After seeing my web site traffic slow fading away over the passed 6 months, I decided to spend some time and investigate what could be the reasons for my decline in search engine traffic.
At it’s peak, my porn video blog had been reaching 30,000 uniques hits per day, which I was rather proud of. But, as I have already said, the numbers have fallen to just over 10% of that. But with my full-time porn video editing commitments, I was unable to spend too much time in getting my site optimised for todays’ google algorithms.
But after working extra hours on my editing work, I had gained enough spare time to spend a day trying to get my XXX Video Editor blog optimised and making money for me. The first thing I did was to switch from HTTP to HTTPS – this was something that came highly recommended on all the latest SEO blogs and web site that I visited. I never realised that Google now give preferential ranking HTTPS secured web sites.
I then visited a few web site analyser sites to see what kind of score I get from those types of sites. These sites analyse your site for load speed, SEO, security and vistor experience. My first score were around the 70% mark. My web site performance was letting me down. I never realised how much CSS and Java script coding was slowing my site down.
So the next thing to do was to speed up the page load time. I downloaded W3 Total Cache. This helped to bring my site analytic score up to 92%. I’ve very happy to say that my web site is now running faster than ever. This only took 3-4 hours of research and implementation.
I now also use much better link descriptions in my posts and hand write my content as much as possible. I’m looking forward to seeing how these changes effect my search engine traffic over the next few months.
