THE KEY TAKE AWAYS
Fortunately, we all make human mistakes in this robotic, bot-driven, tech-world to be. That’s fine in my book. I’m glad Hubspot and Google are not perfect as neither am I.
Page optimization as you can see, is on a “per page” basis, so don’t forget for organic placement, google likes consistency. Serving some pages with optimized images and others not may mean the difference as to whether that page shows on the first page of google for it’s targeted audience. There is an array of factors which earn or deduct points – from content, to page speed. So don’t just optimize the home page, you need to rinse and repeat for the whole website. Once that’s done, just remember to keep optimizing as you write each post or page and you’ll be whizzing along!
As a design agency, I initially went down the AMP or “minimal” design thought process. AMP, or Accelerated Mobile Pages – designed as it says to accelerate the page load time. Now I want to strike a balance, one that gives my business the opportunity to show some creative flair. Images and visual interactive elements help that goal. It can also be best achieved with a dedicated mobile website like Browserweb has chosen.
Right around the corner, AMP and pre-loading pages will be available as open source and premium offerings. In the interim, I’ll stick with optimizing WordPress themes for desktop and mobile using clever techniques – they call it common sense. As I always say, be a leader for your Brand, not a follower and you’ll be setup for success.
