WordPress Speed Tips To Make Your Website Faster

WordPress SEO Infographics

 

Website Speed Is Now A Part Of Google’s Core Algorithm & An SEO Rank Factor

 

  • In July 2018, after months of alerting webmasters, Google rolled out a “Speed Update” to its core algorithm.
  • Google doesn’t give you credit for a fast WordPress site but punishes slower sites in its rankings.
  • It makes sense. Today’s mobile users dislike slow websites and are likely to “bounce” back to Google.com if a website doesn’t finish loading on a mobile phone within 3 – 4 seconds (even though the industry average is around 7 seconds).
  • A fast bounce back alerts Google that the website either did not answer the user search query or there may be a technical reason the user returned to Google so quickly.
  • Google gives points to sites where a user “dwells” (or spends an above average time on).  It is one sign that the user has found the answer to their search or may ever have discovered additional, relevant, and useful information they hadn’t thought of.
  • Google does not use your Google Analytics data but has their own internal analytics for their site.
  • A fast WordPress website is great for user experience, especially mobile phone users who now make up 65% Google’s searchers. Luckily, there are many free and premium plug-ins to make a WordPress site faster and improve SEO.
  • You can test the Google Page Speed Score by visiting a site such as GTMetrix with has all the features you need at no cost.
  • If you run the short test and find out your WordPress site has below average speed, I have years of professional experience improving site speed and SEO.

WordPress Delivers Many Paths Towards Excellent SEO

 

  • WordPress SEO is simple. When you build a website with WordPress, you do not have to know any programming language. No knowledge of PHP, HTML, CSS, or SQL is required. WordPress is easy to learn, set-up, and create content. You can build and launch a professional-looking WordPress website in a day or even a few hours. But you’ll need someone to fine-tune your website to optimize your WordPress SEO and site speed.
  • In 2018 WordPress turned 15 years old and now has thousands of loyal PHP programmers who have contributed to its development by building sophisticated themes and plugins to install easily and utilize. The number of webmasters of WordPress numbers in the tens of thousands.
  • There are hundreds of thousands of ready-made free and low-cost WordPress plugins and themes that perform great and functions to make your website look professional and bring you more traffic.
  • With WordPress, you can launch a fast-loading and mobile- website in very little time. There are plugins designed to help you compress images, minify code, cache files, compress images, and create speed enhancements.
  • The speed of a website is a ranking signal for Google. Users dislike slow websites.  A fast site is key for user experience, mobile device users, and SEO. Google launched a “Speed Update” in July 2018 that punishes slow sites. Google has analyzed the data and knows users stay longer on websites that load fast.
  • WordPress is made for mobile themes and easy to make mobile-friendly. Google has rolled out a “mobile-first” update because 65% of searches come from mobile phones.
  • With knowledge and skills, WordPress SEO is do-able, but it takes some time. WordPress was built from the ground-up to be an SEO friendly site.  With plugins like Yoast SEO to enhance the technical search engine optimization capabilities of WordPress, you can finally rank high in Google.
  • Best of all WordPress is free.

Google SEO Tips That Work In 2020

15 years of digital marketing experience

Google AdWords Management & SEO Optimization

 

  • Your content should have 1000 words to satisfy the searcher’s query fully, increase the user’s dwell time, and decrease the bounce rate. Content must be unique and each post should be focused on one main keyword and 3-4 related or LSI keyword. Place these keywords throughout your content in a URL name, Meta Title, internal links, external links, and alt-text of images. Place these keywords throughout your content.

 

  • Your site must have a low bounce rate and high dwell time.

 

  • Content should be written at for a moderate grade level with screenshots, graphics, videos, and photos.

 

  • Do not keyword stuff on your pages. Google views this as spam.

 

  • Take advantage of alt-text opportunities in images. Minor SEO effect but crucial for Google Images SEO placement.

 

  • Use an XML sitemap and submit to Google.

 

  • Create a robots.txt file.

 

  • Use SCHEMA J-SON to better classify your site for Google.

 

  • Use Google Analytics to track user traffic on your site.

 

  • Use Google Search Console to track keywords, position, CTR, and website errors.

 

 

  • Limit no-follow external links.

 

  • Obtain incoming links from high authority domains through outreach and guest posting.

 

  • Obtain citation directory links to enhance local SEO.

 

  • Create a Google My Business page and verify it. Optimize fully with the correct NAP, use your accurate Business name. Ensure the correct location on Google Maps. Add correct categories, quality geo-tagged photos, consistent posts, messaging, services and ensure the page is optimized fully. Request reviews from actual customers but do not incentivize or use fake reviews. Do not create additional GMB pages if you only service or have a store-front in one location.
