  • Hi Do you know if having an instagram feed on your site – does it slow down the site because of the images? I don't think most people upload optimized images to instagram…. Thanks for the Video! Loved it.

  • When I first loaded this video.. I was like … this video has 10 seconds to keep my attention.. I was hooked in 5 seconds. Well done.

  • I love your videos. Thank you for sharing. I did the google test and my results are

    The requested URL is disallowed by robots.txt.

    What should I do next? I am new to the internet world:)

  • Hi Kori,  thank you so much for everything you teach!  I've watched several of your videos and really found them helpful.  I have a word press website and am using slider revolution to create my slider.  I cannot find a way to make the pictures (background) appear as if they were moving and also my first slide takes too long to appear once the page has been loaded.  Can you please help me?

  • Whats the best plugin for wordpress to be using for integrating instagram on your pages! Thank you Webtegrity! All the love <3

  • I tried to check my website with tip#1, but it says that "The requested URL is disallowed by robots.txt." What does that mean? (Have I put in some code that I don't know about?")

  • Hey these tips are really useful – I'm building my site myself with WP + a premium theme so I will use this as a checklist before I launch it. Speaking of site launches, I have a question that I'm struggling to find an answer to. It's kind of linked to your 'must-do' #8 about security and backups – before the site is live, do we still have to take the same precautions as we would with a live site? For instance, I've added the most important pages and some content so far to my website, but there are a few essential plugins I'd like to add. Would it be good practice to make a backup of the pages before I add the plugins, even though the site is not live yet? Or does it not really matter?
    Also, if I go crazy adding plugins, and it turns out that they're not compatible with the current version of WP, then I launch the site, could it "break" on the launch? I'm kind of terrified of clicking the launch site button!

  • How would I make several different landing pages? As far as I know I can only do that on my home page. Obviously I'm wrong. Please help! 🙂
