    Jane should get Automattic to invest in a tripod :) There’s useful updates in this which should be added to your WP SEO guide – that doesn’t even mention W3 Total cache.

    You should ad the link to slide presentation in your post.

    Cool presentation. Will use some of the tips on my blogs.

    Thanks for sharing Joost!

    Good presentation style Joost, I liked the whole vid. Some more clarification on Total Cache would be useful, I’ve recently switched to Quick Cache and noticed some good improvement from that, but I have no idea how it compares to Total Cache (or technically, why it’s better?)

    Coincidence you mentioning event handlers on the comment submit for a redirect, I was just playing around with JQuery today on this very thing, not very successfully though, it has to be said…

      Just try W3 Total Cache and you’ll see it :)

      About jQuery is the most powerfull-easy to use JavaScript library. You can find plugins for almost everything :P

    Great stuff and great presentation. Only two things that weren’t clear, either because it was detailed on the slides or I just didn’t understand was the Automatic table repairing and disable paging on comments. I guess I could Google it, but maybe other people would benefit from knowing too.

    How about a transcript, Joost–for those of us with painfully slow internet?

      Yeah might be a good idea, but I’d have to pay someone to get that done :)

        Ah, but it’d be worth it for the SEO benefit, surely? ;)

          Of course mate, of course :)

    I agree that communication is still important!

    Thanks for posting!

    You talked about the WP’s less than stellar search functionality.

    What’s your opinion on this plugin?

    Looks promising.

    • Joost de ValkBy Joost de Valk on 24 August, 2010

      It’s good but it doesn’t cut it. Sadly, good search functionality would probably require just as much code as all of WordPress has right now…

    Hey Joost, thanks! Do you no follow/no index the pages that you redirect from comments and events, etc?

    Nice presentation. However, I’m just commenting to check if I get redirected to a Thank You Page :).

    And just no I noticed a small bug in your comment form, see:
