Let’s have a look at some of the jobs I have done
Yep SSL are all in place and running well as the site is hosted by wpengine.com
Report is looking great and the site is fast
YSlow Score could look better but it is all third party content
Now this site has to be slow as it is made up of all third party content images from instagram and video clips from YouTube, but i have a bunch of tricks CloudFlare.com and WpEngine.com and these together, works well to help with site speed.
SSL is Running trough CloudFlare.com and SSL from WpEngine.com so we have two serts in place to make sure it works 110% all the time
The power of great caching leads to great speeds
Now why is the PageSpeed score so bad well the site is made of images on the fly and there is really no way to fix this, yes but i can fix the images, but the site is updated every day and the images change every day so there is no way to tweak images that is made on the fly…
PageSpeed Score F (29%) (Ouch but that is life)
Total Page Size 3.57MB Huge page size but the site still load at 2sec.
My Rule of thumb is 1mb = 1sec load time so this site should have loaded at 4sec
This report is really a stress test on the server as it is running the same report 9 times
SSL is looking great serts at WpEngine.com and CloudFlare.com
WoW the real power of caching makes for a super fast website
Do we sometimes over believe reports, yep i love doing it but the score is B why not A well the site is to fast for the report. :)
Some site are fast and some are slow, some have great reports and some don’t so don’t always believe the reports, pull up your site, is it fast then your good to go, if not then you need me.
I hope this helps to give you an idea, you can not win with all websites but in most cases it will be faster – Mark de Scande
Most sites i run trough takes about 10 hours ($75 x 10 = $750) is it worth to spend $750 on a site to get it fast, well that is up to you.
