How do you get sitemaps on your website and links to it that will help the Googlebot discover new websites, blogs, and content? We can take care of the dirty complicated work, but here is a good idea of what needs to be done:
Once your website or blog is indexed, there will be more traffic from Google search. Content discovery will happen faster if you have set up sitemaps or have an RSS feed. Let Websnare do this for you! The best way to ensure that your new content is discovered quickly is simply by sharing it on social media networks through status updates.
Blog content is crawled and indexed faster than regular pages on a static website, so consider having a blog that supports your website. For example, if you have a new product page, write a blog post about it and link to the product page in your blog post. This will help the product page get found much faster by the Googlebot!
You certainly hope people will find your website or blog through a search. But typically, you have to wait around for the Googlebot to crawl your website and add it to the Google index. Here are the basics of how website content is crawled and indexed:
The Googlebot is simply software that Google sends out to collect information about documents on the web to add to Google’s searchable index.
The Googlebot finds new content on the web such as new websites, blogs, pages, etc. by starting with web pages captured during previous crawl processes and adds in sitemap data provided by webmasters. As it browses web pages previously crawled, it will detect links upon those pages to add to the list of pages to be crawled.

Joomla! 3.6 has been released! Here are some highlights of the 3.6 release:
Joomla! Update has been improved and now allows you to reinstall Joomla’s core files at the click of a button, overwriting any modified file(s) and reverting them back to the default. Joomla! 3.6 contains a lot of UX improvements. Now you can find your modules faster, have tasks done by dropdown, improved user management and so much more...
-With the new Sub Form Field function in Joomla! 3.6, we added some extra additional functionality next to Repeatable fields. Now you can nest XML forms inside each other or reuse your existing forms inside your current form.
-Create categories on the fly: It can get frustrating when you create a new item, and you realise that you haven’t created a category yet. Joomla! 3.6 now lets you create a category on the fly for articles, contacts, newsfeeds and banners.
-Menu type ACL: ACL in the backend did not exist at the menu level, now we have improved that. Give or block certain user groups access to a specific menu, and therefore also all menu items of that menu.
-See what's in your menus with All Menu Items: The new option to show all items from all menus gives you a quick overview of what is displayed where on your website. It has never been easier to spot duplicated links, missing menu items or just get an overview of every menu on your site.
