Optimizing a wordpress site can be a nightmare for many, especially newbies. But power of wordpress is in it’s community and the many free and awesome plugins you can use. Today I will tell you how you can get A grade in this straightforward guide!

Plugin needed
  • Wp Supercache
  • Phastpress
Cache and minification
We will use Wp supercache for caching database requests but you must also enable file minification.
It’s free and easy to setup. I never touch any configurations, usually I just install and activate cache in settings.

Used for:
  • Page caching
  • Page compression/minification

Page Optimization
Here's my secret, it's called PhastPress! This plugin is insane, you have just to install it and activate it with a click! It covers every page optimization possible and you need just one click to activate it!

Used for:
  • Image optimization
  • Asynchronous scripts and stylesheets

Test on my website
I totally disabled all caching and optimizations on site and checked site without Defer style option in Phastpress in the first two > 22 / 49

I activated the two plugins with two clicks and checked again the score of my website on PageSpeed > 63 / 97

What do you think about 5G? Does WP speed optimization will be important in the near future, since 5G going to offer much faster internet speed for users?

as long as it interests Google and it's relevant to seo, then it interests us too

I went from 70 mobile pagespeed to 93 with this alone: Asset CleanUp: Page Speed Booster


I've just been dabbling on 3 test sites using different option.

Used this on one site and did nothing else.

yeah it was little better.

I'm sorry man.. this is just an alternative to other plugins! It works great and you need a click

You should try with PageSpeed Ninja, but it s way more aggressive and can break your site
