SiteGround Webinar Series

SiteGround Webinar

We’ve been thinking for quite some time now what will be a cool way to extend our resources and help you get your websites and business up and running, and here we are – starting a fresh educational initiative through webinars. We’ve got some of our partners excited about this idea too and will cooperate with them to bring you first hand experience and knowledge on the nitty-gritty of setting up and running an online business.

The first webinars will be in the next 2 weeks and we will be covering the topics of Joomla speed and performance optimizations, and the muddy waters of Joomla SEO. We have invited our friend Richard Pearce from BuildaJoomlaWebsite as a co-host and he, together with our very own performance guru Daniel Kanchev, will be the superstars of our first two webinars.

Speed optimizations is not rocket science and Daniel will share tons of useful tips and tricks that will help you make your Joomla site literally fly: hidden Joomla backend gems, template and extensions tips, caching methods and plugins, CDN options and many more. Register HERE

WEBINAR 2: How to Get Higher Rankings for Your Joomla Site

Website speed is definitely a ranking factor for Google already (hence previous webinar, heh), but is it the only one? Certainly not, and Richard knows what the other factors are. He’ll tell you how to target and place the right keywords in your Joomla site to get higher rankings. Register HERE

This is an experiment and we hope we’re off to a good start of what will turn into a regular educational series. We have more ideas on interesting topics for the future, but since these webinars are for you, we ask for your input. Let us know what you want to know, throw your suggestions in the comments and help us choose the next webinar topic!

    It is great that Siteground is having these webinars to help us manage our websites better. However, I noticed that the webinars' system requirements do not seem to cater for Linux-based computers. Is this correct or can one use instead the GoToMeeting Web Viewer on a browser in a Linux system for these webinars?

      I'm afraid that we cannot enable the web viewer for the webinars. It seems though they have sweet iOS and Android applications so you can join us using those. Details here:

    Hi Daniel, I took your webinar advice and signup for a new account, uploaded my joomla site into a subfolder but am now told by tech support that I have to upgrade my account in order for the subfolder not to show in my url. That is pretty lousy.
    Can you recommend another solution?
