We are pleased to introduce Michael Viller who will be presenting this months Meetup topic. We are in for a treat as Michael is presenting this same topic at WordCamp Brisbane.

Michael will be covering common mistakes that spark questions such as How do I speed up my website?, My images are slowing down my website, how do i fix that?, How do I SEO?, How do I get google to visit my website? and many many more.

But are these really questions that should be asked afterwards? Not having these things done at the time of creating your website can make it harder and more costly to do later on.

This talk will lightly cover the above topics, and focus on the questions that can be asked ahead of time to reduce the pain later on, such as how to choose quality hosting, themes and page builders, WordPress settings and image compression plugins, and implementing SEO the right way from the start.

Meet Michael
——————
Michael has been the “Mick” of many things over the past 36 years of his life however one thing that he’s always been passionate about is building websites, He started teaching himself to build websites back in ’99 with HTML, then moved to mambo, then was an avid Joomla user for over 10 years and a very anti-WordPress person up till a few years ago, but hasn’t touched Joomla since.
