Optimize your WordPress site with this awesome plugin

You’ve probably accumulated a lot of post/page revisions.WordPress Themes & Plugins

Your SPAM comments are starting to really take up space, and you keep meaning to go in and look at all those unapproved comments, but can’t find the time.

This is the kind of stuff that bogs your site down,  causing it to load slowly or time out altogether. It’s not only frustrating to your visitors, it also gives them a chance to click away before they even get a glance at your site.

If this seems to be happening to your site, it’s time to clean it up and do a little basic maintenance. AND it’s really simple to do with the  WP-Optimize plugin.  At the click of a button, this plugin will remove any unnecessary spam, revisions, and spam or unapproved comments from your database. It will also optimize your database tables by removing anything “extra and unnecessary”.

As always when trying a new plugin, be sure to create a database backup before you install and use this plugin. Once you have optimized your site, set the plugin to optimize it automatically every day, week, or month (based on how much you post to your site and how much SPAM/commenting happens on your site).  You will definitely notice a big change (and your hosting company will love you).

Leave me a comment about how this plugin worked for you. I’d love to hear.

Will Google’s major upcoming change seriously affect your business?

algorithm

Google announced in February 2015 that they will be changing their algorithm to include mobile ready sites as a marker in determining ranking in the search results. To quote them:

When it comes to search on mobile devices, users should get the most relevant and timely results, no matter if the information lives on mobile-friendly web pages or apps. As more people use mobile devices to access the internet, our algorithms have to adapt to these usage patterns.

Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results.

What this means is that to get a high ranking in the search results, or to continue getting good ranking, the theme on your WordPress site must be mobile friendly.  For example, the STUDIOPRESS themes have been mobile friendly for a very long time. These are the themes that I use exclusively when I build a WordPress website.

If you don’t know whether your site is ready for this change in the algorithm, click here to go to GOOGLE’S SITE where they have a tool in the sidebar to confirm whether your site’s theme is mobile friendly. It’s fast and easy to do, and well worth your time.

If you find that your theme is not mobile friendly, CONTACT ME as I have a package available that will update your site to an awesome mobile theme and get you ready for Google’s change.
