It's not difficult to make a faster and less intrusive web. If you're running on WordPress, simply use fewer plugins. Your site loads faster with fewer scripts and third-party connections.
"There is a direct correlation between plugin count and poor performance. Each additional plugin knocks roughly 3.2 points off of Google PageSpeed. Around 1% of small business WordPress sites use 15+ plugins"
@x that's on the back end. i was talking about the front end and the perspective of visitors. nothing necessary for them.
My site is now without any cookies, analytics tracking, Google fonts, advertising banners, pop-ups and third-party requests. Pure content. Fast to load. Hosted on an environmentally friendly server too https://markosaric.com/
@GwenfarsGarden@sunbeam.city yeah, backup is simple with that one tick. for spam, you activate "Akismet" plugin which I will add to that guide. it's possible to move your Blogger content to WP and redirect your URL too - see https://markosaric.com/move-blogger-to-wordpress/
@GwenfarsGarden@sunbeam.city I use self-hosted WordPress.org. It's really not that difficult to set up. No tech know-how needed. See my instructions and let me know if something doesn't make sense: https://markosaric.com/install-wordpress/
@ranx good idea. i would expect the numbers to be even lower for open-source enthusiasts and/or privacy-conscious people!?
@da yeah i'm aware it's built on chromium but don't really know how it will affect them. adblocking is a big part of what they do so they must find a solution
