Optimizing Your Site


Beware of the plugins you are using that could slow down the site. Beware of the re-directs when removing or deleting sites. Search engines could penalize you if you are not handling the 401 errors.

One of our many objectives is to provide you a highly optimized platform to start your project with.

Page Load Speed

Each page automatically starts with a highly optimized page speed. Our objective is to have our users start with a very strong page loading speed in both desktop and mobile. However, the organizations' standard is constantly changing and inevitable. Please feel free to reach out to our team to report the score at [email protected], when the initial speed is not A+!

Search Engine Optimization

Content is very important in the page. This is what the search engine parses when it crawls the Web upon the user's search. Each site ideally should have a well written content to be able to rank higher in a given topic.

Through Sitecast's Content Hub and Sitecast Editor, we created a pretty dashboard to enable you to manage your content to boosts your SEO rating.

  1. Using the right HTML tag on your source code.
  2. Creating Blog Content.
    Do not Repeat Your Content in blog loop and the actual blog entry. We recommend to use Markdown when writing blog entries for your site. Sites written in plain text and clean HTML along side with great content gets reward from search engines. This future-proofs the content as it does not have dependency on any framework that could potentially change. Over time it is much more maintainable.
  3. Adding resource information.
    When the resource is created, add media, and description of the post. This is what is being indexed by the search engine. It very important for the content manager to fill in these fields to optimize each page on a site.
    Each resource you created could be modified from the Sitecast Content HUB.
    a. In the navigation bar, click the drop down, select and click the Content Hub. This will open a new tab that will direct you to the content management dashboard.
    b. Go to the "Resources" tab.
    c. Click "Edit".
    d. Fill out the "All" the fields to fully optimize your site.
  4. Managing URL re-directs.
    Through the Sitecast's Content HUB, you can configure all the URLs for your site by either doing a re-direct and catching the deadlinks. Search engines penalizes sites that does not clean up dead links. This usually results with lower ranking.
