Page Speeds Blast Off With WP Rocket Site Optimization

October 15, 2019

In our fast paced world, speed matters. It’s become so imperative to online commerce that, as of July 2018, Google has included page speed as a primary ranking factor in mobile search. This was the first time since 2010 that mobile search was given higher priority than desktop search for SERPs (search engine results pages). Of course, the update had, and continues to have, significant implications for website firms and agencies worldwide. Speed will always be a defining metric for success on the web, and that’s why this past summer we doubled down on our site optimization efforts beyond the traditional offerings of our premium hosting services.Read More

Keep Your Website Compliant With Our Progressive Privacy Policy Services

September 3, 2019

As technology and the web have matured, new legislation centering around data protection has begun rolling out by state governments that requires our attention. Website owners are required to take special precautions with their online terms. Having an up-to-date, bulletproof privacy policy is now a mandatory requirement that is easily overlooked when numerous other decisions involved in building a website appear to take priority (content, e-commerce, search engine optimization, etc). But with so many moving components, it has been a burden to keep a privacy policy updated with the regulations of the times. That is, until now.Read More

Using Google Analytics? Here’s why you are required to have a Privacy Policy

July 22, 2019

Most websites that have been built in the last few years have Google Analytics installed. Whenever any third party tool is used on a website, some digging should be done to see what your obligations are as those terms will determine whether you’ll be allowed to use the service long-term.

Migrating from Mediatemple to Digital Ocean with Runcloud

April 9, 2019

Here at Razorfrog we’re big fans of managed WordPress hosting with Kinsta and WPEngine. We wrote all about it here, and those opinions haven’t changed much over the years. However, a full-fledged managed account isn’t always what we need for very small WordPress sites, or static HTML/PHP sites. For those, we’ve had a shared hosting account with Mediatemple for 10+ years (long before they were purchased by GoDaddy).Read More
