Is your WordPress blog/site running slow? Your site’s page load time is more? Tried most of the available free cache plugins? Still no luck in improving page load time?
Yeah, our website is also suffering from the same issues for a long and we are now out of it with WP Rocket, which is one of the best configurable cache plugins we have come across. It’s been almost 2 months since our site is running on WP Rocket and observed wonderful improvements in terms of performance.
We performed a page speed test in Pingdom Tools which is one of the best page speed analyzer tools to test the page load time, analyze and find bottlenecks of a particular site or page. If you could observe the snapshots which shows that our website is slower than 97% of all the tested websites as the page load time was the 60s means almost a minute to load our site which is very very huge.
The Pingdom tools reports helped us to figure out where we can improve the performance of our site. Thereafter instead of modifying our site scripts decided to search for the plugins which can take care of the performance issues which we are facing. And found some post in Google Plus about WP Rocket, there afterthought we should give it a try.
WP Rocket is a premium plugin that is developed by a couple of WordPress developers from France. WP Rocket provides you many options to configure in their settings page, filled with ready to go in terms of optimizing a website to improve page load time. Don’t worry it is not complicated as other cache plugins available in the market, it just took a few seconds to configure and the site is ready to propel our site to the stars.
The moment we saved the configuration, the page load was pretty fast just like rocket speed, and decided to test our site again with Pingdom Tools which says “Your website is faster than 72% of all tested websites” – it’s just simply WoW – we have seen a huge improvement in page load time and now it the site loads in 1 second – we cannot express our happiness after seeing this result.
