The Joomla! 1.5 SEO book covers many SEO areas, starting from building keywords list relevant to your web site content, and the configuration of basic Joomla! SEO settings to get SEF urls for your articles, passing through optimizing the structure of your Joomla! web site and how to use the famous sh404SEF extension to get better SEF urls, ending with choosing Joomla! SEO templates and optimizing the speed and performance of your Joomla! web site.
The advantage of Joomla! 1.5 SEO book over other relevant books, is that the author is always keen to shortcut the way and tell you the multiple options for how to implement the SEO technique under study? the answer for what are the best Joomla! extensions to use is always present.
The most helpful section, of course for me, is how to use the analysis and statistics tools, such as Google Analytics, StatCounter and Alexa in the context of Joomla! web sites, specially how to exclude your visits from the statistics to get more accurate results.
The book is concluded by a comprehensive case study to make it more clearer, all the explained SEO techniques are applied to a sample web site, along with an appendix for "Joomla! robots.txt and .htaccess" diferrent uses.
Most of us don't care about robots.txt and .htaccess, although many of SEO problems are due to fault .htaccess, in addition to that, they are very important for search engines to collect accurate information and index the correct pages from your web site, the book explains deeply these important files in the context of Joomla!
