Here's how to boost your site's performance

A great website is never really finished. Even when you've crossed off every item on your list, there's always something else you can try to attract more visitors or sell more products. Here are three awesome tips — we hope they'll inspire you to revisit your own to-do list.

1. Understand your visitors

Jetpack's Site Stats is a great analytics tool to track how well your site is performing. But its most important function — and the one you need to know — is giving you a better idea of how your site can better serve visitors and give them what they want.

2. Use email marketing to increase engagement

You can always use more traffic — better yet, more loyal readers. It's no secret that most folks visiting your site already have an email address, so using email to build your relationship with visitors is an obvious next step.

3. Host resources elsewhere

Mobile devices play a huge role in content consumption, so speed is everything. According to Google, 53% of mobile users will abandon a site if it takes more than three seconds to load. To keep your site as fast as possible, it makes sense to host certain resources with other trusted providers — like Jetpack!
