Is your WordPress site charging full speed ahead?

Is your WordPress site charging full speed ahead?

WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world, with over 60 million people choosing to use it as the platform for their website. As WordPress continues to grow, it is important to focus on how you can maximise the speed of your WordPress site and ensure it is sturdy enough to handle whatever may be thrown its way.

According to Google, sites lose on average 20% of their traffic for each additional 100 milliseconds it takes a page to load.  In just a second you could have lost tens if not hundreds of potential customers all because of a slow page upload. So in a nutshell - speed matters.

Not only are you potentially losing valuable visitors by having a slow website but Google also incorporates your page-load time into your site’s search rankings. The faster your site the more visitors and the higher your Google ranking. Seems simple enough doesn’t it?

So how can you ensure your site is running at full potential? One of the major influencers of website speed is your web host. Your web hosting can immensely effect the load and speed times of your website. Sure, there are plenty of hosting companies out there all actively promoting their WordPress hosting as being the best in the market. But with so many choices how can you be sure that you’re getting the best host, and your site’s speed will actually increase...? The one size fits all approach, seems to be a common technique adopted by web hosting companies but sometimes a more tailored made solution is what your site really needs.
