Tips and Tricks for WordPress Performance Optimization

Below are some key issues to get a WordPress website to load quickly. We are glad to assist you with all of these (and more) when doing performance optimization of your WordPress website.

Caching

Loading content every time a page loads takes time. By caching pages, they are loaded from memory instead of fresh every time. This has a considerable effect for the end user.

Plugin Profiling

Plugins are wonderful but sometimes you can have too much of a good thing. Badly coded plugins too can slow down your website. We help you analyze, clean up and replace the bad ones.

Theme Code Optimization

Often there are a lot of things that can be improved in your theme. Especially if it is a common, purchased theme. We review and optimize the code to make it more efficient.

Image Optimization

Usually the slowest loading elements on websites are images. By optimizing them we can reduce their file size with no noticeable effects on image quality.

CDN

By distributing static files (images, stylesheets and scripts) on a network of servers around the world, visitors will always download the files from the server closest to them.

Minification

Your website is most likely loading several scripts and Stylesheets. By combining these and minifying the code fewer request or lesser sizes need to be made. Thus, your site loads quicker.
