Wordpress

With the surging growth of Internet gadgets being sold and used worldwide, web design continues to evolve and adapt. This is where Responsive Web Design comes in. For those not familiar to this new design concept, Responsive Web Design (RWD) is essentially a web design technique that automatically adapts the content and layout of a web page according to the different media display sizes of these gadgets, from tiny smartphones to widescreen desktop displays. Thus, a responsive WordPress theme is a theme built to suit different client browsers across all gadgets and platforms. The main benefit of using responsive web design is making your site future-proof for new and upcoming types of devices without the need for creating another mobile version of your site.

Everyone knows the importance of site speed and its importance in retaining visitors and one of the best plugins for Wordpress in speeding up your site has to be W3C Total Cache.  For a long time I had used WP-Super Cache but found it to not necessarily work as I wanted it to.  I was always on the look out for something else and thanks to Joost De Valk I became more and more sold on the idea of W3C Total Cache, and frankly its awesome.However even though it has pretty good documentation and the install process is straightforward I found there was nowhere that really told me how to set up everything to get it working at its optimal settings.  Thats when I came across this tutorial.  I've included a downladable pdf of the guide if you would rather read this but the following information should help you optimise your websites load speed. I managed to take make my homepage load in 2.5 seconds and rank at 80 (Grade B) on YSlow, still with some work left to be done i.e HTML requests/CSS Sprites.
