How Do We Speed up WordPress and Improve PageSpeed Scores, without Hurting the User Experience?

Every website is unique, but most slow WordPress websites go back to the same core issues:

  • Certain themes or plugins will add unnecessary “bloat” to your website, making your web page load times increase.
  • Low-quality web hosting or oversold web hosting servers will not have enough resources, leading to slow websites.
  • Oversized or uncompressed images that slow your website down.

We’ll audit your WordPress website speed using Google PageSpeed, Google Lighthouse, and GTmetrix. We’ll take the results from all of these speed tests to see what is causing your website to be slow.

We’ll optimize your website speed, showing you detailed before and after results of our speed optimization changes, along with a summary of what website optimization adjustments were made.

Dan has been involved in the design of my websites from the inception. He is the best web designer we have worked with by far. He is always quick to return calls, produces excellent results, and his pricing is so reasonable - underpriced really. Highly recommend.

Overdue review because it's been almost 3 years since I started working with Bocain Designs. Thanks for everything you've done, I'm so happy to have you as my "partner" behind the scenes making my websites as beautiful, functional, and fast as they are. I know 100% that my SEO is what it is because of the work you put into it. There are so many aspects that need to be addressed all of which should have separate 5-star ratings: quality, communication & responsiveness, speed & timeliness, reliability, and professionalism. I feel like I'm forgetting more aspects... overall I could not be more pleased! I have used Bocain Designs for 2 businesses now, and would never consider hiring anyone else for future projects, or to continue to help me with current projects. It's very hard to find good reliable people who are also fantastic at what they do and care about the work they put out there. Look no further if you had any doubt and trying to decide between a couple places - full stop - hire Bocain!

When we decided we wanted to give our website a makeover/revamp, we had already used Bocain Designs for a project to speed up our site, so we reached out to see if they would be willing to take on our new project. This project was extremely large and required consistency and collaboration working together over 6-8 months, and Dan was kind, patient, and knowledgable throughout the entire experience. He ended up delivering exactly what we pictured for our new website and we are so happy to have found Bocain Designs. We will continue to work with them on the maintenance of our site and highly recommend them to anyone looking for these services.

WordPress Speed Optimization FAQ

How do we speed up WordPress?

After we audit your website for speed and performance, we’ll address each item of concern found in our speed tests. Our WordPress speed optimization service may include the following:

  • Optimize Images
  • Lazy Load Images
  • Generate WebP Images (“Next-Gen” Format)
  • Preload Google Fonts and Local Fonts
  • Preload Page Caches
  • Minify JavaScript and CSS Files
  • Merge JS and CSS Files (if applicable)
  • Delay JS or Defer JavaScript
  • Leverage Browser Caching
  • Enable Compression
  • Connect or Activate CDN for Faster Global Load Times
  • Remove Unused Plugins
  • Pre-fetch third-party DNS Lookups
  • Connect Cloudflare DNS, CDN, or DDOS Protection

What else can make WordPress websites slow?

Sometimes WordPress can’t be made faster, even with plugins. If you have already had your WordPress website optimized and it is still slow, then your web host might be the problem.

Shared web hosting is often slow and unreliable, and if your WordPress website has a lot of plugins, you’re likely going to need better hosting to speed up your WordPress load times. Your website can only be as fast as your hosting can support.

Can we improve your Google PageSpeed score for mobile and desktop?

Yes! When we audit your website speed, we look for ways to improve loading times on both desktop and mobile. In some cases, mobile website speeds may require design changes, to ensure your website meets mobile web design standards. Many WordPress websites are slow on mobile, often failing Core Web Vitals due to their Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) scores.
