WordPress has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world. There are about 75 million sites running on WordPress (about 20% of all sites on the web).
If your is one of them, then you can stand out or be one of the millions being ignored.
This Meetup covered 19 things that you need to know about to get your website to the next level. Basic functionality, how to keep it streamlined, what plug-ins are worth it and which ones will kill you, adding Google Analytics or Tag Manager code without yet another plug-in, how to increase visibility, using hooks and choosing a theme that makes sense.
