?

1) Save money by choosing Joomla

What are Top 5 reasons to choose Joomla?By using Joomla CMS you can save many ways. You can either choose one of the thousands, fancy and professional, ready-made Joomla Templates and save in web-site layout design costs. One professional template is about 50€ when website layout design can cost anything from 1000€ upwards (normally around 2000-2500€). If you want to have your own layout and still use Content Management System it can be done by using f.ex. Rockettheme Gantry Framework and adding your own website layout to Joomla. Coding a Joomla template instead of regular html-template will give you savings at least in the maintaining costs.

You can save money by being able add content and do changes to your Internet website by yourself or by you employee. This means you do not have to employ web-developer each time you want to edit/add to your website. In a long run this brings huge savings in your company website costs!

You can save by not needing expensive programs, since Joomla has no License fees. Also most of the extensions are without License fees, so get functions without high expenses.

2) Save time by choosing Joomla

NO need to ask from  your web-developer when THEY have time to make new changes to your website! You can edit and add content on your website yourself or have a team of website editors in the company. No need to wait for the web-developer to do the changes. Make the changes immediately by yourself or by any one of the website editors in the company.

Save time by adding content by simply writing text, not text and html-code!

3) Makes it possible to add/edit your website content without knowledge of html-code

Do you think you need an expensive html/css/php coding course to be able to edit your website? No need for that! You can edit Joomla website without any knowledge of computer codes! Adding a blog article to your website requires only that you know how to write text. Everyone knows how to write text! That is how simple adding a blog article to your Joomla website is. No coding is needed! It’s fast and it’s simple to add content to your Joomla website!

4) Add functions to your website – flexibility

There are over 8000 Joomla extensions (add-ons bring different functions) for Joomla websites. This gives you endless possibilities when it comes to adding different functions to your website. No need to use money for expensive web-developing and making your own website functions. It is already ready! Most of Joomla Extensions are free or practically free. Make your website functionable, interactive!

5) Strong community gives Safety and regular security updates

Some consider Open Source programs to be unsafe – Joomla is definitely not!  Joomla has a community of over 200 000 users. This means over 200 000 testers for each Joomla version. Possible loopholes and problems are detected fast. Due to many web-developers taking part in the Joomla develpment the security updates are received regularly and without a delay. What other CMS can brag having over 200 000 test-users?

By keeping your website up-to-date you can make sure your website is more safe! With extensions like Joomla Update Manager you can install new Joomla versions with a click of a mouse! It’s that easy to update your Joomla version. Make sure your extensions are up-to-date too!

Should you choose Joomla CMS or some other CSM system?Why not some other CMS system?

But hey, can’t I use WordPress or Drupal? Sure you can, but remember that WordPress is a blog-system, not really a website system. It has much less funtions and addons available. What comes to Drupal, you need to be a website developer with knowledge of css/html-codes to be able to use Drupal effectively. So Joomla is definitely the most flexible and still easy to use Content Management system. It is not just a blogging system, but an actual website Content Management System.

Our new Blog will bring out details of how you can make your webpages more Search Engine Friendly (SEF). We will give also hints about Free Open Source programs and different Free Internet Services. Close to our heart is expecially  Joomla Content Management System and it’s Extentions and also Linux Operating System and Linux Servers.

For Serach Engine Friendly affect many different things. You have maybe heard of Metawords,  Google AdSence campaigns, Facebook-advertisement, Twitter and many other Sosial Media services. Where to start and to what concentrate? That is a Million Dollar Question! What is good for one is not neccessary good for the other. Each situations have to be considered separately, but what is normally the start is functional webpages.

Why would you need your own webpages? You have maybe heard the saying  “If you are not in the Internet you do not exist!” The majority of people search information of companies and services and even of other people from the Internet. Most of them use Google Search Engine funtion.  That is why we have a new word “to google” in otherwords serach information through Google.  Even retired older people learn how to use the Internet. There are even classes to teach them – on a slower pace – how to use the net.

Lesson Nr. 1 for Search Engine Friendly Site is that you need to have your own webpages and they need to be such that you can add META words and META Description to the site. Meta description should be maximum 160 marks long. It should tell briefly what your pages are all about.  Google will show those Meta description in their search results below your webpage address.

Metawords i.e. search-word are words that pages are searched from Google. Words should be in line with the texts on your webpages. Same words should be found from the Headings and texts in general. Why?  Google will read the metawords and then compare them to the texts on your site and headings. If the same words are found in the texts Google will give higher points to your site. If metawords do not correspond to the texts and headings of your site Google might start to poikot your site in their search results. So make sure you have the important Metawords both in your site texts and headings and the Metawords definitions.

I want to get a fancy Flash webpages! Why not? Flash is fancy and a nice addition to the site, but it is not recommendable to use Flash as the only means of doing your webpages. Why? Flash code is like Hebrew to the Search Engines. Yes, sure Google can read the texts in between all that Flash code. But Flash sites are never in the top place in the search engine results. Google cannot make links between different parts of a Flash site to another page on the flash site. So all links lead to the front page and frontpage only. If you want to have Flash-type featured to your site it is better to add such features as a part of a clearer Content Management Site as Joomla.

What is a Content Management Site? Content Management site is a site that is done by using a Content Management Program. Using such does not require that you know html-code. What, do you mean webpages can be done without knowing any html-code? Yes I do! That is exactly what I mean! If you are offered webpages that must be coded from the start to the finish it is time to whistle the game over.   Time for such old fashioned sites is over! Today the site should be done with a system that makes editing the site easy. If your site requires that you learn html-code the the time for your site is definitely over.  You must be able to edit your site without that you need to ask help from an IT professional. That is how websites should be today, if your webpage is not yet like that it is time to change your partner. You will save time and money on a long run when you can make small changes to your site yourself.

There are many Content Management Systems but we will be concentrating to Joomla Content Management System. Why Joomla? Joomla has a community of over 200000 users. Joomla Community tests and takes part actively to the development of Joomla. What commercial program can brag with a community of over  200000 testers? This Joomla community is a strenght that others do not have. Over 5000 Joomla Extentions already tell us how versatile program Joomla is.

Joomla has many Search Engine Friendly features. Each page can have Metawords and Meta description (Article/Article Manager). This way Google can direct visitors directly to other pages also than only the Frontpage. You can add Share in Facebook, Twitter and other Social Media extensions. World is open or should we say “Internet is open”. More about the topic in the next blog!
