speed up wordpress podcast

I recently had the pleasure of doing a podcast with Lee Jackson, yes he actually shares my name :) It turned out to be a pretty great episode as we talked about a lot of different ways you can speed up WordPress.

Podcast Summary

Here is a quick summary of what we chatted about:

  • Using a CDN like KeyCDN is cheap and can dramatically increase your website’s speed.
  • Using a CDN is easy to setup with the free WordPress CDN Enabler plugin.
  • Importance of optimizing and compressing your images. I use the Optimus Image Optimizer plugin.
  • How to use WebP images in WordPress.
  • Disabling JS and CSS on an individual page and or post basis with the Gonzalez plugin.
  • How to score a 100/100 on Google PageSpeed Insights. It can be done, but don’t obsess over the score.
  • How to host Google Analytic’s locally to get rid of the “leverage browser caching” warning. I use the free CAOS plugin.
  • How to disable embeds script in WordPress
  • How to disable emojis script in WordPress
