We took a breath to update our own site after a busy first half of 2018 and specifically to reflect on the recent and favorable clutch.co announcements. The updated site includes a lot more portfolio items and a new services page using a fun flip technique from Dave Walsh's Blog. Once we got the content updated, we spent considerable time working on getting a high GTMetrix score and are happy to have a rating consistently over 90 on both PageSpeed and YSlow. That was a lot of fiddly work with mod page speed and cloudflare and server tuning.

Tip: Added a cron job to touch the pagespeed file every morning as it was starting to randomly drop images.

Our strategy with the site has been to do this ourselves and to demonstrate the quality level of work that we strive to achieve on all our sites. We are continuing to look at additional tools to analyze this new site and improve it from SEO, performance and industry standards perspectives
