Dear Readers,

Can you believe it’s another new year? Here at WHSR, we get pretty excited about new beginnings. Our owner, Jerry Low, celebrates the Chinese New Year this week, which is another celebration of something new and fresh. We have a few new things to share as well. From new and improved tools for you to a complete redesign, you’re going to love it all.

WHSR’s Fifth Redesign

You might have noticed that WHSR has a new look. This is our fifth redesign since 2008. You’ll notice that we have a much more streamlined look now and everything is quite easy to find. Simply click on Resources to access all of our valuable content. On the resources page, you’ll find:

  • Best blogging and marketing tips

Everything is one convenient place and easy to access from any page of the website.

Our Uptime tracker is new and improved. If you haven’t tried this tool, it is a great way to check that your websites are always available for your visitors and that your hosting companies is delivering on their promises.

We have a new tool we’re introducing for 2017 as well. It is called Web Host Spy. Is there a site you’ve visited that seems to load really fast or perhaps is a competitor? You can easily discover who is hosting their website with our spy tool. Simply input the domain name of the site and we’ll return the results of who is hosting that site.

New Tips for 2017

In January, we also published a number of pieces that will help you improve your blog, teach you what others are doing right, and help you find the right hosting company.

We featured interviews with Scala Hosting and Blog2Social, both beneficial reads for anyone with a website or thinking about starting a website.

We also offered advice on everything from Jason Chow’s growing your blog readership to how to add Google AdSense to WordPress. Luana Spinetti reworked her piece on 10 Essential Rules for Effective LinkedIn Marketing with all the latest tips to get you through your 2017 promotions.

Lori Soard shared an in-depth guide to becoming an authority in your niche. Get advice from others who’ve already established their leadership in a specific niche.

January is a good time to revamp your blog and set out your strategy for the coming year. These tips and tools will give you a good start.
