Double your BlogEngine Traffic in 60 Seconds

BlogEngine SEOSome time ago, I blogged about the increasing importance of performance, read page load speed, in the determination of "rank" by Google.

Then I noticed that most of my blog posts included an image and that there was a considerable lag, so I decided the quickest method of fixing this was to simply go into my settings and decrease the number of posts per page from five to three.

In just five months, the number of hits per months has gone from 9,977 for May to 13,542 for September, a 35% increase. In that time period, there were only three blog posts put out. Draw your own conclusions!

No, simply put - I'm saying that there is less page load time and this has a definite advantage when it comes to getting crawled by Google.

My blog is quite new andu is also on BlogEngine.NET. After reading your suggestion I changed the settings to show only three posts per page.

As you say it worked for you, will check the stats this week.

BE needs a performance boost and since I often use images in my blog posts, limiting the number of posts per page certainly helps with page load speed. Google likes fast sites! Wink
