I’ve recently been doing lots of work with WordPress clients on their WordPress page speeds. As someone who develops exclusively on the WordPress platform, I’ve spoken with many clients who, over time, have noticed their websites slowing down, often to the point where they become practically unusable. Web page speed is important as it is one of the factors taken into account by Google when calculating how to rank websites, and so if your site is running slowly, you’re less likely to rank highly. Additionally… it annoys visitors, increases your ‘bounce rate’ and can lead to a drop in website conversions. Read On…
Just started working on a new project for AMH Air Conditioning Installations. The project is to build them a new WordPress website / theme, and then do some advanced SEO for them, right from helping to select the keywords and domain name through to creating unique content for their website / blog on a regular basis. AMH have been doing Air Conditioning Installations for some time, but have yet to manage to rank highly for relevant search terms and so they decided it was time to do something about it. Watch this space for results!
I’ve been working on the launch of the 2010 Review website for a couple of months now and am very excited to see it go live.
It’s a WordPress website with a twist: UK Commission for Employment and Skills, the client, wanted forum functionality on the site so that people could engage in discussions in a more structured manner than traditional blog comments permitted. After a bit of research into the best solution I hit on Buddypress, the plugin which turns WordPress into a private social network. One of the many social modules available within Buddypress is forums, so I used that.
Actually integrating Buddypress into your theme can be done using another plugin, but instead I opted to code the theme as a child theme of Buddymatic which is a port of the excellent Thematic theme framework.
In addition to the forums, the site has some additional custom php coding, for example we’re created a special ‘library’ page which features thumbnails of all posts with a specific tag which is updated on the fly.
E-commerce website for a local cafe and coffee roastery based in Broadway Market. The website was designed & built on the popular WordPress publishing platform, providing the client with an easy to use interface for updating their own store.
Whereas the site currently only features about 10 products, there is scope for unlimited products should the client chose to expand their range. In addition to the design & build, I provided SEO consultancy to help the client choose their keywords, and then optimised the site for a range of terms.
The site ranks highly in search engines for all the chosen keywords, and is already generating high levels of organic search traffic. This resulted in the first sale of coffee within days of launch and a very happy client.
