Regarding image optimization in WordPress there often are being mentioned various cloud services and their price and data saving are being compared. If you have a suitable hosting, use tools that are available right on the server for your image optimization. You don’t have to pay for any third-party services and there is no limit.
Recently I have been playing around with WordPress a lot and also have been trying to make the most of its basic options without the necessity to install third-part plug-ins. Of course, I use Google Analytics for traffic tracking, but I also needed a stupid incremental counter of post views. Using it I am then also able to create a list of the most read posts in a form of a widget.
Do you need to try out a plug-in, a visual theme or some other functionality but also not to shatter your own web? What about a free installation of WordPress with one click, available in seconds and erased automatically after two days?
The WordPress content management system in its basic form has – unlike Drupal, for example – no instruments for visitor monitoring, such as different access analyses, monitoring of links from which the visitors came, search analysis and the like. However, it is no problem to implement these functions using a quality module called StatPress Seolution.
