Our Speed Fix service covers a single site if you need help with more
than 1 site you can adjust the quantity during the checkout process.
If you need work done on a large number of sites we can offer a bulk discount. Skype live:woorke and we can talk further.
We weren't happy with the speed test tools on the market so we built our own! Check it out here or at app.wpspeedfix.com In the past, we used Pingdom and GTMetrix and while they're both good tools, they had huge gaps in their recommendations. GTMetrix servers are also quite slow and report slower load times than they should.
We generally don't use Google Pagespeed Insights as it doesn't fully test site speed.
It primarily checks your site against a checklist of technical best practices and while the newer version does look at some speed elements, many of the technical recommendations Pagespeed Insights provide are not practical or don't move the needle in the real world.
It's actually possible to get a very high score in Pagespeed Insights, 90/100 or above, and still have a very slow loading site.
Pagespeed Insights also completely ignores critically important elements like geographic location, DNS hosting speed and reliability, content delivery networks and often spits out a bunch of recommendations that at best are marginal speed improvements and at worst a complete waste of time.

...it analyzes the elements that really matter when it comes to speed, areas like DNS hosting speed, TTFB, page size and a number of other elements that a critically important on the modern web.
Probably, it depends on how many sites you have in your network. We count
each site on your network as a standalone site so you'll need to
purchase a Speed Fix service for each site you want to be fixed. Some of the
changes we make as part of our speed optimizations will have an impact
on your entire network (a positive impact).

Yes! Nearly half the sites we work on are Woocommerce sites that are running
Typically we can have your Woocommerce site loading in under 2 seconds BUT you'll need to be on moderately good hosting.
If you're on Bluehost, Godaddy, Hostgator, A Small Orange or any other hosting the hosting company owned by EIG you'll probably need to upgrade to get consistently fast speeds.
Typically we recommend CloudWays for Woocommerce hosting but any of the hosts on our Fastest WordPress Hosts list are appropriate.
If you're using Bluehost, Godaddy, Hostgator, A Small Orange or any other EIG owned company you'll probably need to move to get your site loading super fast. The only way cheap companies make any money on those $3-5/month hosting plans is to stack 10,000 other websites on the same server and run the server as hard as possible.
We find that we can get sites running on these services down to a passable 3-5 second load time BUT the site will struggle to handle more than a handful of simultaneous users at a time.
When it comes to hosting you get what you pay for - it's unreasonable to expect a high quality service when you pay more for a coffee than you do for an entire month of hosting or 1-2 clicks on your Adwords or Facebook ads.
On high quality hosting, with a well built website theme you can expect a well built site to load in 1-1.5 seconds in the country where it's hosted.
For your overseas visitors, expect to see an additional 0.5-1 second additional load time for them. We recommend all sites use Cloudflare as this will help speed up the site for your overseas visitors quite significantly.
To get below that magical 1 second mark most sites need to start looking at removing tracking codes, plugins and externally hosted elements like Facebook and Twitter social widgets and like boxes, and Youtube videos.
Generally we don't have any control over what these third party elements do so if speed is your number 1 priority than reducing the number of these elements on your site is critical - we can advise on the best course of action here and often there are things that can be done to reduce the impact these elements have on load speed.
A good example here is removing the news feed from your Twitter and Facebook social widgets as these load an extremely large number of elements.
Over time many sites end up with a huge amount of analytics, tracking and remarketing codes embedded in the site and often many aren't being used. Removing the codes that aren't being used will often improve load time by half a second.
One other common problem we come across is video backgrounds - while these might look great they often are adding 5-10mb of bloat to the page size, a lot to download on a slow internet connection!
It's important to recognize that there will always be a tradeoff between site speed and what works from a sales and marketing perspective. For example, removing all Youtube video embeds from a page will absolutely speed it up but then it's going to perform as well from a sales and marketing perspective.
While fast load times are extremely important we want to ensure that other equally important sales and marketing elements are not cannibalized in the process of improving your site speed.
Yes, occasionally we get a site that we can’t fix. Usually, the site has one of the issues listed below. In many cases, we can work with you to resolve the issue. Most often the issue is related to the hosting the site is sitting on and in that case, we can advise what needs to be done to resolve the problem and can migrate the site for you.
If we hit a major roadblock after you order that means we can't speed up your site we're happy to give you a refund on your service.
It’s running on a Windows server.
While WordPress can run on Windows it’s designed to run on a Linux or LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) system which means you’ll never get a Windows server to perform as well as a LAMP setup. If site speed matters to you the site should not be running on a Windows server.
It's running on a complex WordPress Multisite setup
WordPress Multisite isn’t the best for performance, especially if you’re running a Multisite setup with a huge number of plugins or a large number of sites. Multisite is often more convenient but the tradeoff is flexibility and sometimes performance.
The site is running on a VPS and the VPS has issues
Fixing VPS and server issues is outside the scope of what we do. The speed of your WordPress site is limited by how well the server is configured and most cheap VPS setups are poorly configured. Unless you have a specific reason to use a VPS, a managed WordPress host is often a better option because the server has been configured and tuned specifically for WordPress.
The hosting plan is poor quality
Your site is not going to perform if you’re on bargain-basement hosting. There’s no way around this, cheap hosting is poor quality, ultimately you get what you pay for. As part of our service, we can migrate you to a better quality host.
You have too much traffic for your hosting plan
Your hosting plan needs to be matched well to the level of traffic your site is getting. If you're getting 5000 visits a day you're going to need to be on a higher grade hosting plan that a site that gets 50 visits a day. Using tools like Cloudflare will dramatically improve performance for high traffic sites but at the end of the day, your site speed is limited by the performance cap on your hosting. In cases like this quite often the solution is to move up to the next level hosting plan. The IT department wants to host the site internally
IT departments are generally not commercially motivated and aren’t focused on what’s best for business - after all, if things run smoothly they have nothing to do, if they have nothing to do then they don't have a job. Often an internal IT department will want to host the site internally rather than using a dedicated WordPress host that can do a far better job. If your site is hosted on internal IT infrastructure then we might be limited in how we can help.
Your site has custom dev work done or is running an obscure or poor quality plugin
Occasionally we come across a site that has had custom development work was done that is very poor quality or is running a WordPress plugin that conflicts with other plugins or is simply just rubbish. Most often in these cases, the plugin or development work is trying to do something WordPress was not designed to do and it's breaking the site or causing performance issues.
The logons we need are a WordPress administrator level password, FTP or Cpanel access and domain registrar logon for your Cloudflare migration.
If you’re not comfortable sharing your domain registrar logon (which is completely understandable) we can give you the DNS servers to point your domain at once we’re ready to switch over to Cloudflare
