Are Your Web Pages Slow to Load? Identify the Real Culprit.

Published : 21 November 2014

Slow Loading Website

A slow loading site is an issue that can rob you of a large percentage of your website traffic. People won’t wait for slow loading pages.

There are a number of different tools that allow you to check on how quickly your site is loading and most include suggestions on how to go about making improvements to your site.

But, sometimes finding the real culprit can be a touch tricky!

WebsiteTips4U has been loading way too slowly and it has been getting worse over the last couple of months.

Actually, I should clarify that statement: its slowness has been spasmodic. Sometimes it loads in what seems like lightning speed. Other times it almost times out.

Last updated : 1 October 2014

Internal Links

Have you implemented an internal linking strategy on your blog? Or more importantly, have you considered the Google ranking impact that such a strategy could have? This case study might well see you reconsidering your approach to internal linking.

When it comes to learning as much as possible about internet marketing, I must say that I get the most out of case studies.

I have found some brilliant ideas in list style posts but sometimes a long list of tips can be overwhelming. On the other hand, when I come across a published experiment, describing a Twitter strategy  for example, or a case study about generating  more blog traffic, then I’m sold!!  I make time to study it. 

So, rather than provide you with an exhaustive list of ideas about how to rank in Google, I’m sharing with you just one strategy I used in an experiment to see if I could rank a keyword on page 1 of Google.

If you have being trying for some time to improve the rankings of keywords that are sitting on page 3 or beyond, then this case study will be of interest to you. [Read more…]
