Profitable Tech Podcast #6

my-site-loads-slowToday’s tech question: “My site loads slow, what can I do about it?”

Let’s look at three of the most common site slowing issues.

  • The first trouble spot to consider: Is your hosting server slowing you down?
  • Next, Are you using a caching plugin?  Paul recommends W3 Total Cache.
  • Finally, Are you optimizing your images for size?  (Smaller files load faster!)

More advice from Paul on improving load time.

We’re also talking about reaching income goals and the importance of being mentored by someone who shares your lifestyle goals.

Some Web Hosting Tips:

Don’t panic when you experience an outage – even a serious one.  Bad things happen to all web hosts eventually.  A string of outages however, can’t help but make you question the wisdom of sticking with a company.

If your websites are making you money and that income stream is important to you, be willing to invest in better hosting solutions.
