Our last post about Site Speed Optimizer – Yahoo YSlow and Google Page Speed surprisingly sets off a fanfare of discussion among ourselves during Lunar New Year of the Tiger. Perhaps my blogger friends in China get more vacations than we do in Hong Kong. Haha!!
Like many of them, TG does everything on my own – from web design, blogging to SEO. To get the problems fixed is indeed a great challenge.
TG at Kelikuru.com hardly calls myself a site optimizer guru as it takes a lot of time and expertise to perform the optimization across the site. Site tune-up and analysis is very different from landing pages or channels optimization in terms of scale and ranges of service.
To enhance our sites’ usability, we need to perform a site analysis periodically. Besides Google Webmaster tool and Analytics, linkvendor.com and SEO Workers are another tools you may want to try, which cover a wider spectrum.
It checks technical side of your site along with other high-level parameters including SEO Statistics, Social Media Entries and Linkings. We can easily use the graphical charts to talk out a solution somehow as we are all visual-minded persons.
My friend also recommends Michael Gray’s How to speed up wordpress, which focuses more on WordPress usability. Mr Gray was able to bring the page download time down to 5 seconds or less.
Once have your feet wet, got to clean them up to stay warm!!
