WordPress Speed Optimisation

Retain visitors, increase usability and generate more sales with a faster website.

If your WordPress website is slow so then you are losing visitors, sales and search engine rankings. I specialise in making WordPress lightning fast. It doesn't matter whether you're a large corporation or a local business, my WordPress speed optimisation service is guaranteed to speed up your website.


Is Speed Important?

Absolutely. Slow websites frustrate users and they will leave without taking action if your site takes longer than a few seconds to load. Google uses speed as a ranking factor so fast websites attract more visitors from search engines, they also promote good user experience and lead to significantly higher conversion rates.

Making your website load faster is one of the best things you can do to improve it's overall performance. The average user has little patience for a page that takes too long to load, and justifiably so.

  • 40% of users abandon a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load
  • 47% of consumers expect a web page to load in 2 seconds or less
  • 79% of shoppers who are dissatisfied with website performance are less likely to buy from the same site again
  • A 1 second delay in page response can result in a 7% reduction in conversions

How I Make Websites Insanely Fast

No two sites are ever built the same, that's why I take a truly tailored approach to every project I undertake to ensure your site loads as fast as it possibly can. Here you will find an overview of the work included in my service. Additional optimisation techniques are used and I have just listed the key ones below.

Performance Benchmarking

1

I'll run the core pages of your website through multiple speed benchmarking tools in order to build up a true picture of its performance.

File Optimisation

2

Minification reduces the weight of each file and allows for a faster reading by browsers and search engines.

Concatenation combines CSS and JavaScript files. This mechanism reduces the number of HTTP requests and improves your loading time.

Page & Browser Caching

3

Caching creates an ultra-fast load time. With browser caching, static contents (JS, CSS, images) are stored in the browser. When a visitor goes to another page on your website, your static content does not need to be loaded again.

Theme & Plugin Optimisation

4

WordPress themes and plugins don't come fully optimised and are often bloated. I look through all of your files and optimse any inefficient code I find.

GZIP Compression

5

GZIP compresses your webpages and style sheets before sending them over to the browser. This drastically reduces transfer time since the files are much smaller.

Content Delivery Network (CDN)

6

This distributes your content around the world so it’s closer to your visitors (speeding up your site).

Database Optimisation

7

I extensively clean up and optimise your WordPress database. Automatic monthly database optimisations will be scheduled to ensure your database continues to run smoothly.

Image Compression & Lazy Load

8

Images will be compressed so they are downloaded faster and take up less space on your server.

Lazy Load ensures only visible images on a page are loaded, they appear as the user scrolls down the page.

Regular Backups

9

If you don’t have an existing backup solution in place, I’ll install and configure recurring automatic backups to the cloud for your peace of mind.

On-going Maintenance & Support

10

Every three months for the next year I will check back in with you to make sure your site is still loading quickly. I will also take this opportunity to update any scripts used in the optimisation process to ensure they continue to run smoothly in the future.

Luke approached me with his service offer a few weeks ago, namely to help optimise my wordpress site at Your Sydney Guide - I am very glad that I agreed to use his services. Luke is an honest and dedicated professional who works hard to get great results. His communication throughout the process has been fast and clear and I would have no hesitation in recommending him. I have now also asked him to do some design work on my site because I was so impressed with his service.
