How we approach speed reviews.
1. We prefer to optimize existing content, decreasing a site’s bloat and site technology such as versions and updates to gain speed. We’ll provide an estimate on the savings this will bring.
2. Implement additional technology to speed up transmission of data. Extending your infrastructure capabilities is sometimes the way to go. We’ll provide an estimate on costs and time savings this step can provide.
3. Review your hosting environment and determine if additional speed gains could be found by replacing your hosting infrastructure, recommendations for the fastest hosting option. We provide estimates on how this step might provide gains.
4. Lastly we will provide recommended content changes and what gains these might be expected to provide.
