Last week we looked at different parts of the search result, with a short description of each part. In this post we will go over what sitelinks are, why they are valuable, and some helpful hints to improve your search result.

What are Sitelinks?

Google sitelinks are additional links that display in main search result. Typically a user will see sitelinks for brand names that Google recognizes. You can distinguish sitelinks when there are two or more links indented below the main search result.

In November we'll be attending the second Joomla World Conference. This year the event will be held in Boston from November 8 to 10. This isn’t just a conference for developers. This unique event will bring together some of the top names in Joomla as well as users, fans and enthusiasts. It’s a place for people who have only worked over Skype or Google Docs to meet in person for the first time, and for old friends to reconnect and share a meal.

In order to understand SEO and design the structure of a website, it is important to understand the components of a search result.

In this post we look at a Google search result and describe each part.

Take your web administration skills to the next level by attending our free webinar provided by via our colleagues at cloudaccess.net - expert Joomla hosts!

Businesses today depend on their websites more than ever. It is crucial for website owners, developers, and maintainers to protect them. To protect organization's data, you need to implement a data backup, security and update plan. Backing up files can protect against accidental loss of data, database corruption, hardware failures, and most common-- hacked websites. It's your job as an administrator to make sure that backups are performed and that backups can be restored with minimal data loss.

Friday, we bring you a walk through of Watchful and show you a first hand learning experience, and some practical advice on maintaining your Joomla websites.

There has been a lot of talk lately regarding Joomla Security and attacks on Joomla sites.

Yesterday the website security company Sucuri posted a blog entitled "Big Increase in Distributed Brute Force Attacks Against Joomla Websites" in which they summarize some very worrying statistics:

"We have seen an average of 6,000 brute force attempts against Joomla sites daily across our honeypots and CloudProxy networks. Some days the attacks increased to almost 13k, and dipped as low as 3k attempts. However, for the last 3 days, you can see a big increase, reaching almost 269,976 scans yesterday, September 2nd, 2013. That’s a very big increase out of nowhere."

The following image shows the alarming increase in attacks over the past few weeks:

This got us thinking how such attacks could easily be thwarted. The attacks they cited were login attempts on the Joomla Administrator folders which are relatively easy to protect.

Style. What does it mean?

Rather than giving you a definition out of the dictionary, I’ll just lay it down. It’s distinction. It’s about just being you in the best way that you know how.

Quotes.

They’re very popular these days, aren’t they? They somehow lend a bit of credibility to what we have to say, rather like a stolen endorsement. That said; let’s get right to it, shall we? Shakespeare—arguably one of the greatest of all writers—said,

“To thine own self, be true.”

Today we are proud to announce the immediate availability of JCal Pro® 3.2.8 (build 3024), which is fully compatible with Joomla! 2.5 and 3.1!

This is a maintenance and feature release.

Anything Digital is delighted to announce its latest release of Josetta® - the translation manager for Joomla.

In addition, we are excited to offer for the first time a community (free-for-life) version of Josetta®!
