With all these growing complaints on slow web pages regardless of whether manual methods have been used to shorten a page’s loading time, one may wonder:
Is there any website builder taking the lead on addressing people’s need for speed?

“This piece will generate more traffic and/or subscribers than my other posts or emails, since it circulates ideas and encourages conversation.”
Well, that’s certainly true. No type of content can spark conversation, social shares and circulate ideas like a good roundup piece.
