Want to support this site? Buy my E-book: Joomla 3.5 SEO & Performance!

The Joomla SEO checklist provides a checklist with a potential workflow to follow when you are building a Joomla website that needs to be optimized for Google and other search engines. The checklist is a mix of articles that cover basic SEO guidelines, along with very Joomla specific tips. The order of the articles is pretty arbitrary, so feel free to do things in your own preferred order.

More experienced Joomla administrators will likely jump to their specific article of interest.
