Plugins and Features
Open source content management systems like Joomla and Wordpress come with basic functions and can be extended easily by adding so called “plugins” or “extensions.” Some of them are paid features. This is because they have been programmed by independent developers.
Lion Tiger Jaguar has worked with many different extensions in order to increase the user experience or digitize some of your processes.
Examples of which include:
- Captcha Spam Protection
- Form Builders
- Review and Rating Portals
- Social Sharing
- Newsletter Sign-Up
- Embedding Social Media Channels
- Support Ticket System
- Service Chat
- Dynamic Content Features
Your homepage is the base for all search engine marketing efforts, let’s make sure it covers all aspects of your business. On-page optimization prepares content in a way that makes it easier for search engines to understand what your website is all about. It demands from you to know and use your main keywords as well as long tail keywords. To boost your local search ranking, we are also making sure to include your service area and other regional factors while optimizing your content.
Many small businesses still plan websites without a strategy to keep up with fresh content. I understand how maintaining a website seems like a lot of work with little results for business owners. But even if you decide to not post a lot of updates on your website, you still have to make sure it is properly updated. Joomla and Wordpress both require updating on a regular basis to keep them secure and to add new features.
It is imperative to use security updates because they usually fix “exploits” - which are unwanted back doors into the system. Once an exploit becomes known, you can count on hackers to act on it. Lion Tiger Jaguar recommends all clients to make use of siteground’s special 24/7 hacking monitoring and protection. If you are running either Wordpress or Joomla, a dead giveaway that your website is being used by hackers are (admin) users in your system, which you have not created.
Just browse through your website’s backend and check the user section. If you haven’t updated your Wordpress in a while, there is a good chance that your website is already being compromised. Hackers usually don’t take down your website, because they are interested in staying undetected. They will mostly use your website to either send out spam emails or place backlinks on your website. Both can lead to a down-ranking of your website.
