Google ranking and sitemaps

Web Design - Google ranking and sitemaps

Google is always changing the way they rank sites - there are hundreds of updates to their algorithm every year.

But, despite all the changes, Google's #1 recommendation has always been to have an up-to-date, valid XML Sitemap. If you aren't creating a sitemap and maintain it on a regular basis, you could be missing out on rankings - not only for your main website pages, but also for the niche pages that can rank best to bring in long-tail traffic.

Don't despair, there is an easy, elegant & cost effective solution!

As our existing clients with a Joomla website know we install by default a component called JSitemap Pro.

Wordpress Content Management System

Wordpressing your way

Wordpress has become over the years one of the popular website creation tools. Originally being primarily a blogging tool the community has helped to expand it to a content management system (CMS) also.

We still would consider WordPress as a tool that has its forte on the blogging side. However a huge community of developers turn it into a very attractive solution for a lot of businesses.
