  • Speed Hacks to Boost WordPress Site Vitals Score
    Do you want to know how to make your WordPress website load faster? In this article, we’ll show you how to use simple speed hacks to improve the performance of your WordPress site. Increasing the speed of your website will improve the overall user experience, increase website traffic and SEO. Studies show that a 1-second delay in page load time can reduce conversions by nearly 7%. Furthermore, 53% of website visitors will abandon the site if it takes more than 3 seconds to load. This means that a slow website will frustrate your visitors, and you will only have a short time period to persuade them to stay and buy your products or use your services. Aside from that, increasing the speed of your website is beneficial to your search engine rankings. Google will begin using your website speed as a ranking factor in May 2021, and it will be used to measure the type of experience your users have on your website. So, how do you know if the speed of your website is fast or slow?
