Fast Page Loading Themes Blogs

I have noticed that a slower Page Load affects the Blog Traffic.

If the page of your Blog site is slow, this you can find out by yourself or for details of your page loading time against standard Page Loading time you may check with Quantcast,Woorank ,Alexa or some good Web Analyzing Tools, one of the main reasons is that the Page has too many elements.

One reason is that one uses large images and Videos.

Blog Themes
A WordPress Theme

I am aware that Images and Videos make the posts attractive  and lends crdence to your posts, it is advisable to use medium size images and not to load too many Large images and Videos,.

Ensure that your Home Page Posts do not contain more than 15 % Videos/images %.

I shall be posting on this subject.

In common man’s language the page has many, sometimes unnecessary  elements that make the page load slower.

Many of us, including me, try to include as many Free Widgets as possible in our Home Page.

It could be Traffic Monitors where it provides Visitor Information.Internet defense League, Indiblogger,Blog trophies,Clock and the like.

I have used almost all of them under the mistaken impression it enhances my sites aesthetics and the information provided by these widgets are useful for the reader.

Traffic to blog posts, I have noticed, is because of Content.

What we write, and its usefulness to the reader drives traffic.

And authenticity with sources for the information.

Anything more than this distracts the reader.

People browse, in general,for fast and relevant  information

There are exceptions where people want to pass time.

For this they have a lot of sites including social networking sites like Facebook,Myspace,Tumblr, thought he last one accommodates serious stuff as well.

One has to choose a Theme which has minimum elements  technically yet loads faster.

The Color schemes may have a role in this.

So choose a Theme which has minimum elements and make sure it is attractive.

Check if it loads fast .

For an absolute idiot like me trial and error method is the best.

Try and fix it.

I used tried DePo masthead Theme of WordPress(Free Theme) for a long time.

it was doing quite well.

Suddenly I changed to some colorful Themes,on being told by mu son that my Theme was bland and unattractive.

I have used more than Five themes.

I was content that my blog was looking grand. it did look.

But I have received comments from my readers that colors distract them from reading th content and some colors are irritating (the last point is subjective ,of course)

Surprisingly most laudatory comments were received for the simple DePo masthead Theme, which you are reading now,stating that it is easy to read and the Page . especially the Home Page loads very fast.

Most importantly I have seen an increase of about 25% in Home Page Views, though content wise there has been no shift in my Blog.

Why do not some of you try similar simple themes?

* I am not a Technical man and my suggestions need not be correct.

If some one has more relevant information, they may post either in the comments column, send an email or if it is a detailed one send in their post for publication.

Four Years In WordPress 1.3 Millions

This blog has completed four years in WordPress.

Though I had an idea that I would be completing four years, I did not think of it much as I was not really bothered about writing about it.

However I received a notification from WordPress that this milestone(?) may be blogged as the blog has some interesting features.

Following are the salient points.

Fourth Anniversary in WordPress.
Fourth Anniversary in WordPress.

Number of Followers 1447.

Likes                                 1337.

Categories                         117.

Tags                                16.683(Did I tag that much?)

Posts                                5748

Hits                                 13,43,820

Comments                          3450

Maximum Hits               29803

recorded in a day

Average Hit/day                1832

This is the statistical part of it.

What is more important to me is that I came across very good posts in my search for writing;some of them are found not on the first twenty results of Google search, but are very good in terms of content.

This reaffirms my belief that good articles need not be restricted to the first page results alone.

Probably, these people are also like me, want to share information yet do not know(as I do) the nuances of getting a place in the first Page search results.

Many of  my posts do find a place in the first results though.

Good content is always appreciated, more importantly useful.

This I have learnt from the feedback for my posts.

People do write to me to elaborate on a particular subject, which I have blogged about :and in many a case suggest topics.

This is the part I enjoy the most.

I do get criticisms ;fortunately most of them are creative, guiding me towards clarity and research.

Now most of my posts are on the basis of what the readers want and about what I am confident of writing.

I do research.

More than the readers I am happy I can acquire information.

I had an initial perception that writing about a popular topic shall drive traffic to your site.

Now I find that content drives.

Yet writing on popular topics gets you the initial readers and on their recommendations you get established.

Then one can write to engage the readers by writing what they want and about what one is confident about.

I have received queries from some bloggers that they have a personal blog and in their opinion they are not getting the Hits as they should, in their opinion.

My answer is that if your content is useful and interesting, Hits will come, though it might take some time. none can say how long.

Some of posts dating back to 2009 are Hits now.

Thank God, I did not delete them;on the contrary, I update them frequently.

Updating a Post is important.

Another reason why some personal blogs do not Get Hits is the fact that people are not interested in your woes and happiness, unless it is dramatic.

Expression of personal emotions alone will not guarantee you Hits or readers.

It is the general message that others can learn from such instances, with adequate proof or sources will interest the readers.

As usual I have not planned for this post and I have written what has come to my mind off the cuff.

I shall update as and when I get ideas.

And Thank You,



Make Your Blog Easy To Read For Search Engines



Sometimes one has to hunt down for good articles in the Internet, as in Google Search,Bing.

The content may be excellent authentic, yet it does not appear with out very specific search.

While content, post headings,Categories, tags are important, one might as well understand howt he search engines like ,Bing, Google read and reach your site.

As the volume of internet material is very huge, people are not  used.

Instead,Search Engines use bots*

These are the tools that  locate your site.

What do they do?

1.The bot will first look into your file names.

The file must be bot  friendly.

This is for people who write on HTML format.

Check with qualified people on this subject for more.

If you are writing on WordPress or blog spot, they will take care.

2.Once this is over, the bot moves onto Meta descriptions.

This is nothing but a Note, preferably in short words,about what the site contain/ is about..

It is recommended that the Meta descriptions do not exceed 60 characters.

However the search engines have recently sopped this step as there was Spamming.

However it is better to have neat and short description of what you plan to say in your site.

3.the bots move to the actual content that is everything that you find between section in your webpage, just be aware that if you are using any frames, tables in your content area then bots might not crawl through them and bots have lower capacity to crawl through javascript and flash over HTML so its better to have a webpage that is designed with HTML and other programs over flash and javascript.

4.The bot , then checks for duplicate content.

If your contents are duplicate to some other contents on the web then there is a chance that your rankings for that particular page will be low or it will be included in the supplementary index.


Crawling is the process by which Googlebot discovers new and updated pages to be added to the Google index.

We use a huge set of computers to fetch (or “crawl”) billions of pages on the web. The program that does the fetching is called Googlebot (also known as a robot, bot, or spider). Googlebot uses an algorithmic process: computer programs determine which sites to crawl, how often, and how many pages to fetch from each site.

Google’s crawl process begins with a list of web page URLs, generated from previous crawl processes, and augmented with Sitemap data provided by webmasters. As Googlebot visits each of these websites it detects links on each page and adds them to its list of pages to crawl. New sites, changes to existing sites, and dead links are noted and used to update the Google index.

Google doesn’t accept payment to crawl a site more frequently, and we keep the search side of our business separate from our revenue-generating AdWords service.


Googlebot processes each of the pages it crawls in order to compile a massive index of all the words it sees and their location on each page. In addition, we process information included in key content tags and attributes, such as Title tags and ALT attributes. Googlebot can process many, but not all, content types. For example, we cannot process the content of some rich media files or dynamic pages.

Serving results




Internet bots, also known as web robotsWWW robots or simply bots, are software applications that run automated tasks over the Internet. Typically, bots perform tasks that are both simple and structurally repetitive, at a much higher rate than would be possible for a human alone. The largest use of bots is in web spidering, in which an automated script fetches, analyses and files information from web servers at many times the speed of a human. Each server can have a file called robots.txt, containing rules for the spidering of that server that the bot is supposed to obey or be removed.

In addition to their uses outlined above, bots may also be implemented where a response speed faster than that of humans is required (e.g., gaming bots and auction-site robots) or less commonly in situations where the emulation of human activity is required, for example chat bots.

Bots are also being used as organization and content access applications for media delivery. Webot.com is one recent example of utilizing bots to deliver personal media across the web from multiple sources. In this case the bots track content updates on host computers and deliver live streaming access to a browser based logged in user.(wiki)

Beware Of Fraudulent Blogs

It is shocking that some one has blogged containing  the image of a Child supposedly suffering form Cancer, while it was not.

Blogs on Reilly
Fraudulent Blog.

Such posts .especially on a Subject on Health that too on Cancer involving a child, is sickening.

Is it because of ‘Hits”

If your writing does not provide information, at least desist from posting incorrect and sensational posts just to attract attention.

Unfortunately many take the information from the Internet seriously with out cross checking.

I tell my children not to Google for serious subjects and be guided by the First ten or twenty results in Google Search.

They might have appeared, not because of the authenticity or correctness of the information but because of tagging and keywords.

However much the Machines try, they can not avoid this fraudulent writing from appearing in top results.

My suggestion is not to find a cure for illnesses  from the Internet, but check with your Physician.

if you are forced to search,check the Trustworthiness of the site with WOT. cross check with Alexa,compare with other results from the search one each from the first three pages of the Search results.


For about 10 months, a person claiming to be a mom named Casey Bowman kept a blog called “Remembering Reilly” documenting her son’s battle with leukemia. The dark and detailed posts articulated painful milestones after Reilly’s passing — the moment she had to tell her older son, Langston, the family’s first Thanksgiving without Reilly, and even her own struggle with packing up Reilly’s things.

The boy’s cancer wasn’t the only tragedy that Bowman wrote about. She claimed to have lost another baby to SIDS, and wrote vividly about the miscarriage she had following Reilly’s diagnosis.

Not long after “Remembering Reilly” appeared, a network of other sites popped up that were somehow related to the boy, Gilliam said. There was another blog that seemed to have been written by Bowman while her son was alive, and an updated Facebook page in Reilly’s honor. A “friend” of Reilly’s, a little boy named Noah, also had his own tribute blog. And finally, there was a five-minute YouTube video — a montage made up of several pictures of Reilly (really Jack) with inspirational messages laid on top.

Every single one of these pieces was created by the person behind the hoax.

According to the Columbia Daily Herald, Bowman never asked for donations on Facebook, but posted images of shirts that were supposedly available for purchase as tribute to both boys.

Hoax Busters

According to The Tennessean, Shelly Jackson, a member of the Warrior Eli Hoax Group — a blog that aims to expose Internet hoaxes — came across “Remembering Reilly” because she had a Google alert set for “chronic myelogenous leukemia,” a diagnosis that her own son shares with Reilly. She realized that the details of Reilly’s diagnosis seemed off, so she looked into the story further. Using a reverse Google image search, Jackson found Sarah Gilliam’s blog, with dozens of matching photos. In an email to Gilliam that she sent to HuffPost, Jackson wrote:

One of my most recent cases involves someone using photos that I believe are of your son Jack claiming he was a leukemia patient named Reilly Bowman. This is particularly close to home for me because the blog was for a child with the same type of leukemia my son has, and I thought a child had died from it when I initially read the blog for “Reilly.”

Gilliam then posted a screenshot of the blog to her Instagram and Facebook accounts asking friends for help, she said. Her husband contacted WordPress, which hosted the blogs, and asked for them to be removed. By that night, all traces of “Remembering Reilly” were gone. The Huffington Post has obtained images from the defunct blog, which are available below.

Who Is Casey Bowman?

Taryn Harper Wright who updates the Warrior Eli blog writes that that the person behind “Remembering Reilly” is a 17-year-old girl whose name has not been released. She started the hoax after hearing Taylor Swift’s song “Ronan,” a tribute to a little boynamed Ronan Thompson who died of cancer. During the teen’s run as Casey Bowman, she even contacted another mom who had lost her son to cancer and the two became Internet friends, bonded by their similar stories.
