Higher Rankings and Basic SEO for Your Joomla 3.0 Website

Search Engine Friendly URLs

In Joomla, part of the URLs are pulled from the menu aliases, so you have to keep in mind the website’s information architecture as this will affect your URL structure (i.e.: http://www.example.com/classes/music/).

When Google crawls your website, it looks at the keywords in the website’s URLs so it is essential to include keywords in the URLs. You should enable the Search Engine Friendly URLs setting to avoid having a link that doesn’t make sense to neither humans and nor search engines (i.e.: http://www.example.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1).

You should ask your hosting provider which type of web server you are using and follow the instructions provided in the Joomla documentation for your particular web server.

Redirect www to http://

Search engines see the URLs www.example.com and http://example.com as two separate websites causing your page rank to be split. You also run the risk of Google considering the two websites duplicate content. The way to avoid this in Joomla is to redirect the non-www to www. This is done in the .htaccesss file. You should follow the Suggested Master htaccess fileprovided in the Joomla documentation.

On-page Optimization for Joomla Articles

Title Tag

A title tag determines what the page is about. They also appear on the Search Engine Ranking Pages (SERP), so make sure to write a title that encourages the searcher to click on it. In Joomla, if you want to point to an article, you have to assign a menu item to it; therefore, title tags are also created under menu.

You can add a customized title tag by:

  1. Editing the menu item
  2. Click on Page Display Options
  3. Type in your title in the field Browser Page Title

Keep in mind that Google takes time after you change it to reflect changes. Also, make sure the title is less than 70 characters, as this is the limit Google displays in search results.

Improving your Website Performance

Speed counts on the web, and by using CacheFly for your website you can deliver your website up to 10x faster than traditional hosting.

   Whether you’re looking to increase your revenue by increasing visitor retention, or trying to impress prospective clients, your success is based on your ability to impress your visitors. Over 60% of visitors said they would not return to a website which had slow-loading pages, and studies have shown that visitors make a decision about ‘liking’ a website within the first 5 seconds. 

So… how fast is your website? 

CacheFly makes it faster:

  • CacheFly’s BestHop™ traffic management system delivers your content at blazing speeds by delivering your content from the ‘edge’ of the internet, placing it closer to your visitors.
  • Your content is always available. Guaranteed. So there is no need to worry about losing customers because of an ineffective server or network issues.
  • Offload images, flash, javascript and stylesheets from your origin infrastructure
  • Full support for gzip compression and expires headers

The load-time of your website affects your bottom line, period.

Quick facts about the critical impact of load times:
  • E-commerce sales losses may be as high as $4.35 billion due to slow download user frustration 
  • Visitors who consider a website ‘fast’ will visit an average of 1.6x more pages than on a site they consider slow. That’s60% more chances to close a sale, or a 60% revenue boost for advertising based sites. 

Our customers gain a business partner who understands that performance is paramount. We are not in the hosting business; we are in the performance business.

CacheFly delivers over 20 billion hits per month, at speeds that leave even the fastest single-location hosts in the dust. For more on the subject visit their website – www.http://www.cachefly.com/website.html

How to create multiple users with different privileges in ZF 2.0

I found this write up interesting on the subject.  There are multiple ways we can create users in ZF but this one is quite useful.
 I frequently use a ‘users’ table that has (at least) the following fields: 

CREATE TABLE `users` ( 
`username` varchar(255) NOT NULL, 
`password` varchar(32) NOT NULL, 
`first_name` varchar(255) NOT NULL, 
`last_name` varchar(255) NOT NULL, 
`active` varchar(45) NOT NULL, 
`role` varchar(45) NOT NULL, 
`password_last_change` date NOT NULL, 
/* Keys */ 

Add an access controller list module that you load on startup (use the code line: require once ‘path_to_aclmodule/your_acl_module.php’; in your index.php ) that has some of these entries: 

require_once ‘Zend/Acl.php’; 

$acl = new Zend_Acl(); 

require_once ‘Zend/Acl/Role.php’; 

// Define ROLES for the system 
$acl->addRole(new Zend_Acl_Role(‘Developer’)); // Can access all feature 
$acl->addRole(new Zend_Acl_Role(‘Admin’)); // Can access Admin funtions 
$acl->addRole(new Zend_Acl_Role(‘User’)); // Can access only USER but not Admin 

// Define RESOURCES that need permission to be used/manipulated 
require_once ‘Zend/Acl/Resource.php’; 
$acl->add(new Zend_Acl_Resource(‘user_admin’)); 
$acl->add(new Zend_Acl_Resource(‘someimportantfeature’)); // A functiion in a controller that requires access control 

//Configure regular User 
$acl->allow(‘User’, ‘a_user_function’); 
$acl->deny(‘User’, ‘someimportantfeature’); 

//Configure an Administrator 
$acl->allow(‘Admin’); // all rules 

Zend_Registry::set(‘acl’, $acl); 

… and, after loading your db ‘users’ table with user data + the ‘role’ value for each like: Admin, User, whatever.. reference and check the ‘role’ in a controller with: 

class ViewController extends Zend_Controller_Action 

public $user_role; 

function preDispatch() { 
$auth = Zend_Auth::getInstance(); 
if (!$auth->hasIdentity()) { 
} else { 
$userdata = $auth->getIdentity(); 
$this->user_role = $userdata->role; 
$this->view->user_role = $userdata->role; // to pass around in the ‘forms’ and ‘menus’ 
$this->username = $userdata->username; // for use by called functions in this controller (below) 


And actually test the role at the beginning of a function in the controller similar to this: 

function someimportantfeatureAction() { 
//***************ACCESS CHECK*************************// 
$acl = Zend_Registry::get(‘acl’); 
if(!$acl->isAllowed($this->user_role, ‘someimportantfeature’, ‘view’)){ // user_role(s) is NOT ALLOWED to access this function unless specifically allowed in access control list. 

//***************END ACCESS CHECK*************************// 

….. if the above access test is passed (Admin = yes, User = No), then your controller function gets to run. 

The above snippets are NOT in any way the only way, but just part of an existing site that uses access control via a users table with roles and other values that can be checked.

Developing Web Apps using Zend Framework 2.0

Zend Framework 2 is an open source framework for developing web applications and services using PHP 5.3+. Zend Framework 2 uses 100% object-oriented code and utilises most of the new features of PHP 5.3, namely namespaces, late static binding, lambda functions and closures.
Zend Framework 2 evolved from Zend Framework 1, a successful PHP framework with over 15 million downloads.
The component structure of Zend Framework 2 is unique; each component is designed with few dependencies on other components. ZF2 follows the SOLID object oriented design principle. This loosely coupled architecture allows developers to use whichever components they want. We call this a “use-at-will” design. We support Pyrus and Composer as installation and dependency tracking mechanisms for the framework as a whole and for each component, further enhancing this design.
We use PHPUnit to test our code and Travis CI as a Continuous Integration service.
While they can be used separately, Zend Framework 2 components in the standard library form a powerful and extensible web application framework when combined. Also, it offers a robust, high performance MVC implementation, a database abstraction that is simple to use, and a forms component that implements HTML5 form rendering, validation, and filtering so that developers can consolidate all of these operations using one easy-to-use, object oriented interface. Other components, such as Zend\Authentication and Zend\Permissions\Acl, provide user authentication and authorization against all common credential stores.
Still others, with the ZendService namespace, implement client libraries to simply access the most popular web services available. Whatever your application needs are, you’re likely to find a Zend Framework 2 component that can be used to dramatically reduce development time with a thoroughly tested foundation.
The principal sponsor of the project ‘Zend Framework 2’ is Zend Technologies, but many companies have contributed components or significant features to the framework. Companies such as GoogleMicrosoft, and StrikeIron have partnered with Zend to provide interfaces to web services and other technologies they wish to make available to Zend Framework 2 developers.
Zend Framework 2 could not deliver and support all of these features without the help of the vibrant Zend Framework 2 community. Community members, including contributors, make themselves available on mailing listsIRC channels and other forums. Whatever question you have about Zend Framework 2, the community is always available to address it.
