improvement, improving server response time, if you work with GoDaddy or Bluehost, or something like that, talk to them, have them help you out where they can actually reduce the amount of time that it takes for the server to talk to wherever your website is, then optimizing your images. So make sure that those images are high quality and responsive and look great but are small. So basically figure out the size baby size that you need to have it and make sure you you only have it at that height, you don't need a two or 3000 pixel image, and then uploading it onto a blog post that's only about 600 pixels wide. So figure out a way to make sure well, if it's on a phone, but nevermind. So make sure you're reducing those images or get an app that can actually connect to it that will actually just reduce the file size of those images. Because images are probably one of the heavier things that have to load that or video. And then the last thing I had was turn your blog posts into MP. So it's accelerated mobile pages. So basically what that is, is you're taking all of the content that you've written in your blog post, and you're, there's an app for all this kind of crap. So you basically just connect it and say, here's my title. Here's my description. Here's the author. Here's this just like you would do with a product catalog for Merchant Center, and then puts it into a template that Google created. So when you use an ASP page on Google, it's not going to be as pretty, it's not going to have all the cool bells and whistles that your website may have, you can obviously still read redirect, and they'll still be pixel and things like that. But it's going to load in like a second flat, like ridiculously flat fast. If you've ever done Instant Articles on Facebook, it's the same concept. So it's basically native to Google. Instant Articles are native to Facebook, so they will load much, much quicker. I suggest do those for blog posts, I don't like doing them from products because all the extra bells and whistles that I do have I want to keep, but for a blog post when they're just there to get some information, and I want that to load as fast as it can. And then always just keep an eye on what your average speed is on Google Analytics. So go check it out. Make sure you watch it, I check it probably every week or two. When we do like an audit, which is usually on like a monthly basis that will obviously get checked in and we'll document where it's been at. But sometimes you will see that it will spike or something and you need To figure out what did you do on that day that caused the spike? Or maybe it's slowly trending up, like went into trend start, I need to figure out what happened there. Because site speed is becoming big, it's becoming a real thing, or you need to get that down to as low as you possibly can. Everyone always asked me what's a good Page Speed. And it kind of depends on the page. My personal preference, I like to get it down to an average of three seconds or less. Two and a half is usually better for me. But again, kind of depends on how much stuff you have in your site. But that's all I had for today. So thank you rate review, subscribe.
