Better WordPress performance

 

WordPress performance how to get better Website performance

On Shared hosting packages

Small Business Website for Irish Businesses

Searching for the cheapest solution, is not always searching for the solution that will make you happy in the long run. If you’re using WordPress on a server that is hosted by a third party (like for example GoDaddy) and you find out its slow or sluggish, likely you have selected the hosting provider based on the cheapest price.

The cheaper they get, the more likely it will be that their support and performance will be poor (quality comes with a price). We ourselves started with a super cheap (GoDaddy) server back in the days, but quickly realized it was insufficient for our needs, and after moving to another “heavier” server. We eventually moved to Blacknight hosting company. Our advise is to host at a company you know and trust. Be aware that moving sites from one place to another is quite often a tough task (migrating sites, swithcing DNS records, transferring mails etc)

Website Plugins

Better WordPress Performance – another reason why sites become sluggish, is if you have too many plugins running on your site. Each plugins performs certain activities when there is interaction between client (browser) and the server. If you don’t need a specific plugin, consider turning it off. We try to embed as much logic as we can within our theme such that you don’t need those plugins, so please share with us your needs and we will try to embed the features of the plugin in our theme too, assuming we think the features make sense and are useful for other clients too).

Huge images

Uploading huge images can be a killer for your performance. Photos shot by modern smartphones and tablets (let alone digital cameras) can easily be several megabytes in (file) size. This isn’t particularly beneficial for the performance of your site.

My personal rule of thumb if that each image should not be bigger than 100Kb, and stored in JPEG format. JPEG files can be compressed in a great way, without loosing much of the quality of the images. If you don’t know how to manipulate the (file)size of photos, consider asking an expert, or investing some of your spare time on Google. We ourselves do offer photo enhancement services.

Hosting your website abroad

When selecting your hosting provider, be sure to pick one that has a data center that is relatively close to your country, preferably in your country. The closer the data center is from your website’s visitors, the better the performance will be.

On-Page and Domain Trust Factors

A trusted website is actually common sense and I’m going to give you a checklist.

A Home page, About, Contact, Privacy Policy, Terms of Service Pages are necessary and the basic structure to a website. Also they are the pages that show google that your a serious business and not just a spammy website.

Whenever you create a new website, the very first thing you should do is create these pages. These pages are huge on-page trust signals because Google knows that most spammers could care less about adding them. Try this plugin – auto-terms-of-service-and-privacy-policy  it generates Privacy Policy and Terms of Service content for your site.

When creating Links Out

Adding a link to WordPress page or post

1 to 3 links to research content is ideal for you post. The Internet is designed to be one massive resource, not an isolated event on your website.

Link out, be apart of the community, and gain Google’s trust.

Notes when linking out:

  • Don’t go crazy: linking out in moderation is great, just don’t link out to 100 different websites in your article. Every link you add to an article, decreases the chances that it will be clicked.
  • Don’t link out to websites if it is not trusted. Some of these websites include gambling, porn, and illegal activity. SEO is common sense..

Social Shares

Social sharing tells Google that people are finding value in your content. A unique perspective will provoke the social shares.

Encourage Blog Comments

Some don’t allow them but if you do, post should stimulate comments on public blogs, actively try to provoke comments on your blog. It shows Google that your website is becoming a community and resource (that equals trust).

Be Active on your Blog by posting

Have an active blog get your website more spider visits from Google, and helps recognises your website as an authority within the industry. And most importantly, a good blog will attract links naturally.

Google counts relevant backlinks as votes.

 Quality recognised  votes = more trust, more traffic, and easier ranking.

Don’t Copy People’s Content

Do not copy from other websites.

Longer Domain Registration that make sense

Google trust a website with a longer registration length. Spammy sites hope to make it through a year, i.e. (a12b3x.com) while business websites intend to be around for the long haul.

Make Whois Public

If you’re not a scammer and have a serious business, don’t hide your WHOIS information. SEOs think having private WHOIS protects them in some way, it can actually be a red flag if Google is doing a manual review on your website.

If you’re doing more intense SEO campaigns, just create fake WHOIS. Private WHOIS is NOT a good way to send trust to your site.

How does Trust effect Your Website

Every single link campaign with high-quality trusted links. A large percentage of how Google trusts your website will depend on the type and quality of back links you have and the distribution of your anchor text.

Paid Directories

Paid and free Directories have a high PR rank, domain authority, and trust flow. So by posting your website there, the benefits may be numerous links, trust and exposure.

WordPress based theme and has all functionality including:

  • Simplicity Simplicity makes it possible for you to get online and get publishing, quickly. Nothing should get in the way of you getting your website up and your content out there. WordPress is built to make that happen.

 

  • Flexibility WordPress, you can create any type of website you want: a personal blog or website, a photoblog, a business website, a professional portfolio, a government website, a magazine or news website, an online community, even a network of websites. You can make your website beautiful with themes, and extend it with plugins. You can even build your very own application.

 

  • Publish with Ease If you’ve ever created a document, you’re already a whizz at creating content with WordPress. You can create Posts and Pages, format them easily, insert media, and with the click of a button your content is live and on the web.

 

  • Publishing Tools WordPress makes it easy for you to manage your content. Create drafts, schedule publication, and look at your post revisions. Make your content public or private, and secure posts and pages with a password.

 

  • User Management Not everyone requires the same access to your website. Administrators manage the site, editors work with content, authors and contributors write that content, and subscribers have a profile that they can manage. This lets you have a variety of contributors to your website, and let others simply be part of your community.

 

  • Media Management They say a picture says a thousand words, which is why it’s important for you to be able to quickly and easily upload images and media to WordPress. Drag and drop your media into the uploader to add it to your website. Add alt text, captions, and titles, and insert images and galleries into your content. We’ve even added a few image editing tools you can have fun with.

 

  • Full Standards Compliance Every piece of WordPress generated code is in full compliance with the standards set by the W3C. This means that your website will work in today’s browser, while maintaining forward compatibility with the next generation of browser. Your website is a beautiful thing, now and in the future.

 

  • Easy Theme System WordPress comes bundled with two default themes, but if they aren’t for you there’s a theme directory with thousands of themes for you to create a beautiful website. None of those to your taste? Upload your own theme with the click of a button. It only takes a few seconds for you to give your website a complete makeover.

 

  • Extend with Plugins WordPress comes packed full of features for every user, for every other feature there’s a plugin directory with thousands of plugins. Add complex galleries, social networking, forums, social media widgets, spam protection, calendars, fine-tune controls for search engine optimization, and forms.
  • Builtin Comments Your blog is your home, and comments provide a space for your friends and followers to engage with your content. WordPress’s comment tools give you everything you need to be a forum for discussion and to moderate that discussion.
  • Search Engine Optimised WordPress is optimized for search engines right out of the box. For more fine-grained SEO control, there are plenty of SEO plugins to take care of that for you.

 

  • Multilingual WordPress is available in more than 70 languages. If you or the person you’re building the website for would prefer to use WordPress in a language other than English.

 

  • Easy Installation and Upgrades WordPress has always been easy to install and upgrade. If you’re happy using an FTP program, you can create a database, upload WordPress using FTP, and run the installer. Not familiar with FTP? Plenty of web hosts offer one-click WordPress installers that let you install WordPress with, well, just one click. All you need is a username and password.

 

  • Importers Using blog or website software that you aren’t happy with? Running your blog on a hosted service that’s about to shut down? WordPress comes with importers for blogger, LiveJournal, Movable Type, TypePad, Tumblr, and WordPress. If you’re ready to make the move, we’ve made it easy for you.

 

  • Own Your Data Hosted services come and go. If you’ve ever used a service that disappeared, you know how traumatic that can be. If you’ve ever seen adverts appear on your website, you’ve probably been pretty annoyed. Using WordPress means no one has access to your content. Your own your data, all of it — your website, your content, your data.
  • Freedom WordPress is licensed under the GPL which was created to protect your freedoms. You are free to use WordPress in any way you choose: install it, use it, modify it, distribute it
  • Software freedom is the foundation that WordPress is built on.
  • Community As the most popular open source CMS on the web, WordPress has a vibrant and supportive community. Ask a question on the support forums and get help from a volunteer.
  • Contribute Yourself You too can be on WordPress. Help to build WordPress, answer questions on the support forums, write documentation, translate WordPress into your language.
