In the 94th episode of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked about the importance of optimizing a Joomla website. He also wanted to know if a 301 redirect can help a site's ranking.
The exact question was:
If I am setting up a website for a local business along with a Tier 1 IFTTT network and then 301 redirecting to the customers website from my wordpress property, how important is it to fully optimize the customers Joomla website. Will it rank solely by redirecting my sites pages to it or is it still critical to fully optimize the Joomla site?
