Why is Your websites performance important?

In a nutshell, your Google ranking. The content (wording) on your website is the most important thing to your Google ranking, no doubt. However, if you have a wonderful website that Google wants to rank well but it takes an age to load the page in, you won’t keep your ranking – this applies to your mobile site as well.

I like to ask, “Does your website make your clients happy?”

Most people look at me like I’m crazy and don’t know how to respond.

Then I say, “But I bet you can tell me about at least one website that made you unhappy!”

That they can usually do!

The main problem being the website wouldn’t load and they didn’t want to hang around. No one wants to hang around for a web page to load. They can get what you’re offering on the next link in Google, and that’s what they do.

How many leads are you missing out on because they went to your competitor’s website instead? Don’t leave your potential clients feeling unhappy with you before you have even gotten a chance to show them how great you are.

If your not sure whether your website’s page speed needs improving take our Page Speed Quiz and find out! You will also get a FREE GTmetrix report with my advice and comments to explain what it all means.

What is included in the PAGE SPEED Optimisation Package

Whilst the testing website GTmetrix is good indicator as to any issues on your website there are other things that go into having a well performing website. All of these are addressed in the Page Speed Optimisation Package the only thing I DO NOT do is write content for you, but I will help and advise.

What is included in the PAGE SPEED Optimisation Package

I will look at all of the issues GTmetrix is flagging up and aim to get both your Performance and Structure scores above 90%. It is almost impossible to get both scores to 100% as there would be almost nothing appealing about your website to visitors. It would just be plain text and images, but I will get the best scores possible out of your website.

If it becomes clear to me that the Performance and Structure scores can not be reached with your website content, theme or plugins as they stand I will go through your options with you. Usually swapping content around and substituting plugins is all that is needed, which is all included in the price. However, if the website theme needs redesigning their will be a further cost. Nothing will be done that incurs extra costs without your consent.

I will look at your DNS setting and migrate you over to Cloudflare – please don’t panic nothing will happen to your website or emails! (That’s why I’m doing it!) Cloudflare has 2 options, a free and a paid for option – the paid for option is £5 per month, and I will only recommend we go for the paid for option if I can not reach the require performance without it. Those usually requiring the paid for version of Cloudflare have a content builder plugin on their website such as Elementor.

***Added bonus of using Cloudflare is that you will never have to pay for an SSL certificate again, I will set it all up for you. Just don’t forget to cancel your certificate when it is due to renew!***

I will devle into my WordPress bag of tricks! Essentailly there are a few tweaks that can be made to the WordPress core code that will help improve your page speed. Whichever are needed for your website will be implemented. I would go into detail about php.ini files and increasing the server speed in your config file but well lets face it, that’s what I’m here for! Let’s just say I will work my coding magic!

I will optimise your meta data and page titles. However please note that I can only optimise the content that is already written and live on your site. I will NOT write content. I take the keywords from your content and using this information optimise your page titles and meta data.

I will optimise your in content titles, this is different from your page titles. I will make sure that the correct <h1><h2><h3> tags are used in the right places, at the right frequency and are optimised for the page. This means I will make sure all the visible headings on your page are given the correct title tag (this is a way we can tell Google to pay a little more attention to the wording in the tag). There are rules to this you cannot give everything a <h1> tag.

I will look at the navigation menus to make sure it is easy to use for your clients and contains all the pages that need and should be there. A difficult to navigate website never made anyone happy! This isn’t really a page speed optimisation but it is essential to your website. I will also make sure a XHTML site map is submitted to Google for your site. This is just a list of all the pages your website contains in an easy-to-read format for Google. This does not mean all your pages will be indexed – no one can tell Google what to do, only suggest!
I will look at how you have your blog set up. Every theme will offer a solution to placing a blog on your website. However, most don’t allow you to optimise your blog page, the actual page the blog snippets sit on. It is a minor advantage but one that most website owners don’t do.

I will check how you are linking through to your social media. Firstly, I will check that what you have in place is working, that the links aren’t broken. Then make sure that if you are embedding any feeds (which I don’t recommend – you have no control over what pops up in the box with regards to optimisation) they are embedded in the best way possible for optimisation. I will also add a sharing plugin if you don’t currently use one. This allows people to share your blog to their social media without leaving the page or copy pasting. I will also add a blog signature to your blog posts containing your social media links and a link to the home page. You can then copy and paste this onto every new blog and fulfil your external and internal link requirements for every blog.
I will look at all your internal linking and optimise for your page’s keywords. Wherever you have linked to another page within your website content and used a generic term such as “click here” I will replace with optimised keyword content. I will also look at where you can add extra internal links throughout your content. This is another one that won’t help your page speed but is really good practise for a good Google ranking, let’s just say this one is on me!

Frequently Asked Questions

It usually takes me around 2 weeks to complete everything for you.

I just need your WordPress admin login details. Your hosting control panel login details, and your domain name control panel login details (these are normally the same as the hosting details).

You will be able to test your website in GTmetrix to see your performance improvement straight away. Google does take longer. It takes up to 6 weeks for Google to index the entire internet (its doesn’t quite work like that) but you should see results within 6 weeks.

Ideally once your website is the best it can be for Google, right now, you should have a maintenance package that addresses performance changes on your website. Basically, your WordPress website code will change over time with updates being added. Therefore you will need to update your Page Speed Performance Optimisation in line with it. This is best done on a monthly basis but at the very least a 6 monthly basis. I also offer maintenance packages that cover ongoing Page Speed Performance Optimisation.

My first question would be why? Why wouldn’t you want to use your greatest online sales tool? Could you ever imagine a big business doing that? In fact I challenge you to find me a big business that only uses its website as a placeholder! How do you think they became a big business? I can tell you with certainty online marketing and their website is defiantly a top priority! It should be yours too. The most difficult thing to do is to get new business. Google will give you “hot” leads, people who are actually searching for your service. They are so much easier to convert. Yes it might take a little effort, time or money but doesn’t every form of marketing? Okay okay I will get off my soap box! I just think if you spent all that money to get a WordPress website you should at least use it to recoup what you spent.

Kelly has been looking after our website for many years. She is very proactive and has always been able to sort things out efficiently and quickly. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is starting out but also to people with an established business. Her maintenance package gives me peace of mind and I know that my website is protected. Finally I found someone who can help me make my business website work for my business. Thank you Kelly. 🙂
