How to change a page URL using SH404SEF

So today, I had a scenerio where I had to change a few URLs on a production website. The Old URLs weren't SEO'ed, and it was time to practice what I preach, so I'm doing optimizations on a couple sites.


Here's how to Change your Page URL for better SEO using SH404SEF

(SH404SEF can be purchased from Anything-Digital.com)

I want to change the following URL:



Going into the SH404SEF dashboard, I go to the URL Manager:


In the search field, I type a part of the old url in to find the SEF url in the columns. Using the example above, I'd type in "nonSEOpage" to filter out most of the other pages for easier finding of the page I wanted to do the edit to. I click on the SEFurl and make the changes in the box shown below in the "New SEF URL" field. I just click save and I'm done!



This is how easy it is to change your URLs to something optimized for SEO!

But Wait! There's More!

In the image above, you see the "Title and meta tags" tab? This is where you should fill in the SEO'ed description of the page that's going to show up on Google search results in the description:

    Over the last decades, the web has become significantly more social and made communication among companies and users much easier. At the same time, terms such as “privacy” were in many cases underestimated because of the abundance of public shared personal data. Users are dynamically contributing to the content production of the web, and they often get involved in a “game” where their personal data becomes the actual product. It is not unusual for a user to misunderstand that his personal data is information that could be publicly shared without any special protection.

    The Joomla World Conference 2017 in Rome was a great moment to discuss the future of the project, which... surprise… will, for the most part, have a big "Joomla 4" stamp on it. In the context of the conference, I was invited to participate in the Marketing Sprint, kicking it off with a full day of meeting with the leaders and members responsible for the launch of the Joomla 4 marketing campaign. Together we brainstormed and discussed ideas, reviewed predictions and adjusted expectations to better fit realistic goals.
