I have previously written several blog posts about Joomla and SEO.

The first one was Six steps to get your Joomla site indexed in Google. In the post, I talk about things you can do to make your Joomla site attractive in the most important search engine of them all.

A later post was the fourth in my series on Joomla meta tags which discussed how to check your Joomla meta tags in Google Webmaster Tools.

Both of the posts mention Google Webmaster Tools and how to use various functions of these useful tools.

I recently figured out, though, that many people have trouble understanding how to verify their Joomla website in Google Webmaster Tools.

By verifying your site with Google. you tell them that you are the owner of the website and that they may show details about the site to you. Without verifying your site you won't get access to a lot of the more advanced functions of Google Webmaster Tools.

Read on to get the full instructions on how to verify your Joomla site in Google Webmaster Tools.

10. Use the cheapest hosting provider you can find.

Preferably use a shared server that hosts hundreds of other sites, some of which are high-traffic porn sites. Don't check the list of recommended hosting providers.
FYI: You can use a tool such as Robtex (if you are using a shared Hosting Provider) to see who you are sharing space with and if you should be proactive to request a move to another shared space. For example: http://www.robtex.com/dns/joomla.org.html, or for REALLY cool information: Google.com: http://www.robtex.com/dns/google.com.html. This shows domain, shared, whois, blacklist, analysis, contact...

9. Don't waste time with regular backups.

Maybe the hosting provider will help you out.

Joomla is an open-source content management system designed for developers with coding experience rather than beginners who are more dependent on website builders for creating web content. With a broad selection of commerce and business add-ons, Joomla works well for companies looking to step up their basic website to something more appealing, unique, interactive and professional.

Regardless of the business add-ons you need for your website, Joomla has them all free of charge. However, the selection of website themes isn't as extensive as its other CMS solutions. You can easily search private website and blogs to find more, and the Joomla community is quite active and available to help you hunt down what you need for your business website project. It is easy to create an eCommerce site, complete with shopping carts, point-of-sale systems, inventory management and affiliate tracking.

Joomla has most standard add-ons you need for a basic website too. These include blogs, email forms, discussion forums and photo galleries. You can include user-contribution pages and allow visitors to add content. The security measures available with Joomla help protect your important content during any interactions with your site visitors. Captcha ensures that contributors sending information are human, and SSL compatibility gives you the option to password protect sensitive pages and content.

Before you begin, it is essential you know what version of Joomla! you are using. This is especially true if you are changing to a major version. If you are already confused or don't know what a major version is, you should read more about the release and support cycle of Joomla CMS Versions. Joomla is released with the following version designations: [major].[minor].[maintenance]. For example, version 3.1.5 is Joomla major version 3, minor 1, and maintenance release 5.

Since version 1.7, the updating and upgrading of Joomla are built into the administration interface as a component. The terms updating and upgrading might be used interchangeably. In many ways, updating and upgrading are alike since Joomla 1.7, but you will need to pay very close attention to the details. To help define them better, it is recommended you use the term migration which would be defined as a major.minor(2.5) to a different major.minor(3.1) version.
