Ways to Speed up WordPress JavaScript without Coding

Hey Everyone!

As WordPress gets more sophisticated and WordPress Themes become more interesting, powerful and complex, the code itself begins to bog down.  One of the better ways to troubleshoot this issues is by using Google Developers PageSpeed Insights.

I just had to do some research on a photographer’s WordPress site to attempt to fix some of these problems. Here are some links to plugins that will help in this process.

Gagan: It’s the basics. Have good creative. Write better creative, and leverage technology resources to do so if you can’t on your own. Differentiate your brand.

Frank: Data and data quality. Look outside your budget, your existing PPC capabilities and make sure you’re optimizing the quality of your data you’re creating on your site.

Google CEO Eric Schmidt ~ Security Versus Privacy

Google Privacy
Too many wrongly characterize the debate as “security versus privacy.” The real choice is liberty versus control. Tyranny, whether it arises under threat of foreign physical attack or under constant domestic authoritative scrutiny, is still tyranny. Liberty requires security without intrusion, security plus privacy. Widespread police surveillance is the very definition of a police state. And that’s why we should champion privacy even when we have nothing to hide. My Reaction to Eric Schmidt ~ Bruce Schneier

The four authors listed here are some of the huge success stories, one very recent (Fan Fiction Writer) and the other three forged over the last few years in the crucible of Amazon by giving away their early work for free. Think of it as a ‘loss lead’ on steroids for authors.
