BeBizzy Break Podcast : Episode 46 – #NetNeutrality Day of Action

Hosted by : Marv Dorner, owner of BeBizzy Consulting

Today’s episode is a quick view of #NetNeutrality.

If you’re unfamiliar with Net Neutrality, it’s simply the call to ensure the same speed, access and availability for all websites… basically what we have now.

Many companies, and of course some internet providers, would love to have priority access to the web, making their sites run at full speed, and throttling the rest of the websites.

Many people and companies are speaking out in defense of net neutrality, including Tim Berners-Lee, the man many credit with inventing the internet.

Join in the discussion and defend Net Neutrality by getting involved on Twitter using the #NetNeutrality hashtag, communicating with friends, family and elected officials, and supporting the companies listed on this article from the Verge.

BBP : EP 26 – Make WordPress Go Faster

BBP : EP 26 – Make WordPress Go Faster

There are two complaints when a client is discussing the option of moving to WordPress.

  1. WordPress isn’t secure. Something I discussed in a previous blog post – Is WordPress Safe?
  2. How can I make my slow WordPress site faster? And besides being a recent blog post, we discuss that on this week’s BeBizzy Break Podcast.

Make WordPress Faster

Of all the things that will make customers leave your site before they consume any of your information, images, videos or any other sort of content, a slow loading site is #1 on the list.

Many things cause slow sites, and on today’s episode of the BeBizzy Break Podcast we will talk a bit about them.

  1. Making your server run better and serve up the pages quicker.
  2. Installing and turning on page caching to make sure returning visitors see pages faster
  3. Compressing and resizing images to decrease the file size being sent to the brower.
  4. Turning off and removing unused plugins and themes on the page to reduce the number of calls and possible security holes.
  5. “Minifying” CSS, javascript and HTML to decrease the number of files that have to be loaded to make the hidden portion of the website work. This is the most technical fix of the five, so make sure you are backing up the files AND database prior to messing around with this process.

Speeding up WordPress is something that can be achieved if done correctly, so either get dirty and clean up your website, or contact BeBizzy Consulting today and we will take a look and see how we can decrease your page load times.

BBP: Episode 18 – Closing Datamarket, Get AMP’d & Corrected Facebook Data

Happy Monday, everyone! Just a quick podcast today as I’m heading out of town for a client meeting.

Episode 18 – Closing the Datamarket, Get AMP’d & Facebook Reporting Errors

  • Google has announced last week that while it likes mobile sites to be build with AMP (accelerated mobile page) in mind, it will still show desktop site results above AMP sites, even in mobile searches.
    • Takeaway might be to put AMP design on the back burner and focus on responsive right now.
  • Microsoft Azure Datamarket is closing March 31, 2017.
    • Start looking for alternatives now to avoid the rush
  • Facebook acknowledged it found reporting issues in video views and more back in September and it has adjusted numbers accordingly.
    • The company has promised to bring in more 3rd party data reviews to ensure the accuracy of information.

That’s it for today!
