Core Joomla updates are important - never ignore available updates as this could lead to your site becoming insecure. Apply them where ever possible, but ensure that you don't overwrite any modification made to the Joomla core code. From Joomla version 2.5 your Joomla site will tell you in the admin area if there are new updates available.

Also keep your Joomla Addons up to date, many security breaches in Joomla sites are due to third party addons. From Joomla 2.5 many of these addons have automatic update notifications within Joomla admin.

Before applying updates - ensure you make a site backup.

Need help in ensuring your site has the correct updates applied? - contact us for assistance.

Quick answer - Yes. So where to start?

Ensure Search Engine Friendly URLs are enabled, meta tags for site and pages are completed.
Look at 3rd party addons such as SH404sef for enhanced SEF / SEO options.

Consider that SEO and site promotion needs to be directed to your products and services - not just your company name.

Contact us for more SEO improvements on your Joomla site.

For every Joomla site we recommend the following two addon extenisons:

Akeeba Tools - for improved security and site efficiency

Akeeba Backup - manage your own backups in addition to hosts backups.

Select the pro versions for enhanced features.

There are many more addons we would recommend on the basic Joomla site, contact us to discuss Joomla addons.

Security Risk?

If your current Joomla install is version 1.5.26 or below - it is out of date and it's security is at risk - YOU SHOULD NOT use it as part of your business tools.

Joomla have now also stopped support for 2.5.X series and hence it's time to upgrade your site if you are running this stream of software on your web site.

If you have a series 3.X version of Joomla running your site, you must ensure it is updated to Joomla 3.9.28 at a minimum as lower levels of Joomla 3.X have a security risks.

Current version of Joomla 3.9.28 / 3.10.2 or 4.0.3

Note: Joomla 3.10 and 4.x were released 17/8/2021 - however these required careful analysis of your web site before upgrading.
3.10.2 - being a stepping stone to Joomla series 4.
Joomla 3.X will be support until September 2023.

Joomla 4 is recommended for new sites where posssible.

As these are a migration not just a straight upgrade.
