Phenomenal post by Ian Lurie on taking care of the fundamentals of site optimization and web marketing basics.

Speed up: Get Google Page Speed. Run it on every page of your site. Until you have a 90+, you aren’t done. What? Your IT guy doesn’t think it’s worth doing? Make him wait an extra 10 seconds for everything for the next 2 days. He’ll change his mind, I promise.
