Page Speed Optimization Video

Page Speed Optimization On WordPress – SEO Technical Audit Part 1

Part 1 of a new series Completing A SEO Technical Audit begins with a popular topic Page Speed WordPress Optimization.  Its popular for good reason, in an article I note an example where a site ranks higher on mobile search than its bigger, higher DA competitor because of page speed. 

The video walks through using GTMetrix.com to speed up a client site.  In the video we also use Think With Google and put a plugin called JetPack into place to serve as our free CDN option.

I don’t usually use Jetpack and prefer Cloudflare for the CDN but in this site’s case I lacked access to the domain DNS servers which hamper Cloudflare installation. 

Jetpack is a plugin of last resort, and I honestly don’t recommend it.  Its broken more sites than helped in my experience.

 

 

This video is primarily focused on page speed optimization but it also serves as a good start for any SEO Technical Audit.

Page Speed is a ranking factor. In mobile searches its even more important. WordPress Optimization is essential to meet the quick load times expected by visitors. 

An SEO Technical Audit usually begins with setting a baseline and then outlining the goal and why it’s being missed.
