Article Writer CMS for Auto to Auto

Auto to Auto is a small but effective Website that can easily out perform most CMS driven Websites.

Best page load time possible

Article Writer is unique in that instead of just pulling data from a database and slapping it into a template, this CMS actually creates static files from the composed content at the time the page is saved. This saves a tremendous amount of time when users try to access a webpage.

No robust CMS start-up lag

Because the files are written directly to the server hard drive, there is no time required to start up PHP or much, much worse, a robust CMS like WordPress. Word Press, for example, can take several seconds to retrieve a page. As one of the top 100 search position factors, Google wants the best user experience possible. Waiting 5 seconds for WordPress to boot is far from a good experience and may lead to user hitting the back button and choosing a competitor’s Website instead.

Light weight means even faster load times

The site architecture is designed to be as light weight as possible. There is a minimum of images with the exception of the slider. CSS is used to make the layout – table-less design = less code = faster load time.  No graphics in the layout – this also take more time as those images have to be loaded. Minimal design – the more bells and whistles, the more that will have to be downloaded and the more time it will take.

 Unique articles

Many businesses want to have their products and services listed as the priority of the Web design. This is fine however why would Google place your Website first when there is superior content available elsewhere? How about some unique and useful content to help users get what they are looking for? This is what the search engines want, not prices slapped all over every page, how useful is that?

You will notice that Auto to Auto contains a very simple articles section made up with that lighting fast content creator we talked about above. When a new article is posted, a link to it is created along with an update to the XML site map file. The site map gives the search engines another way of determining how pages on the website are tied together with links.

Article Writer CMS

Again, I used my rather boring black and white one page CMS. This system is very simple compared to many, but it is all that the owner needs to get things accomplished.

In the edit window, you have a set of predefined items like the H1 tag and URL name. Along with this, the meta description tag. It is pretty much useless for SEO but it is the first thing users will see when your website is returned in the search results. This is your chance to convince them to click the link that leads to your site. You can then add and many paragraphs and subheadings as you wish below. There is also a list order that determines which article appears where.
