If you ever googled anything related to “how to speed up a website” you probably noticed that there are few recommendations that are repeated almost in every article over and over again.
I’ve picked 5 of the most popular tips to speed up your website that don’t work. How do I know? I’ve been speeding up websites full time for the last 2 years and was able to observe the impact of different efforts on a daily basis.
I will show you:
why exactly these 5 popular recommendations don’t work
how you can check out if something makes your website load faster or slows it down (be careful, you might want to stop paying for some services you’re using currently)
actionable steps you can take (whether you’re a site owner or a developer) to speed up a WordPress site
After this talk, you will never waste your time again on things that don’t work.
