2 Improvements to Increase Your Websites Performance and Income with One Hour of Effort!

As always I have been busy doing multiple things over the last few weeks. One activity that has kept me hoping lately is purchasing websites.

When I take ownership of these sites I don’t like to make too many changes right away I just change out the affiliate links/adsense, add some more content and setup analytics.

Lately I have added two additional steps to instantly improve the sites performance.

Whether you have purchased a site or have a neglected site here are a couple great activities you can execute to improve your site in 1hr!

ONE – Improve Websites Speed (20 minutes)

Improving your websites speed does not need to be difficult or expensive. There is one very easy thing you can do to get exceptional website speed even on inexpensive shared hosting accounts.

The easiest way to speed up your site without doing anything else is setting up CloudFlare.


Using CloudFlare does not take much to setup and can instantly make your site faster and more secure.

Even the Free option is enough to deliver great results.


One Tip – I would suggest making sure your hosting provider supports CloudFlare since some expensive hosts like WPEngine or similar have their own CDN.

The combination of a reliable inexpensive host with a well optimized wordpress site with CloudFlare setup competes with even the most expensive premium hosts!

Using my current favorite host SiteGround here are the speed results compared to the Premium Host (WPEngine) I use…


Others have had some similar remarkable results with CloudFlare…

TWO – Pick Top 5 Most Visited Pages & Improve Monetization (40 minutes)

This is the lowest hanging fruit you can almost ever do with a website. Simply execute the following steps:

  1. Login to Google Analytics
  2. Go to Behavior
  3. Go To Site Content
  4. Go To All Pages

By selecting the top 5 posts will often result in you capturing 75% of the traffic. Creating custom monetization strategies for each of those pages can result in massive income growth.

What monetization options should you consider?

  • Test out affiliate offers with a strong call to action at the top of the page
  • Find a CPA or Lead Gen offer that is a good match to promote
  • Create your own product to sell on the site
  • Sell a service
  • Sell your own physical product (adding private label product via Amazon FBA to your site)
  • Get creative

Wrap Up

This post is short simple post just like the strategies! There is nothing complex about them and the results can be huge!
