A conversation yesterday, with Trevor Hamilton of Unique Entertainment on his web site. Unique Entertainment do events management and conferences for corporations across Europe as well as Product Launches and Strategic Communications.
Interestingly the site built on the open source content management system Joomla which will allow Unique Entertainment to update their content themselves. So, theory is when Trevor has new photies he can add them to the Unique Entertainment Gallery.
Joomla is one of those apps I’ve dabbled briefly with but never quite got my head round and the Unique Entertainment site has gotten me wondering how it can be tweaked for SEO. A quick Google provides and search on the Joomla site provides a good few ideas.
One of the key things to think about here is how to ensure that people looking for Unique Entertainment’s contact details get pointed through to the actual Unique Entertainment site rather than all the other potential links that this name is associated with. Market Samurai throws up a lot of potential confusion here so it’s not an easy one.
Thus, if anyone has any ideas on the SEO question and Joomla, please do let me know.

I have heard great things about Joomla, but WordPress seems to be taking the spotlight. On a few projects I had done for me, Joomla came up, but we never used it and coded from scratch.
I may just download it and build something basic to see what it is all about.
Did the same for an online e-magazine but the complexity was more than I needed so decided a WordPress route would be better. Joomla is a very powerful tool. It provides Unique Entertainment with a sophisticated site and the ability to quickly update it without high-level of technical expertise, which is what 99% of people in this world want.
I use the Joomla CMS a lot and I personally think it's a good platform for creating search engine optimised websites. To create a search engine optimised site in Joomla you basically need to install a number of extensions, the key ones being sh404sef, the Breast Cancer Awareness RSS Syndicator and Joomap or Xmap.
