WordPress is the most widely used content management system on the Web. Many affiliates who are in the programs we manage for clients use WordPress as their content management system of choice. Working with these affiliates, we have come to learn, firsthand, the tools that have served them best. If you are an affiliate publisher using WordPress to power your website, there are three WordPress tools you should know about – each in its own right helping to maximize your affiliate revenue channel.
WP Engine for WordPress provides micro-fast hosting solutions for professional WordPress blogs. In fact, it’s the fastest and most robust hosting for WordPress-hosted sites available. Other hosting companies that claim to offer “WordPress Hosting”, do not come close to the architecture of WP Engine. If you are a publisher affiliate relying on optimized organic search traffic and high conversion rates, WP Engine is a must.
