SO make sure to hire someone with experience instead of learning the hard way!

VERSUS THE ONE THAT’S EASIER OUT OF THE BOX….

WP Super Cache

Once static pages are generated, those pages are displayed to visitors, using less server resources than dynamic webpages. Plugin allows your website to handle more simultaneous visitors and also typically loads much faster than without the caching plugin.

BENEFITS:

SEO Friendly Images is a WordPress SEO plugin which automatically updates all images with proper ALT and TITLE attributes for SEO purposes. If your images do not have ALT and TITLE already set, SEO Friendly Images will add them according the options you set. Additionally this makes the post W3C/xHTML valid as well.

ALT attribute is important part of search engine optimization. It describes your images to search engine and when a user searches for a certain image this is a key determining factor for a match.

TITLE attribute play lesser role but is important for visitors as this text will automatically appear in the tooltip when mouse is over the image.

Simple URLs

Simple URLs is a complete URL management system that allows you create, manage, and track outbound links from your site.

Simple URLs is a complete URL management system that allows you create, manage, and track outbound links from your site by using custom post types and 301 redirects.

It adds a new custom post type to your Admin menu, where you can create, edit, delete, and manage URLs. It stores click counts in the form of a custom field on that custom post type, so it scales really well.

And by avoiding page based redirects, which is the current trend in masking affiliate links, we avoid any issues with permalink conflicts, and therefore avoid any performance issues.
