Switch from Joomla to WordPress. Salvage SEO.
Joomla is a headache to manage. WordPress is easier. Joomla was commonly used as a business or community content management system (CMS). Adding content in Joomla is confusing with many on and off switches, template modules, components, and add-ons.
But most importantly, Joomla lacks SEO. Yep, you read that correctly. Unless you’ve got a love for programming, lots of free time, and some Advil, your Joomla and SEO won’t be synonymous. Even the “best Joomla SEO Components” require a few hours of install and setup. That’s not our idea of fun.
Making the switch from Joomla to WordPress will give your website an automatic search engine boost. Our Los Angeles Joomla to WordPress Design Team can help you migrate from Joomla to WordPress easily.
Should I Convert Joomla to WordPress?
Search Engine Optimization
Joomla was not built for SEO. An SEO component must be added to Joomla to obtain any worthwhile search engine ranking. The WordPress foundation is built-for SEO – out of the box.
Joomla’s media framework is poorly constructed, and vulnerable to hackers. WordPress allows you to maintain your image naming conventions, which will increase traffic to your site.
Mobile Content Entry & Editing
By moving from Joomla to WordPress, not only will you be able to easily change your content, but you can also change your content on the go. WordPress offers free mobile apps for iPhone, Android, and Blackberry.
Easy Design Updates
Changing your Joomla Template design isn’t easy. But with WordPress, you have quick access to free themes and theme edits in the dashboard.
Faster Plugins & Addons
The process of adding Joomla components has gotten easier over the years, but it can still frustrate even the most skilled programmers. WordPress has a built-in plugin repository with access to hundreds of thousands of approved plugins by the WordPress Community. When you switch from Joomla to WordPress, you’ll have access to plugins at your fingertips.
The Joomla community is filled with super technical programmers. Who wants to learn PHP overnight to add an image module for the doo-hicky or the thinga-ma-jiggy? With WordPress, you have the backing of over 20 million regular users, who have installed WordPress on 60 million websites.
