There are a zillion reasons why you would want to have a blog on your website, and on March 25th, 2015, we're going back to doing Joomla Tutorials with 'corePHP's Wordpress for Joomla extension.
It's no secret that blogs are one of the best things you can add or start on your website to get more traffic, but there's other reasons why you'd want to start a blog as well:
- Increase your site's SEO strength
- Establish your business as an authority
- Connect with your site visitors
- Creates opportunities for leads, CTA and Sales
- Repeat site visitors with each new post
Joomla itself is very good at doing the blog thing, but over the past few years, I've learned that a lot of people are really used to using Wordpress to do their blogging on.
'corePHP' identified this trend, but also saw that many sites are built with Joomla!. 'corePHP' brought Wordpress and Joomla together in an integrated package called Wordpress for Joomla, where the Wordpress installation lies within the Joomla component and integrates with the existing Joomla site.
At this meetup, we will install and tour the Wordpress for Joomla extension, show you how to set up the blog and get started blogging.
This is a beginner level tutorial. Basic Wordpress and Joomla knowledge is helpful to keep up with the tutorial.
