End of Week #3


This week's main focus was on the performance of my wordpress site. I've had a hobby blog for a few years and never bothered to check speed, so I was horrified when I ran some speed tests from the United States and found that my landing page took 8 seconds to load. A combination of the W3 Total Cache plugin plus the StackPath CDN has got it down to acceptable levels.


  1. Optimized the website with W3 Total Cache and Stackpath CDN
  2. Designed a pricing table using Supsystic's "Pricing Table" plugin
  3. Hooked the pricing table up to WP sign-up forms
  4. Tested the file delivery method
  5. Set up an Adwords campaign with some longtail keywords
