There are two major difference between organic traffic and paid traffic:

1. Organic traffic is free. However, it takes longer for you to start seeing the results. Longer compare to search.

2. Paid (PPC) cost money. You create an account with a PPC network like adwords and big for keywords. This cost more but you will get instant traffic. However, when your money runs out so does the traffic that was being sent to your website by search engines.

The key is to optimize your entire website first and then while you wait for the organic traffic to kick in, you can test out PPC.

Unlike the days when you had to submit your website to search engines, nowdays, it's not such a big deal anymore because when a quality website links to yours, search engines will easily find and index your site.

Section 3: First steps for optimizing your Joomla site

It's very important for you to delete sample content because if you keep them, those contents will get picked up by search engines and by your site's visitors. This could really hurt your site's ranking because the sample content doesn't have any relevance to your website.

Delete the default metatags

Remember to rename your default htaccess.txt file to .htaccess. If you already have a .htaccess on your file, you have to make sure that it has Joomla content. Most Cpanels will automatically create a .htaccess. To check:

1. Right click on the .htaccess(if you already have one)

2. Select "code edit" and click ok

If the file is blank, delete it, then rename your htaccess.txt to .htaccess

The last step is to make sure that you add the 301 redirect code which is this:

Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteEngine on
rewritecond %{http_host} ^domain.com [nc]
rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.com/$1 [r=301,nc]

All you have to do is to replace the 'domain' with your actual website domain. Don't change anything else because if you do (even by accident) it work work.

Once you've done that, hit 'save' and you're done!
