Geo-Targeting with SocialAds

Geo-Targeting with SocialAds

Socialads is not just an advertising tool for Joomla it is much more than that. It has plenty of stuff which can give your advertisers a whole new experience of advance trafficking and you can convert those in terms of revenue. One such feature in SocialAds is Geo-targeting.

Targeting is something which most of  the advertisers want to do by targeting a specific group of people whether it is based in age, gender, area or any community etc.  for their advertisements. In such a case, advertisers tend to focus on their unique selling proposition (what makes them different and better than competitors) and target specific markets.

Joomla Extension Devs ! Not using Joomla Update can cost you and your users !

Joomla Extension Devs ! Not using Joomla Update can cost you and your users !

 Not using the native Joomla Update mechanism could be a Major security issue as newer Joomla users are seen to be relying more and more on the active method to keep track of updates. Not having the latest version of extensions can be a major security issue as users might keep using old insecure versions without knowing that a new update has been released.

We did a survey and this is what we found out:

  • Newer Joomla users are very much a Joomla 3 generation.
  • They have become one with the usability in Joomla 3 and expect consistency across extensions in the same
  • They trust the update mechanism to tell them about all new updates in Joomla core as well as extensions.

With Joomla 2.5 EOL happening months ago, this throws some really good insight into new user behavior and Joomla extension developers need to adapt quickly to risk of being left behind.
