Boosting Your WordPress Website Speed

With the WordPress website being so very popular it is no wonder that there is a lot of information out there on the internet on how to use WordPress and WordPress best practices. Yet the one complaint that I see most often on sites like is that WordPress is slow.

Here are some statistics that will make you reevaluate your WordPress website:

Most website users expect a website to load in as little as 2-3 seconds. Any longer and they close the site and go on to the next one.

Around 40% of active online shoppers will abandon the website if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load.

Each second longer than 3 seconds that your website takes to load loses you around 7% in conversions, 11% in page views and 16% in customer satisfaction.

The speed of your WordPress website has a significant impact on your bottom line and the way that you interact with your customers.

Luckily there are ways to speed up that wonderful content management system.
