brisket seo

BrisketSEO for Joomla 3

This Joomla 3.0 plugin gives you the ability to set different title configurations & separator.

Named for a story I was told about why for many generations the family always cut the ends off the brisket. One day the young son asked his mother why, and her answer was because thats how her mother taught her. This answer repeated up the chain of grandmother, great grandmother etc until the actual reason was discovered. "Because we had a small oven and had to cut the ends off to fit in it"... Thats right, for generations and possibly thousands of briskets prepared, the ends were wasted because "thats just the way I know how to do it."

This plugin was inspired by a SEO guy I knoww who was losing sleep because of Joomla's default dash separator for page titles. While he didn't know WHY, he had always used a pipe as the separator, and he was compelled to keep doing it. So much that he was going through and setting custom page titles just to change it from a dash to a pipe across hundreds of pages on some sites!

This insanity led me(and co-workers) to do some research as to the "WHY" and I decided it would be nice to have a site wide option to override the default if needed in certain cases. And while Joomla! can override the title on a per-page basis, if you needed the bulk of your pages to be displayed with a | instead of the default "-" you would have had to go in and set the Page Title for each one of them. This plugin will do that work for you.

 

What it does:

Switch between Joomla Default, [sitename] - [pagetitle]  or [pagetitle] - [sitename]

Set custom title for "Homepage" as well as choose options for its display.

Change the default Joomla separator from "-" to something else like "|"

Jason is a technically proficient web developer / programmer who has repeatedly proved himself as an adept student of technology. His ability to work with people in a team environment and to find himself leading that team is one of many facets that set him apart from many other technology professionals at his level. His eye for design and imagery is equaled only by his know how and can-do attitude.

I have worked with Jason for 3 years and have seen him apply a broad, deep base of skills working with databases, web sites, and systems. While this has been primarily in a LAMP realm it also extended into Microsoft technologies and servers. Solely responsible for the company’s external facing E-Commerce site he has shown great technical skills and delivered enhancements that enabled the site to scale to meet all corporate needs with great success. Jason regularly reached out and contributed to the broader IT needs in the area of system and OS configuration / support / troubleshooting with great success and possesses significant skills in this area in addition to his development capabilities.

I can highly recommend Jason and would gladly work with him again should an opportunity present itself.
