interGen Standard Performance Tools
Below you can find a list of all the standard performance tools that we include on all our clients websites. With each new client, we do a performance analysis to make sure that your site is secure and fast - two metrics that matter to both your users and the search engines. We also make sure that you have access to an analytics dashboard that provides you measurable data about when, where, and how users are finding your website.
In 2018, Google announced algorithm updates that place far more emphasis on page speed and loading response times than ever before. In addition, 53% of users will leave a website that takes longer than 3 seconds to load. We enable gzip compression on all our clients' websites to save bandwidth and speed up your site.
What is GZIP Compression?
Favicons are quite possibly the smallest part of your site, but it's attention to detail that makes a site stand out.
We generate favicons for our client's websites based on the simplest version or element of their logo. If you do not have a logo (or your logo is too complex to work as a favicon), we generate one using the branding information we have about your site.
An SSL certificate is no longer a luxury for your website - it's a necessity!
We install (and automatically renew) SSL certificates on all our client's websites. We also have configured your site to "force SSL," making sure that your website loads securely every time it loads.
What is Google Analytics?
Ticking the "I'm not a robot" checkbox is a thing of the past for your website. We have upgraded all our sites to use Google's Invisible reCAPTCHA service, which is able to differentiate humans from bots without additional input from the website user.
reCAPTCHA is a free service that protects your website from spam and abuse. reCAPTCHA uses an advanced risk analysis engine and adaptive CAPTCHAs to keep automated software from engaging in abusive activities on your site. It does this while letting your valid users pass through with ease.
