NEW: +ALLMAX Nutrition Aminocore Review

By +Will Kennard 

If you’re looking for the perfect BCAA with massive dosing, Aminocore is sure to fill the spot. It’s ideal intra-workout, but expect to shell out some cash if you’re a UK lifter.

So I'm auditing a bunch of clients at the moment, and they are all getting pretty rubbish scores on Goog page speed and Yslow. Seems the same recommendations every time - eliminate render blocking resources, use inline CSS etc. 

I honestly don't remember the last time when I checked a site and it had a good score, or didn't have these recommendations.

But with the amount of tools agencies use - tag manager, heatmapping etc etc, there's undoubtedly going to be a bunch of different JS requests that are quite frankly essential.

Do many of you concentrate on pagespeed? And how do you get round these problems? It's an area I've neglected and I need to tackle it.

Hello all, just a quick one;

I'm thinking about implementing AMP on a clients website for one section which is a large collection of recipes. Going to include the amp stuff in a subdirectory under their current one. So -

Has anyone implemented AMP and seen any success? I.e increased engagement, lower BR, increased mobile rankings.

Also if you have implemented AMP are there any technical issues I should look out for? Perhaps something easily overlooked?

Sitemaps & SEO:

Has anyone had good results from changing priorities/changefreq in sitemaps? I have a client with a dreadful site structure (company has such tight controls I absolutely will never be able to edit it) especially in terms of URL depths, and am wondering if it's worth me spending time updating priority levels and whether this will have any worth.

Anyone got experience with this?

Hi All, I'm about to help a client with a transfer over to HTTPS, and I've made the following checklist to hopefully minimise ranking loss. Some of it is from my brain and some is research, so I'd really appreciate if you could let me know if you think I've missed anything off, or if there's something on there that's not essential.

I will also appreciate discussion on whether this is a good idea or not, although from my end that's a little out of my hands - client has made up their mind and are switching over! FYI the site is a publisher and has over 700k indexed results.

cheers :)

* Update the links in templates (menu structure, footer etc) with the new HTTPS url versions
* Redirect all HTTP requests using 301 to the equivalent HTTPS resource. Generally this can be done using one command
* Current redirects in Htaccess will need to be redirected to their new HTTPS equivalent to avoid 'redirect chains'
* Do you serve any content from CDNs or from external ad platforms that don't use HTTPS? See if they have HTTPS versions and use those
* Are there any tools which use JS tracking code on your website that sends requests that aren't HTTPS? They should have secure versions
* Are there canonical tags on your website? If so, they will need to be updated with the new HTTPS URLs
* Images can often bring up HTTPS errors, try to use relative path names
