Search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo have indicated site mobile usability and speed is ones of the signals used by its algorithm for rankings in mobile search results.
There’s nothing more exciting to us than reducing page load time from 5 seconds to under a second.
PageSpeed Insights: Making websites faster is in our DNA.
Page Caching The PHP and database content of your website is compressed to its HTML essence.
Creates an ultra-fast load time and lower server load.
Browser Caching With browser caching, static content (JS, CSS, images) are stored in the browser.
When a visitor goes to another page on your website, this static content won’t need to be re-loaded.
Image Optimization We run all your images through an advanced image optimization service.
The plugin then remains on your server and will optimize future images as they are uploaded.
Plugin Audit Plugin conflicts are common with WordPress, and we like to dig deep and see who’s not playing nice.
Database Optimization Over time databases can become bloated, storing transients and unneeded revisions of your posts.
We’ll clean it up, then set up a weekly optimization sweep.
Mobile Optimization Optimization will also take place for your website on mobile, and if you have a separate mobile theme, we’ll cache that separately.
GZIP Compression To optimize the rendering of web browsers and save bandwidth, we use gzip compression, expires headers, and tags.
Cache Preloading We simulate a visit to preload the cache, so it’s always fast for the next visitor.
If available, we will also preload the cache from your sitemap.
Advanced Desktop Speed Optimization On the more esoteric end of the scale, we deploy minification of CSS/JS files, DNS prefetching and JS deferment.
