Plugin

W3 Total Cache is a popular caching plugin for wordpress powered blogs. I have been using it after I quit using WP Super Cache wordpress plugin. I had been satisfied with its performance ever since. I have also tried CDN with it. Its good. Makes your wordpress blog run faster. Recently TechMynd was landed into adsense blacklist and i was checking few things and this problem caught my eye. Generally whenever you are using a wordpress plugin, you should give importance to its options detail. You better be careful about what plugin you are using and what type of changes it makes on your blog coding and source. If you are not careful enough then W3 Total Cache plugin can get you banned from Google Adsense. Here is how:

I will keep it simple and straight. What is CDN? CDN is content delivery network. You can make your website load 10 times faster using CDN. RackSpace, Amazon, MaxCDN and many other provide CDN. I will go with MaxCDN which I have used. You will have to purchase MaxCDN bandwidth package. That’s just bandwidth of 1000 GB in $34 for one year. Use it in one year or whenever you finish it up all by using it, buy more bandwidth. Space is separate. 10GB space is in $10 per month which can be used to upload your heavy files to and to serve those from CDN. Why CDN? Your blog or website will be slow when serving all the pages, JS files and CSS files and images. If you use CDN and configure your blog to serve files from CDN, they will use a temp subdomain for your website and serve certain files from that domain. This will significantly improve your website speed and raise page rank of your website pages (Google checks website pages speed to determine page ranks – this is one factor in determining PR). You don’t need space at MaxCDN unless you intend to move heavy files there e.g. pdf, rar, zip etc.

Its like purchase MaxCDN, add W3 Total Cache plugin and activate it. Get API, ID and the Temporary URL from MaxCDN and configure W3 Total Cache to use MaxCDN network and done. It looks all pain in the *** but its one timer. Set it and forget it. You blog/website will be amazingly faster than before.

The problem is configuring all these three together to make them work for you. Here is how.

Vladimir Prelovac is SEO expert and WordPress solution provider. I spent a whole day reading his blog about SEO tips and advice for WordPress. I have got to say that I am pretty much impressed. Every blogger, SEO, webmaster should read his blog. Its my recommendation. You will find huge stuff and great advice about how you can improve your current website in every aspect. I have observed another specific thing at Vladimir Prelovac’s site that whatever he posts; gets good page rank. He is not getting huge comments, Twitter, Digg and Facebook love as compared to mashable but still he has got good page ranks all over in his site even when the article is really small. Great job on original content. I have been using some of plugins by Vladimir e.g. ‘SEO Super Comments‘ which can increase your readership at considerable rate by utilizing your comments for SEO purpose resulting increase in traffic. I have noticed something with SEO Super Comments lately that it can give you trouble with the duplicated meta tags where it creates separate page for every single comment. The comment page gets the same meta information as it is for the post. I hope to get update about this great plugin on this one soon. Anyways! here is another great tool for bloggers, SEOs, webmasters and developers to improve their website overall performance in search engines. Its Firefox plugin by ‘Vladimir’ … named as SEO Doctor.
