WordPress Performance Optimization Tips & Tricks
Below are the core things that we profile for. We help you set this up when we do your WordPress performance optimization.
Loading content again every time you load a page takes time. By caching the pages they are loaded from memory which is dramatically faster for the end-user.
Plugins are excellent but too many of them, or poorly coded ones can slow your site down. We help you analyze them and clean up or replace bad ones.
Theme Code Optimization
There are usually lots that can be done with your theme, especially if you are using a purchased theme from somewhere. We review and optimize the code to run faster.
The slowest loading objects on the web are usually images. By optimizing them we can reduce the file size greatly without degrading the image quality.
By spreading out static files (images, stylesheets and scripts) across a distributed network of servers across the globe, users always access them from the location nearest them.
Your website most likely loads severals scripts and stylesheets. By combining these and minifying the code it takes less bytes, makes less requests and loads quicker.
