Top priorities for website improvement

  • Sign up for a Twitter account and make sure it is linked to from your site, or if you already have one make sure it is public. (read more)
  • Enable GZIP compression on your web server or in your application. (read more)
  • Avoid use of file extensions wherever possible. File extensions appear at the end of web addresses, and have several negative effects. They make the address harder to remember or type (particularly for non-technical users), and can reveal the underlying technology of the website making it very slightly more vulnerable to hackers. They also tie the implementation of the website to a specific technology, which can make subsequent migration of URLs difficult. Consider URL rewriting as an effective and transparent means of creating appropriate URLs. (read more)
