Ways We
Optimize

๐Ÿ“ท Optimize Images

We use lossless compression to optimize all your images without sacrificing quality. We’ll also auto-compress any images you upload in the future.

โŒ› Render-blocking Resources

We move JavaScript/CSS files, Font Awesome and Google Fonts code where they won’t affect the loading time of visual elements for your visitors.

๐Ÿ”ฝ Minify Javascript and CSS

We concentrate all scripts and styles, minify and compress them, add expiring headers, cache your website and move styles to the page head and scripts to the footer.

๐Ÿงณ Leverage Browser Caching

We set up a regularly-updated saved version of your website. When people visit your site, they’re showed a faster-loading cached version instead of having to load the entire website.

๐ŸŽ›๏ธ Enable Compression

We enable Gzip compression from your server or from where your assets are being delivered. This means lower loading times and an overall faster website.

๐Ÿ—‘๏ธ Remove Query Strings

URLs with a โ€œ?โ€ are not cached by certain proxy caching servers or CDNS. This could mean a missed opportunity for increased speeds, so we optimize them.

๐Ÿ“‰ Review Server Response Time

Slow websites can often stem from living on an inadequate server. We will monitor your hosting provider’s resources and recommend changes if needed.

๐Ÿค Combine Requests

We reduce the amount of requests your website calls out for by combine all your CSS and JS and moving what we can to the footer, which can help lower load times.

๐Ÿ›€ Lazy Loading Images

Lazy loading for iframes and images across your site decreases load time and saves bandwidth. We make sure not to use external JS libraries to keep the call outs to a minimum.

โžก๏ธ Inline Critical CSS

CSS is technically only supposed to be declared in the header, so we inline the most important CSS and load what’s not absolutely necessary after it has rendered the page.

Results

Here’s where one of our customers started. Ouch.

So we made some changes and got them back on track. Boom!

A slow website has been proven to cause higher bounce rates of visitors leaving your site and poor user experience. Search engines, like Google, also monitor your site’s speed and can penalize your site for having slow load times, thus hurting your rankings in searches.

Partner with us, your team of WordPress experts, to get your site optimized for speed for a better user experience and an improved Google Core Web Vitals score.

Frequently Asked Speed Questions

Common Q's we get about WordPress Speed Optimization services

Speed
FAQs

Through hours of manual optimization and premium plugins offered for free under our care plans, we achieve sites fast enough to have a significant positive impact on the websites we manage.

During onboarding, our team does a full audit of your website and hosting environment. This allows us to create and execute a unique plan for your website to significantly lower loading time.

We also keep your website fast on an ongoing basis. Getting your website to load quickly is one thing, but keeping it loading fast over the long-term is a real game-changer.

We also partner with premium plugins WP Rocket and WP Smush Pro to give you free access to both plugins under your care plan. This bring premium caching and image compression to your websites.

While our goal is always to achieve loading times of under 1 second, we never make any blanket promises when it comes to loading times of the websites we manage. Anybody who makes promises like this is simply trying to sell you on their services and get you to swipe your credit card sooner rather than later.

This being said, the majority of the websites we manage load in under 2 seconds, which is the recommended loading time to hit according to Google.

Every website is different, and depending on certain aspects of the website, it may be impossible to achieve loading time under 2 seconds! For example, if your website is on shared hosting (alongside 20,000 other websites) and has 20 Google Ads serving external content, chances are your website will be slow.ย 

But if you take our speed engineers’ advice, ensure your website is on appropriate hosting and do a great job balancing marketing & growth needs with minimalist speed optimization techniques, achieving loading times under 2 seconds should be no problem.

We sure can! We partner with multiple hosting providers who we’ve worked with closely over the years.

We manage multiple websites with each of our preferred hosting providers so we can vouch for their hosting quality, customer support and focus on speed.

Most importantly, all our preferred hosts provide free migrations for signing up with them.ย 

Our team will be happy to recommend the hosting provider who we think will best fit your websites’ specific needs (including wanting the site to load faster). Once you sign up with your new hosting provider, we’ll work with them and you to oversee your migration. Their migration team will execute the migration but our team will ensure everything moves over smoothly with no downtime.

Once the migration is complete, we’ll take over management of your hosting environment for optimization to make sure your website is maximizing it’s new, fast server!

We only provide speed optimization services for people who want to make their website faster and keep it that way over the long-term.

One-time speed optimization may help your website load faster now, but as your site continues to change over the following weeks and months, the site will slow down again unless someone is continually optimizing the site for speed.

We partner with folks to manage their website speed not just for today and tomorrow, but for the forceable future.ย 

While we don’t recommend purchasing one-time speed optimization, if you do decide to go with this option, we’d recommend downloading our speed optimization eBook and working with someone (maybe a freelancer) to do everything we do to speed up websites.
