Joomla is considered as user friendly system to make your own interactive community website in less time and with less coding.

In the Joomla Day event there was a big number of crowd but there were a lot of people who are in real life is just a business man, teacher or just a plain housewife.

If you are trying to make money from a blog or a website as a hobbyist or as an entrepreneur, then you will be at a rather large disadvantage compared to many of the other blogs out there. You see the problem is that you are just one person – and while you might be very talented and very dedicated, you will be going up against blogs and websites run by whole professional teams. If you want to make a gaming website for instance, then you will have to go up against IGN which has offices full of people uploading numerous posts daily, teams of web designers with professional degrees and the best software, and support from the games industry as well.

Panda Update – 5 Fixes For The Latest Google Adjustment

If your site is still suffering from the adjustment made to Google’s algorithm in mid October, I’ve got some ideas I’d like to share with you on how you can turn this trend around.

It’s been almost a month now since Google made the change that affected thousands of sites. According to the data that I have available to me, most sites that were affected suffered a reduction in ranking but were still on the first page or at the top of the second page. However I’ve read posts in various chat forums from some webmasters that say their traffic has been cut in half and their page rankings were in the toilet.

I know how disappointing it can be to see your hard work go poof overnight but if you sit back and take a hard look at what happened and why, I’m confidant you’ll be able to fix your pages so they once again get the ranking they had…or at least close to it.

But keep this in mind…as adjustments go this wasn’t a big one and I believe it is correctable.
