A fast website is good for your visitors, and it’s good for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) ranking in Google. One way to get your website to load fast is to reduce the size of what needs to load when a visitor goes to your website. Pictures can be a huge contributor to your website’s page size. How can you fix this? Let’s talk about how to Speed up WordPress with Image Optimization.
Most people have pictures on their website. If you don’t have any pictures, you probably should! When these pictures are original works you don’t want other people using them. Another reason to add a watermark is if you want your logo on your pictures so people can identify your brand.
One way to help do that is by adding a watermark. Using a WordPress Plugin, you can automatically add a watermark to your pictures.
Some websites offer a “service” to create their own call to action over top of any website. Why is this a problem? If some other person is using your content with their own call to action or ads on top it can appear that they created the content.
They are getting the benefit from your content. Some would consider that content theft. At best it’s pretty shady.
WordPress is a popular platform. And with that popularity, sometimes it creates unwanted attention. Having a large number of websites all running the same software could create an easy target if there is a security vulnerability.
Don’t let your website fall behind with updates. Keeping WordPress up to date also helps to keep your WordPress site secure.
