Page Speed Optimization

"My web pages are slow, and I know that page speed greatly affects Search Engine Ranking Placement (SERP). What can I do?"

If your website is just a set of static pages that are hosted somewhere, then you're among the lucky few in an the advantageous position of having pretty fast page-loads already, but there's a checklist of things you can do to ensure that your pages are screamingly fast. Now, I can give you that checklist, sure, but you could find it on the web yourself (which you should), but I would like you to consider that this is something that, over time, requires ongoing work to maintain. It turns out that I've developed a pretty solid process for managing a ton of static assets (HTML, CSS, Javascript, and images) and ensuring that every time you make a change to your website, you're still running at OPTIMAL page speed levels.

If you're running your websites on a CMS, you've typically got your hands tied when it comes to making blazing fast pages, but you can still do a lot to ensure you're as fast as you can get. Through a series of plugins and refactoring your code, we can get you moving pretty darn quickly, and that will have a major impact on your ability to have good SEO.
