Our summary Of The Tool:

When it comes to ranking on Google and other search engines, SEO is a huge factor. The higher the SEO score and health of a site, the more trusted it’s deemed to be and the higher it appears in search rankings. With so many factors, it’s a good idea to have a software or plug-in that can help and this is where SEOPressor comes in. 

Designed for WordPress sites, SEOPressor comes with an abundance of features designed to evaluate and improve a site’s SEO. The dashboard is broken down into several easy-to-read elements, including the site’s score and health, trends, warnings and errors. This makes it simple to make effective changes rather than guess how to improve. 

The five building blocks of SEOPressor include on-page analysis, SEO intelligence, semantic builder, crawler control and link management.

Tool #9 – WP Super Cache

Description From The Developer: WP Super Cache plugin generates static html files from your dynamic WordPress blog.

Our summary Of The Tool: 

Anyone who owns or operates a WordPress site knows how dynamic it can be. The problem with this is that it often results in slow-loading pages, which can increase customer bounce rates. The answer lies within WP Super Cache, a plug-in that speeds up loading times by creating static pages. 

WP Super Cache is easy to install and users can choose from three different ways to serve cached files: Expert, Simple or WP-Cache caching. Expert is the quickest way to load pages because it bypasses the PHP coding, which is helpful during periods of extreme traffic. Simple is the most commonly used setting and recommended by the developers because it’s easier to configure. WP-Cache caching is mostly used for those visitors that the site already knows, but it’s slightly slower than the other two options.
