Impressed with New SiteSpeed Part 2
Part 1 showed the improvements I obtained for one of my websites.
I have now turned SiteSpeed on for my second website and analyzed the results.
The first thing I noticed, regardless of the figures below, is that my pages/posts load considerably faster.
If you want to look at the results from the first post click below.
This was what my site was showing pre SiteSpeed
And this is after:
A more subtle improvement than with the last website but still some good improvement. And reliable results. I toggled SiteSpeed on and off a couple of times and the results were consistent.
I was expecting something more significant in the numbers given how fast the site seems to be loading - but the fact that the site is loading so fast is the main thing, IMO.
These results were the same after deleting my caching plugin too (WP Fastest Cache).
I decided to also test one of my largest (lots of videos, images and comments) and most popular (and probably the highest revenue earning) posts.
This thing was a bit dire before turning SiteSpeed on:
But there was a big jump in results after turning SiteSpeed on:
Now it's still not scoring great (but this is a big post) but significantly better - and, more importantly, it seems to loading a lot faster.
And also to keep in mind, I have 12 active plugins - even after deactivating WP Fastest Cache.
