The New Year is a great time to evaluate your current digital assets. Today, we’re talking about website speed. If your site is slow, you’re losing views and hurting your search ranking.
If you’re ready to speed things up, check out these WordPress plugins for your site:
1. Render Faster: WP Fastest Cache: The more traffic your site gets, the more RAM and CPU it uses (AKA: it loads slower). WP Fastest Cache creates a static file for multiple users rather than rendering the same page repeatedly.
2. Big Image Files: WP Smush: That 2MB hero image ain’t gonna cut it anymore. If you’re looking for a simple way to compress your images and not lose quality, download WP Smush for free.
3. Decrease Pageload: BJ Lazy Load. When someone lands on your site, all the content on the page is automatically loaded. If you have a lot of content on the page, the load time is going to be slow. BJ Lazy Load delays loading all of the content until the user is ready.
