speed optimisation questions
We’re strong advocates of educating our clients on all aspects of digital marketing. When it comes to WordPress speed up services, this is no different. Take a look at some of the most commonly asked WordPress speed optimisation questions.
Yes, plugins do slow down your WordPress website design. Each plugin creates new lines of code that are added to your WordPress pages and subsequently increase your pages loading time. While all plugins do slow down your website, some are more vicious than others. In fact, there are some plugins that will cause absolutely minimal impact on your page load times.
A good course of action is to test your website both before and after installing a new plugin to assess any detrimental effects this has had on your page load speed. In addition to this, it is always recommended to pay for a website developer to build functionality for you rather than using a plugin to band-aid something because you couldn’t wait a few weeks for something to be developed. Each time you do this, you are feeding your WordPress website with unhealthy goodies.
Out of the box, WordPress is an extremely lightweight content management system. However, just like watching what you eat, you need to be careful what you feed WordPress with as the platform is not self-healing.
There are many factors to consider when assessing what is slowing down your WordPress website. However, the biggest culprits are typically your website hosting server, excess plugins, redundant theme code and a pre-built WordPress theme that is absolutely littered with junk.
Regardless of how slow your WordPress website has become, our WordPress page speed optimisation services will ensure that no stone is left unturned.
Truthfully, there is no such thing as the ‘best’ speed test website. Each WordPress speed testing website will give you a varied set of results and recommendations. This can become confusing for both you and your internal website developers.
However, as with most things digital, your best course of action is to test a couple of websites and generate an average score. To start, we would recommend you try GTMetrix and also Google Page Speed Insights to give you an idea of overall speed alongside quick recommendations to improve your pages load time. Remember, each of these tools will only assess a single URL at a time and therefore it is important to check multiple URLs.
Yes, absolutely. When you consider that WordPress speed up services are typically a single fixed cost that will last you at least a year (depending on how drastic you change your website), the return on investment is phenomenal.
As a simple analogy, let’s assume that you operate an eCommerce store and your conversion rate sits around 2% with your revenue approximately $5,000 per month as an average. By engaging with WordPress speed optimisation services, you can expect to see conversion rate improvements anywhere in the region from 0.5% to 2%. That would increase your revenue by $2,500 per month as a bare minimum.
Conversion rate optimisation is a vital step with digital marketing and improving the speed of your WordPress website is a great place to begin.
