Before I started the WordPress speed Up Optimisation Blueprint, I ran a speed test on a standard WordPress website. The standard WP site loaded in 0.721 seconds– marking the time to beat as 0.7 seconds. This site runs the Twenty Seventeen WordPress theme and is hosted on a standard hosting platform.
Having finished the WordPress Speed Up Optimisation Blueprint I was keen to find out how good the process was and and how far away from 0.721 seconds I was!
I ran a series of WordPress website speed tests – to prove the optimisation process had worked.
My WordPress websites loaded in 0.157 seconds (157 milli seconds) from London when I ran a speed test on GTMetrix dot com.
My WordPress website loaded in 0.325 seconds (325 milli seconds) from Sweden when I ran a speed test on Pingdom dot com.
Am I happy? Yes
I can already think of a few factors I could introduce to the overall process to enhance the blueprint even further! I’ve posted links online to my article and encouraged other developers to share their feedback on techniques to improve and enhance the blueprint.
Version 2 of the WordPress Speed Up Optimisation Blueprint will be published shortly.
