Joomla Search Engine Simulator Plugin

Joomla SEO Simulator

Welcome to the Search Engine Simulator Plugin for the Joomla CMS. With so many CSS rules and custom layouts used on modern Joomla websites, it can become difficult to see how the backend of your HTML pages are strutured. This makes it more difficult to look at your site from an SEO standpoint and create easy to read content important to Search Engines. This is why Web Design and Company created the Search Engine Simulator Plugin for the Joomla CMS. This Joomla SEO Plugin allows you to look at your site the same way a Search Engine does, and see how your Joomla HTML pages are rendered. This can also point out template rendering issues or CMS-generated content invisible to the user (such as hidden module titles and default template content), but visible to Search Engine bots.

SEO Simulator Plugin

The Search Engine Simulator Plugin for the Joomla CMS makes using external SEO Browsers to look at the structure of your site obsolete. The Joomla SEO Simulator Plugin is very easy to use and once installed, allows you to see the stripped out HTML markup of your Joomla web pages directly from your own domain without having to copy and paste your URL into other websites. The code view is very simple to understand and marks header tags, links (both follow and no follow), span tags, image tags, title text and much more. Why should you care? Search Engines only look at the markup of your pages and cannot see any of the visual elements of your site. By looking at your content as a Search Engine bot, you will be able to edit your Joomla articles/modules to make them more SEO friendly.

Download Free Test Plugin

The Joomla Search Engine Simulator plugin uses an advanced code library called PHP Tidy to make its magic work. This PHP library is not enabled on all servers by default, so we have included a FREE SEO Simulator Test Plugin for you to install on your Joomla site which will tell you if the library is enabled on your server. If PHP Tidy is not enabled, please contact your hosting provider and have them enable PHP Tidy for you.
