WordPress + Loading Speed + SSL + Optimization
Last active: 1 day ago
My specialty is loading speed and on-site optimization re: WordPress websites. Specifically, I can optimize your DNS records, web server (VPS), WordPress (cache, plugins, etc) and source code (HTML, CSS, JS, fonts, images, etc) to be more efficient and secure. I am well versed in WordPress (#1 on oDesk), WooCommerce, Nginx servers, CloudFlare, SSL certificates, and SEO.
Loading speed and SSL are now two of the biggest factors in SEO according to Google, whose robots are constantly analyzing the quality of your website. Don't get left behind by the competition.

Whether you need a one-time consultation, or fully managed WordPress hosting, I am not shy in making important suggestions that will improve the experience of your customers.
