Hosting factor that can affect an SEO performance


Instructions Too many of us get so involved in the apparent SEO tactics when optimising websites that we forget to take into account the underlying factors that have a considerable impact on the ranking of the website. The web hosting service you use has a major impact on your SEO efforts, and there are some hosting issues that can actually have a significant (negative) effect on your SEO.


The role of web host in the performace of a website!

1. Slow Website Speed:

1. Slow Website Speed The website speed is a ranking factor made official by Google; unfortunately, many of us only work on improving the website design without focusing on choosing a fast hosting service. Then there are others who neglect all efforts all together and use redundant scripts, huge images, and third-party elements that load slowly . That being said, it is crucial to design your website without using too many scripts, such as animations, webfonts , third-party widgets and the like. Beside this, you should also choose a fast hosting service to minimise website loading times. It would be a wise idea to prefer VPS hosting in comparison to shared hosting.

2. Website Downtimes :

2. Website Downtimes Is there something worse than a site that loads at a snail’s pace? Yes there is. It’s a site that doesn’t load at all. Website downtimes are almost always related to some issues with the web host. It could be due to the bandwidth limit being exceeded, or the hosting service’s servers going out of order . Not only does this give a bad impression to your audience, but it also severely affects your search engine rankings. If the downtime continues for a few days, Google removes the website from its index.

3. Database Connection Failures :

3. Database Connection Failures ‘Internal Server Error’ is yet another type of error message that can be displayed to your visitors. It can carry a number of meanings; however, as far as WordPress sites are considered, it just means that the database cannot be accessed. In some cases, the error message is more self-explanatory and displays a message ‘Database Connection Failed ’. This results when a database is being accessed by too many users at the same time. For instance, it may be that a video or an article has gone viral on social media and more people are now interested to read or watch it on your website . A tool is available for WordPress that can be used to cache popular postings on your site so that a connection to the database is no longer necessary. This tool is called WP Super Cache.  This, however, is just a temporary fix – eventually, you will have to upgrade your hosting to a dedicated server or consider going for reliable Linux virtual server hosting.

4. Using Shared Hosting Services with Spammers:

4. Using Shared Hosting Services with Spammers This is relatively rare, yet a possible factor that can have a negative impact on your website’s online presence. When utilisng shared hosting services, you share the web space with various other websites. The other individuals can pose harm to your website. Therefore, it is advised that you avoid shared hosting services with spammy websites . You can check who resides with you on a particular server by entering your URL in the  Reverse IP Domain Check .

Incorrect TLD:

Incorrect TLD It is a habit for people to assume that every website address has a .com TLD. This is why you should be extremely cautious when naming your domain. You will find that most of the short, memorable .com domains have already been taken . Recently, there has been a significant push to make .co (Colombian top-level domain) an alternate to .com domains. Unfortunately, this effort has been unreasonable. This is because many people still assume (as mentioned before) that your domain is and not!
