Tuesday Turn About Link Party 117

We are so happy to be back with you for Tuesday Turn About Link Party 117.

I hope that you had a great weekend. I spent some time decorating pumpkins while watching the finals of the US Open.

Once again, thank you for sharing with your creations with us and all our other visitors.

The party is now open.

Here is TTA 116 if you would like to visit again.

CAROL’S BLOGGER TIP ~ Three Site Speed Tips

These site speed tips are from Neil Patel, an SEO, Blog Marketing guru.

“Improving your site speed is one of the easiest ways to increase your rankings in Google.

In fact, Amazon found that just a one-second increase in load time decreased their revenue by a corresponding 1%. That adds up!

The good news is, it’s way easier to improve your load times than write a 5,000-word blog post.

Here are three techniques you can start implementing immediately:

  1. Include the trailing slash at the end of the URL. By doing so, you’re telling the server there are no file directories to search, and this page is the final destination. So, instead of, your URL should read (Me speaking: check out the links I shared for my posts.)
  2. Compress and optimize Images: as a general rule, you never want your images to be more than 1MB
  3. Use caching. When a site caches, the server saves copies of its pages, so it doesn’t have to start from scratch every time it loads the site.

Me: Fortunately for Ezoic users (affiliate link) like me, image compression and optimization and caching is part of their LEAP technology so I was able to delete those plugins from my site. That helps to increase site speed, too.

BOTTOM LINE: Take these easy steps to increase your site speed.

Now, let’s see what your hostesses were up to last week.

I can’t decide whether to use my pumpkin and flower wreath from last year or make a new one. If I make a new one, I will probably  use this pretty fall wreath from Cindy at Reinvented Delaware as my inspiration.

I’m on a pumpkin project spree. I’ve been dying to make one with a sweater. I haven’t found a sweater yet, but when I do, I’ll follow this tutorial from Kippi at Kippi at Home.

Why do I love this fall project from Beverly of Across the Boulevard? Because I have white pumpkins and I have a very similar wire basket. It’s actually an egg basket that I bought in Roundtop several years ago.
