End of Week #3

wavehopper

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.

Completed:

  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
