Improve Your Search Ranking by Adding Metadata to Your Template
Monday, March 15th 7 pm CST
(Tuesday, March 16th 00:00 UTC)
Bruce Moore will show how to choose a Joomla template and modify it to improve your search ranking--quickly. Google uses schema.org metadata to help parse a site, but some Joomla templates don't do a good job of putting adding these metadata tags to your pages and as a result don't rank well quickly.
Bruce ran for a local office in 2020 and had to build a website that would rank first quickly without costly search words--instead of a prominent person in the same town with the same name who Google initially ranked for all of page one. By paying close attention to metadata and SEO, Bruce's page ranked first within about 30 days, and stayed there through the election.
This session will show you how to evaluate templates for metadata use, and how to modify an existing template to improve metadata use and SEO.
