Overview

247wallst.com is one of the reputed financial news publishing media. The articles from 247wallst are republished by many of the largest news sites and portals, including MSN MarketWatch, USAToday, AOL, and newspaper and broadcast sites across America. 247wallst.com is built on WordPress. The 247wallst team was looking for an expert and trusted WordPress agency to optimize the code and assist them to migrate to the WordPress VIP platform. The completion of migration in the short-timeline was a crucial part of the business.

Challenges

  • The performance of the website was very slow.
  • The website is very busy with over a hundred thousand articles and their team publishes around 30 articles daily. They needed to optimize the website for scalability and stability.
  • 247wallst.com has 100,000 daily uniques. Hence, it was crucial to migrating this website over to WordPress VIP infrastructure with zero-downtime.

Solutions

  • We scanned the code on the VIP Code Scanner tool. The tool suggested around a hundred issues in code and database. We started to fix those issues.
  • We performed manual code audits and fixed all the issues.
  • Cleaned and optimized plugins for the compatibility with VIP infrastructure.

Results

  • Overall migration and optimization were completed in two weeks.
  • The website is much more stable and faster.
  • The code and database design is lean and clean.

The website is publicly available and is working well. The project was very challenging, but Multidots was able to come up with a complete solution. The team managed the project well and was able to deliver the project quickly.
