Web page speed test with the help of Pingdom tools | WP Learning Lab

Having a fast website is important for several reasons.

1. The faster your site is, the lower the bounce rate will be.

2. If you have an e-commerce site, your conversions will be fast (yes, this has been proven by studies conducted by WalMart)

3. Google takes into account the speed of your site when determining your search engine rankings.

The question is, how to check the speed of the website. The easiest way is to use one of the many web page speed tests available online.

In this video, I use a called Pingdom. Others are Google's metrics and speed test of the website.

They all do the same thing.

Loading your site and tracking how long it takes for each item to load. It will tell you how long it took to charge:

– Javascript
– images
– theme files
– plugin files

It will also tell you how many HTTP requests have been made. The results are often presented in a nice cascading Gantt chart.

I know you're busy, so you want to tackle the things that will give you a boost and do not waste time with the french fries.

I can tell you from experience that the biggest boosts at the speed of the WordPress site almost always come one of three things. If you can do all three, you'll be on the road for the races.

– Use a faster hosting service
– Use a faster theme
– Use only fast plugins

The first two items on this list are a little painful, I know. But no one said it was going to be easy. I found that everything else is minor in increasing the speed.

If you are committed to making your site as fast as possible, do these three things.

If none of them is an option then you will want to look into doing all or part of these:

1. Install a caching plugin that will also minimize CSS and JS
2. Reduce HTTP requests by creating sprites and combining CSS and JS files
