RyanEagle.com Homepage Updates

RyanEagle.com

It’s been quite a long time since I actually took some time to update my personal website, as a matter of fact the last time it was updated the homepage said I was 24 years old (I’m 26) . The reason? It doesn’t make me money – so what’s the point; if it doesn’t make dollars it doesn’t make cents. I finally decided to get off my butt and do some necessary updates that have been long overdue, I decided Is should take pride in my namesake. I ended up partnering up with three different sets of programmers to fix and develop various sections of my website. I’ll go through all the changes below:

Adjusted mobile compliant version. All social connection profile links are now fixed. Upgraded WordPress to latest version. Added various security and backup measures.

Mobile Friendly Blog & Homepage

Being the perfectionist that I am, I contracted out special development of a mobile-friendly RyanEagle.com Homepage and customized WPtouch for the mobile-friendly Ryan Eagle Blog. To say the least transferring to WordPress has been a breath of fresh air. I cannot believe I ran on that custom blog technology since 2004 for my website without ever upgrading!

I did some minor SEO tweaks on my blog, adjusting the <title> and the <meta> tags . I totally forgot to set these attributes when I first made my blog ages ago. Then again, I didn’t expect it to become as popular as it has. I’ve also added atestimonials page – thanks to everyone that wrote me great recommendations on LinkedIn! SEO Tweaks and Testimonials
