Nowadays, if your website doesn’t appear on the first page of Google search results, it means you are practically invisible to your potential users. And if you want Google to love you more and bump you up, one of the most important things you need to do is improve your WP site performance. Plus, your users will be happier not to have to go for a coffee while your page is loading 😉
Let’s see what you can do in order to optimize your website performance.
Optimized and properly sized images for each visitor’s device – wouldn’t be nice to have a service to deliver just that?
The ShortPixel Adaptive Images plugin does exactly that and it doesn’t stop there. It brings to the table automatic WebP delivery to the compatible browsers, lazy loading, SVG placeholders and smart cropping – all these delicious features that improve the experience of your site’s visitors.
And, also very important: the images are served through ShortPixel’s global CDN.
Visitors from different parts of the world get your website’s pictures from the nearest server included in our Content Delivery Network. This translates into websites that are even faster.
Does it sound interesting enough to try it? ShortPixel Adaptive Images is free until April 15.
One of the modern-day requirements for business owners is having a website they can rely on. The challenges in building a website are coming up with a great design and boosting the site’s ranking in web searches.
A site’s design can affect its ranking. A well-designed website helps your business earn a better position in search engine results pages, especially in Google Search.
Last year we took over the development of Regenerate Thumbnails Advanced plugin and spent a lot of time and effort on rewriting the plugin from scratch. We are quite pleased with the results as we added some new and useful features like “Delete Associated Thumbs” that can be very useful to clean up old-and-not-anymore-used thumbnails that just take up disk space.
We invite you to give this new plugin a try and see how it works for your website. You can download it from here and just install it on your blog. If you don’t feel comfortable to test a BETA plugin on your production website you can install it on a sandbox system.
Making a backup of your website before testing is recommended and generally a good idea 🙂
Once you’ve tested it we invite you to share your experience (and bugs :-)) with us here or via email at help-at-ShortPixel.com.
Smartphones are much more than communication devices, mostly if your interests revolve around photography, graphic design and social media. For the ones eager to capture the best shots, the camera is one of the most important factors to consider when purchasing a new phone.
