Speed Optimization

 

Google Page Insights - ClickitcoEveryone needs a faster website. A faster site means you don’t lose your viewers.

At Click IT, we can work on speeding up your site, and then once this work is done, will continue to monitor and manage the speed of your WordPress site. In always looking for the best WordPress plugins, we also utilize well-known caching plugins for increasing a managed website’s speed. We started testing and using caching plugins long ago before we started offering our Security and Maintenance Plans, so we understand what works and what doesn’t work. Now, we make our subscribed clients’ site blazing fast using our acquired knowledge and techniques, which is another reason why Click IT is better and different than all the rest.

A caching plugin preload all the pages first, so it not focused on individual page loads but instead, is focused on the entire site. Most of the time when you get visitors to your site, they will most likely click on more than one page, and that is what a cashing-plugin accelerates. In other words, it pre-loads the pages ahead of time, so the next page your visitor goes to appears instantly.

CAUTION: Take Note Regarding Online Measurement Tools:

To test the speed of your website, and any issues it may have in coding, most developers use one of these popular testing sites listed below. We will caution you, however, on relying on these testing tools too much and believing especially the grading, as they are notoriously known to be unreliable due to the many factors related to measuring speed. The most useful section these measurement tools offer is the “waterfall” tool. YouTube and FaceBook links are typically the largest reasons for the mismatches in speed measurements, from reality to measurement. It is our experience that in reality, “Page Speed Score”, “Yslow Score” and “Fully Loaded Time: don’t accurately reflect the real world loading speed of your site.
