Speed Audit Optimization Service
Page speed optimization with improved load times for WordPress – based on GTMetrix.com and/or WebPageTest.org. Google has already made it clear that page speed is now a ranking factor (especially for mobile) for SEO purposes. Having a load time >3 seconds results in increased bounce rates and pogosticking. For ecommerce sites with a high amount of traffic this results in lost revenue.
I do not guarantee any specific load time, but I promise your site will be significantly faster. The higher the current load time, the more the site can be improved.
I have several clients with load times of 1 second on shared hosting plans. Results are influenced by external factors like theme, host and plugins etc used but times approaching 1 sec. are possible.
