A slow loading website can hurt your business by turning away visitors who expect fast load times and smooth online experiences, and harming your reputation.
If your site runs slow and you’re running WordPress, there are plenty of things that could be slowing you down. Below are five common reasons for sluggish performance on WordPress platforms, and how you can fix them.
WordPress is introducing more powerful analytics with a new tool called Insights.
WordPress Insights give you instant access to your all-time numbers, including posts, views, and visitors. Dig deeper into your stats to make the most of your site.
Have you ever wondered what times of day or days of the week you have the most visitors? Insights has you covered!
The main new feature is the ability to tell you what times and days your website is most popular, for example 9:00AM and Tuesdays.
One neat tool for independent publishers is the Posting Activity visualization, a sort of calender infographic describing the days you post most frequently. The deeper the blue, the more often you’ve posted.
The stats that you’re used to seeing haven’t gone away. They moved the Comments, Followers, Tags & Categories, and Publicize sections to the Insights page. Everything else is right where it was before, you’re still able to view the other modules by day, week, month, or year — just select the period you’d like to view at the top of the stats page.
Although other services already provide these sort of analytics, it’s nice to see WordPess adding it by default – it could remove the need for a plug-in, at least.
Hiring a Web designer or design company can seem like a daunting task. Too many speak in nerd and the good ones never seem available to take on Uganda or anywhere in the world.
I realize that maybe your cousin is a Web designer who builds websites on the side. Or your friend’s brother in college once updated your Tumblr in exchange for a case of beer. Or that you can, quite easily, figure out Web design, programming and WordPress yourself, but you just haven’t found the time.
The humble About Us page: it’s one of the most visited pages on any site and also one of the most neglected and overlooked. We chatted with some of our favorite digital marketing experts on what’s usually missing to give you an easy checklist for your own site.
