Did you know that Google loves a fast loading website?
In fact, Google now rewards fast websites with a higher search results page position.
Benefits of WordPress Speed Optimisation

Keeping visitors on your site, for longer
Improving site visitor return rates
Converting visitors into paying customers
Increasing your sales revenue
Conveying a more professional image
Making your visitors experience more enjoyable
How do I know if my WordPress site is slow?
The best way to analyse your WordPress website’s speed is to visit a GTmetrix.
We are in no way affiliated with GTmetrix. It is, however, a highly-respected website page speed analysis tool.
Using the button, below, access their site and enter your URL. It will actually show you where improvements can be made to your WordPress site. It’s free to use and you do not need to register.
We make sure your site’s images and resources are served from consistent URLs. For example, many poorly designed websites will often have some resources pulled from http://yoursite.com and http://www.yoursite.com URL variations. This inconsistency slows down your site speed.
Caching (pronounced cashing) offers one of the best WordPress speed improvements. Caching expedites load time for returning visitors, because many of the site’s files are stored locally on their browser. We implement browser caching via the .htaccess file on your server, rather than using a plugin.
WordPress has a plethora fantastic plugins available. Unfortunately though, some poorly-coded plugins can seriously harm your site’s speed. In addition, some leave a nasty footprint on your .htaccess file.
If you’re wanting to take your WordPress site speed to a whole new level, we can seriously improve its performance with a Content Delivery Network (CDN). We use CloudFlare’s CDN and can deploy your site across their secure and insanely fast network too.
A seriously bloated MySQL Database is a common culprit when it comes to WordPress speed performance problems. If you’re not optimising your WordPress database once a month, then the chances are yours will be slowing your site down. We’ll optimise your site’s MySQL database via your phpMyAdmin panel.
