TheAppWhisperer Site Optimisation

On Saturday (just gone), I spent considerable time ensuring is fully operational and optimised for all of our readers to view our content, with greater efficiency.

When you log into now, you will notice that the site is totally secure (I purchased an SSL certificate and installed it). If you sell from a website, it’s imperative that you have one of these, we do not sell directly from our website (and our online gallery already has an SSL certificate). This certificate offers additional levels of security, so if a customer is supplying confidential sales information, it’s protected. The reason I purchased this for is because many readers were disappointed to see the ‘not secure’ that Google levies to sites without one. Having now made the purchase, Google will also rank us even higher, so there’s plenty of good reason to justify this purchase.

In addition, I have redirected all our DNS servers back to our host site in California, US. They were previously directed to an advertising site and I wasn’t happy with their service. They were monopolising the content and placing ads over our well written and photographed content. More importantly, our readers were dissatisfied with this too. So, I’ve removed any trace of them, you’ll not see them again. Visit your favourite pages, posts and all future content, now without any sign of an ad.

The site loads at lightening speed (dependent obviously on your connection), there’s a lot of important new functionality added and this will continue to roll out as we strive on with our very encouraging plans.

Thank you for your patience.
