While working on my own website looking for the right balance and SEO options the initial task was mind-boggling, to say the least. Most articles said that for the right SEO you spend a lot of time for the least amount of gain they are right to some extent. I do enjoy tweaking everything from my PC to mobile phone and hence my website as well. While I did find useful articles that gave me a greater insight none were just the right article that covers Joomla SEO. This is where this article comes in, I will show you my route to a 99% PageSpeed score and a 98% Yslow score. Remember SEO can be boring with little short-term gain, the gain is long term and better user experience. While this article covers SEO for Joomla CMS it can be used as a source for other variants of CMS's and websites. The big difference will be you will need to find some modules/plugins that are built specifically the CMS you are using.
SEO 2019 Update.
I have updated this article to reflect some changes for 2019 SEO optimization as well as some Joomla plugins and modules that have been either updated or removed altogether. If you revisit this article my overall ratings have slightly declined and I am specializing more into Google since that is the most common search engine but I also try to consider my options for other search engines such as Yahoo and Bing. My site has become more complex as well as it has grown since I wrote this article. However, the basics remain the same for the most part but I have further tweaked my site and I changed sitemap generator to OSMap and the JCH Optimization plugin to aid with the coding portion of my Joomla install.
