WHY IMPROVE WORDPRESS SPEED?
Even though we sometime mention “WordPress speed optimization” often, we are actually referring to ‘page speed’, or your WordPress page load time, which is the time it will take for a page to fully load and the content to be displayed.
A slow WordPress page speed will have a negative effect on how many pages search engines can crawl. A slow WordPress speed will result in having fewer pages indexed which will result in poor ranking.
The benefits of a fast WordPress site are as follow:
- A faster WordPress page will actually rank better in search engine result pages (SERPs)
- Improve your user experience
- Will have a better chance of converting your prospects into customers?
- Improve your page time to first byte (TTFB) – Note that will also require that you have a good hosting company
Plus, Google has stated that site speed (page speed) is one of many ranking signals that it added to its algorithm.

Got a slow WordPress site?
If while shopping online you found a website slow and clicked on the browser’s back button, then it is important that you know your readers or potential customers are no different than you and will take the same action you took and leave your site faster than they came in.
Is that what you want?
A slow WordPress will definitely annoy your targeted audience, including your existing customers so much that it will make push them to go back to wherever they came from and go to your competition instead.

HOW WE SPEED UP WORDPRESS SITES?
We’ve helped speed up many WordPress sites by performing the below processes.
In order to make your WordPress site achieve optimal speed, we need to better understand the inner layers of your site using BuzFind SEO audit and various speed testing tools to gauge your site speed and pinpoint the underlying causes of your slow WordPress. The speed test tools include but are not limited to:
- Pingdom page speed for gauging the load speed of every page
- GTmetrix to analyze your WordPress speed performance
- YSlow to find out why your page is slow based on Yahoo’s rules
Now that we have identified the problems affecting your WordPress speed such as:
- Plugins misconfiguration
- Unnecessary installed plugins
Your dedicated WordPress speed expert will share and discus our recommended techniques that need to be implemented in order to eliminate those speed bottlenecks with you.
Once you approve the recommended speed fixes (mentioning just a few below):
- WordPress database optimization and tweaking
- Image size compression
- Divorce your existing hosting (our experience and testing showed that 95% of slow websites were due to cheap hosting and poorly configured server hardware and software)
He/she will start the implementation of the fixes. Then, he/she will run another WordPress speed test and once complete, you’ll be able to see an improved WordPress performance and page load speed.
But there is one last step…
Implementation of CDN
The final step will be to implement a CDN — A CDN, or content delivery network are a group of geographically distributed servers (proxy computers) working together to distribute and deliver content faster.
For example, if your business offers a service or product worldwide, your website data center is somewhere in the US but your inquiring customers lives in Europe, then a server located closer to the customer will be in charge of delivering the requested content.
Even if your business only targets US customers only, we would still highly recommend the implementation of a CDN.

HOW FAST WILL YOUR WORDPRESS SITE BECOME?
We were able to improve the speed of many WordPress sites and reduce their page load time from 15 to less than 3 second, and sometimes even further depending on the quality of hosting company.
Important to know…
If you’ve implemented some third party plugins on your WordPress site that sometimes we might not be able to improve its speed because we’ll have no access to the source code of said plugin. If that is the case, then we’ll contact the plugin developer on your behalf and see what it can be done to improve the plugin speed.
However, once we have run our WordPress site speed test and implemented our techniques to speed up each page, you’ll see a speed improvement from 10 or more second, to 3 seconds, if not less.
Below is a screenshot based on this page GTmetrix Performance report. Please note that BuzFind is not a WordPress based website, however, your dedicated WordPress speed optimization professional will be able to achieve similar or better results depending on your hosting company and setup.
