Question

Is my content slowing down the speed of my page?

by jwhit16 / September 30, 2015 11:22 PM PDT

I have a page on my website dedicated to blog posts, instead of using an actual blog I just update content through text on the page. After updating the content frequently, I am afraid that it is slowing down the load speed of my page, which would negate the advantage of constantly having fresh content. I have a subdomain linked to my blogger account which I can update with those same posts, but I am wondering if updating content on a subdomain through blogger will have the same SEO benefits as updating content on one of the main pages of my site.

The page on my website is lyftdriverpromo.com/driving-tips/

Edit:

One link edited to change it to non-clickable.
2nd link deleted as it is not required.

Tested, OK

The normal way to check this is to test it yourself using different browsers, and/or different computers and ISP's.

Friends and relatives can test as well.

I removed the 2nd link. It is not needed.

Whether you add a page or a blog post
by Sovereign Forum moderator / October 12, 2015 10:05 PM PDT

neither should really be slowing down your website. Any CMS is inherently designed to perform optimally for at least that type of basic functionality, so as far as that's concerned, either method works. Pages are generally more for static content that changes little, whereas blogs are designed to be continuously added to. In terms of SEO, both can be effective. Ultimately, it's good content that will have the biggest impact on SEO, whether it's on a page or in a blog post.

It's not your content but something else slowing you down

It's not your content but something else slowing you down - There is something else causing loading issues Wink
