Social will not affect SERPS. Right?

Saturday, 06 August 2011 20:47

There has been a lot of talk lately about social networks and how they affect search engine results pages - the unpaid, organic listings that the search engines give you when you search for something. Many of the social media proponents claim that social will impact search while many of the SEO experts claim that no such force exists.

Eight days late!

Wednesday, 20 July 2011 00:00

That's right, the release of Joomla 1.7.0 stable is 8 days late! Frankly, I am a little surprised that it actually came out. This is definitely a big moment for the Joomla! project because it validates the 6 month release cycle. The good news is that it was a few ways late due to the dev team making sure that it would be a simple upgrade from 1.6. The bad news is that if you are on a 1.5 site, you will still have to migrate your site and April 2012 is not as far away as it sounds right now.

How to get in to Google+ Beta

BNR releases BNR Plus One module

If you haven't seen Google's answer the the Facebook like button, you will soon. According to Google, the new "+1" button will soon be integrated across their network of sites. We figured we'd get a jump on the competition and put together a module to display the +1 button on Joomla 1.5 sites.

Mark your calendars - CLT JUG meeting

Monday, 30 May 2011 00:00

It's taken over a year (where have we heard that before??) but slowly but surely the Charlotte Joomla Users Group is starting to taken on a life of it's own. No doubt due to the tireless efforts of Jon Neubauer who has really gone above and beyond to get this group rolling. The next meeting will be June 9 at Hickory Tavern off exit 18 near North Lake Mall. The main topic of discussion will be Joomla 1.6 features as well as Joomla's plan for 1.7 and beyond. Jon has a lot of good information to share so be sure to make it for this meeting.
