About website response

About website response

Website response is one of the key factors to rank your website higher. There are a few reasons can cause a lower website. One of the common factors most site audit tools mentioned is server response.

As long the server is not overpopulated I will doubt this is a good reason. this rule should be deprecated. The modern web server with HTTP/2 should not be considered.

In my opinion, A slow website caused by these reasons;

Database – if the database is slow, this can affect the output on the website. The webmaster should tweak the database configuration if he or she can speed up the process.

External fonts from Google, for example, can slow down your website.

CSS and JS slow down a website. Everyone likes fancy and colourful websites. As soon as they looked beautiful and impressive, you are paying for the price, it is slowness.

Other queries, like a map, images from an external source can slow down a website.

High pixel and a big image is a common factor for a slow website. The clear and sharp image is larger in size, it increases the loading time especially for the slower internet users.

WordPress is easy to use, many good plugins are free. The more plugins you have enabled, the website is lower.

Fail to use gzip or known as deflate, this module in Apache web server helps to reduce the size of the loading page.

‘Failed to leverage with the browser’s cache. Like images, you can add expire header to cache it on the visitor’s browser for a period of time.

There are ways to reduce website loading but the question is how much. It might not be significant to some. There are a few services you can consider; A free Cloudflare but I prefer Sucuri as I experienced slower loading on Free Cloudflare. A good image compression utility but not losing the quality. Use CDN, if you are serving globally. I will see the points of using CDN if your visitor is limited to your hosted area.

If you are using WordPress, you a good caching plugin like WP-Rocket, it is a premium plugin but I think it is worth investing. Feel free to write to me if you have questions or things to share.

 

 

 

 

 

Above the fold affects SEO?

Above the fold affects SEO?

Again, we are sharing one of the top mistakes on most websites have made is ‘Above the fold’.

Above the fold is listed on most website auditing tools as high priority error to fix. Thus, you can see how much it has weighted in SEO.

The concept of above the fold goes back a long time ago, to the beginnings of the Newspapers probably, and it is due to the way how it is printed on the front of the newspaper, was folded when they are sold at the newsstands. Hence the top half of the newspaper is shown to the passerby.

So, it has explained the 1st seen of the page anything you have to scroll down is under the fold. In my opinion, this is a similar nature to TTFB (to the first byte). If you have a good score in TTFB, I dare to say you have overcome the above the fold restriction.

Maybe I’m wrong. Can someone share?

Improve website ranking (content)

Improve website ranking

Today, we ain’t talking about web hosting but it is SEO related. How to improve your website ranking in Search Engine listings. I’m ain’t no expert neither it is my living tool. But I’m immersed in this topic on and off for the past few years. So, I’m taking the opportunity to share.

Write Relevant Content
Quality content is the number one rider of your search engine rankings and there is simply no substitute for wonderful articles. Quality content created specifically for your designed customer raises website traffic, which boosts the site’s authority and relevance. Fine tune your web writing capabilities.

Determine and focus on a keyword phrase for each web page. Think about the best way your reader may possibly search for that certain webpage (with the terms just like “web hosting in Singapore,” “best-shared web hosting,” or “Fast web hosting”). Then, repeat this phrase several times throughout the page once or twice in the opening and closing the sentences, and several to four more times throughout the remaining articles.

Don’t forget to use strong, italics, heading tags like an H1, and other emphasis tags to highlight these types of keyword phrases but do not overdo it. You still need your language and composing style to read naturally. Under no circumstances sacrifice great composing for SEO. The better webpages are created for the user, not for the search engine.

Update Your Articles Regularly
You have most likely noticed that all of us feel quite highly about content material. Search engines do, also. On a regular basis kept up to date content is viewed as one of the best signals of a site’s relevancy

Title Metadata
Title metadata is responsible for that page titles shown at the top of an internet browser windows and as one of the subjects within just search engine results. It is the most important metadata on your webpage. For those with a CMS site, the web staff has developed an automated program for creating the meta title for each website.

Description Metadata
Description metadata is the literal description that an internet browser may use in your web page search result return. Think of it as the site’s windows display-an exact and interesting description of what is comprised within, with the goal of telling people to get into. A good meta description will certainly typically consist of two full sentences. Search engines may not always use your meta description, but it is important to give them all the option.

Keyword Metadata
Keyword metadata is hardly ever if ever used to tabulate search engine rankings. On the other hand, you should already know the keyword phrases, so it does not harm to add them into your keyword metadata. You will want to include a variety of key phrases. As a general rule, try to keep it to approximately 6-8 phrases with every phrase consisting of 1-4 words. A great example would be “cheap web hosting in Singapore.”

Have a links worthy site
Focus on constructing important links within the wording. Instead of needing “click here” links, try composing out the identity of the spot. “Click here” has no search engine benefit past the included URL, while “cheap web hosting” is definitely rich with keywords and will improve your search engine rankings as well as the rank of the webpage you are backlinking to. Always use descriptive web links by connecting keywords-it not only enhances search engine optimization but also gives benefit to your visitors, including those with disabilities or who are using display screen readers.

Use alt tags
Always describe your video or graphics and online video media using alt tags, or alternative text descriptions. They enable search engines to locate the webpage, which is crucial-especially for those who make use of text-only internet browsers or screen readers.

 

Beg to differ

SEO2Beg to differ

It was sometimes ago asking myself, web hosting is behaving such for the last decade, is it time for a change? Web hosting basically transformed for the past few years but horizontally I supposed. We can see virtualization in many ways, storage has become larger etc.

Wait for a second, we are talking about its technologies but why do you need all these if you are getting them the same amount of customers. How do we increase the population in this pool?

Yes, the website must be there to draw online audiences. Now, the question is on how? I dive in and found myself the answer, online marketing.

Online marketing has become so important for web presence. However, it is neglected by many businesses. I personally feel that the economy in Singapore is restricted or we can say the resource is limited.

To expand this area, the fastest way is doing it online. Everything comes with a cost, they aren’t free. Either you invest in sacrificing more personal time or more money spent.

There are the cheaper method or the more expensive method doing it. I reckon that getting people to do it is the most expensive but you will spend less personal time and more effective.

I found backlinks from the reputable website has been effective. This especially for owners with a tight budget. Backlinks help in a way but your website content and complied to search engines is relatively important.

There are many site auditing tools to help you with this. They might cost you money but I think these expenses are quite reasonable.

At Vastspace, we have the knowledge on this to share with. Even results vary. But it is definitely better than you wait for the search engine bots to dig your website content or your online visitors have noticed your website.
