SAC Challenge update and what I have learned this week.

Last Update: May 22, 2019

I wanted to get this posted before I start the new tasks come out for the coming month.

This week in the challenge:

I have made an effort to spend more time in chat and also to answer questions people have.

What I have learned this week:

Optimizing Images:

I am trying to figure out how to compress the images on my site, I check the site loading speed and it is slow.... So I need to figure this out and these are some tutorials I read to learn how to optimize my images.

This one shows you how to check the speed of your site and compress images

How to compress images using TinyPNG Compression tool


This one shows how to optimize images

How to Optimize Images for WordPress

Optimized using ting PNG site from tutorials. Don't let the cuteness fool you, he is a nut. I have not done this for my site yet but I didn't think the images would be that large because they are taken with a phone camera.

SEO:

I want to build my site to rank with SEO instead of promoting through social media because of all the algorithms changes that happens in social media, so I have been trying to learn as much as I can about SEO. I signed up for a SEO 5 day boot camp, it was a free email course and I am going to work my way through the SEO training here. I watched the SEO a blog post training.

Let’s SEO a Blog Post LIVE!

I also continued to listen to podcasts while I can at work, I need to work on using the things I learn through those shows a little more, I can not think of a single thing I learned this week from them.... The problem might be that by the time I get home I forget a lot of the information. So I decided to be a little more deliberate in what I listen to and downloaded some shows about SEO, keep my learning the same at home and what I can listen to at work.

Thanks for reading my update!

Have a great week!

Hi Anita,
Way to go! Keep up the good work! Those are the areas I am working on also. The SEO Live training by Jay was great!
Good luck!

Good afternoon my friend, I do understand your strategy, however why not use it all use everything to put your brand out there, that's what's going to really make you. May you have prosperity in all that you do.

Maybe I said that wrong, I will promote the site with social media especially in the beginning since I know it takes longer to see results with SEO, I just don’t want my traffic to depend on Pinterest or something else.
