7 SECRETS TO MAKE YOUR BLOG LOAD FASTER

"7 SECRETS TO MAKE YOUR BLOG LOAD FASTER"In my previous post I gave you 7 tips to make your blog attractive. It you missed this article, you can read it HERE. In this post, I would
Ike to give you 7 SECRETS TO MAKE YOUR BLOG LOAD FASTER.

 

WHY A FAST LOADING BLOG IS IMPORTANT?

Online Network Marketing process includes several steps which you have to go through before any of your website visitor becomes eventually a customer. In a nutshell, you need to:
– decide what to sell
– write about it on your blog or website
– publish your post on various networks
– get your content on top of search engines
– get online visitors to open your page
– keep these visitors on your page

Unless you do that, you might have the best product in the world, you will never sell anything because nobody will ever know about your blog and what you are trying to achieve.

To get visitors to open your page and read your content, it is important that your blog loads fast, otherwise visitors will probably close the browser before your page even opens. What should you do to ensure fast load of your blog? Here are 7 tips to make your blog load faster:

SECRET#1: RELIABLE HOSTING

Whatever you decide to use shared or private hosting, reliability of your hosting server is essential to ensure consistent, failure proofing decent speed of loading of your page and content when someone clicks on your blog link. I found an excellent provider who host all my websites for FREE HERE.

SECRET#2: UPDATED & WORKING PLUGINS

A failing plugin could slow down the loading of your blog significantly. It is not enough to install plugins and to forget about them. You should monitor your blog on daily basis to ensure that your plugins are updated and working. WordPress posts messages on your dashboard to inform you when a plugin needs an upgrade and it can be done automatically with one click.

SECRET#3: UPDATED & WORKING WIDGETS

Defective widgets could seriously slow down the loading of your blog as well. After having installed a widget on my blog side bar, I don't hesitate to delete it if I notice that it is compromising the speed of my blog.

SECRET#4: NO BROKEN LINKS

Broken links have also an important impact on the speed of your blog. On WordPress, it is possible to set up email reminders to inform you if a link is broken on your blog. Once that is the case, go to your dashboard/broken link and “unlink” the website that is not responding from your blog.

SECRET#5: SHORT VIDEOS

Large videos, or videos which are hosted on a non reliable server, will take a huge amount of time and memory to load when someone will open your blog. Instead, embed only short videos which are hosted on a reliable and fast server. Test the video prior to embedding it in your blog.

SECRET#6: SMALL IMAGE SIZE

Insert only small or medium size images inside your posts. If you link an image to another blog or website, make sure also that it is loading fast.

SECRET#7: CLEAR CACHE

"W3 Total Cache"

Finally, you should empty the various caches on your blog on regular basis. It is an easy operation that I recommend you do every time you visit your dashboard. It can also be done automatically if you install few simple plugins that will do it for you. I recommend installing:

* W3 Total Cache by W3 Edge
* FV Gravatar Cache
* WP Widget Cache

Your blog is your home and it is also the door of your online shop. Therefore, you should always ensure that it is clean and that this door opens fast enough to avoid bouncing your visitors.

    1. Thank you April. Yes I regularly check broken links because sometimes, if one of my posts’ link does not load properly for some reason, WP would consider it as a broken link, which would make my post unavailable. Best regards. Axel
