The Missing Visitor Metric – The Interactive #79

Big news about the Oxygen website design this week — Colin is just about ready to launch the website template, and should have it in the catalog (https://www.i3dthemes.com/) by the end of next week.  He’ll continue work on the WordPress theme after that.

In the code lab, I’ve been focusing on Server Response time, and improving that within our Pegasaas Accelerator WordPress plugin (https://pegasaas.com/).

Season 2?! [Interactive #53 – S2E1]

It’s hard to believe that this week last year we did our very first “weekly recap”, what we now call our “interactives”.

52 weekly — usually about 3pm Pacific, each Friday — episodes since then, and we’ve come a long way. Not only has our comfort level with “going live” grown, but we have now launched our Pegasaas Accelerator system which provides automated WordPress PageSpeed optimization.

If you run a WordPress site, you probably already realize how an impossible task it is to try to optimize your site for PageSpeed… unless, of course, you’re running Pegasaas.
