Web Site Performance

Over the past few weeks, I have been doing a lot of looking around at web sites I run, and asking myself, “What can I do to make this web site better?”.  Well, after some experiments, trial and error, I have a few solutions I want to share with you.

Today I’ll hand to you four areas of your web site you can improve to get more web site visitors, have the search engines love you, and get more visitors to your web site, right here on the Web Hosting Show.

Here are just a few topics from this week’s episode:

  • How to Write a Better Title Tag – The title tag might be a feature many people overlook, but it is just as important as having a nice looking web site layout.  Some might even say it is the most important thing, because it is often the first thing a web site visitors sees.  Today I’ll be telling you what the title tag is and what you can do to make yours better.
  • Basic Writing Advice to Improve Web Page Flow – Do your web pages flow?  By flow, I mean can you read through it without asking yourself what is this about again?  If you find yourself stopping and starting when reading your own web pages, take this basic writing advice and try it out on your own web site content.
  • 6 Different Content Writing Ideas – Inspiration for a web site’s content is often hard to find.  So when I find myself in trouble, I turn towards my own list of six different content writing ideas that should help inspire you to get that new page up and running.
  • Effective Web Site Navigation Rules – A web site visitor should never be confused by your web site’s navigational layout.  Every web page out there should have an easy way to navigate both to new web pages and categories, but also back out of them.  Think of it as reaching a fork in an old country road, choosing to go down the left road – and then turning around and finding a pink hippopotamus in a tutu.

Quick Tip #3 – Your web site’s Meta Description should contain between 70 and 160 characters (spaces included).

Delays aside, I hope this web hosting podcast is one you can enjoy.  Feel free to send me your web development or hosting questions on the submit a question page, and leave a comment to let me know you listened.
