WordPress on its own without a premium theme or plugins installed will load quite fast for a user. Add a highly functional theme like Avada and Woocommerce for online sales and Yoast for SEO, and all of a sudden website load times become something you notice. The great big visuals and images that make your website look great also slow down load times.
As your website’s response time has a HUGE effect on user engagement we work hard to overcome the hurdles of large images, script-heavy themes and WordPress plugins that add needed functionality.
We deliver our completed websites to clients following a process we use to ensure quick loading time as measured by Google.
The load speed of your website is a key ingredient to the success of your business online. Website speed affects Google’s ranking of your website for search queries, your user’s engagement level with your site and website conversions. Blue Tide Website design uses a combination of the right web hosting service plus the right image editing plus the right WP cache plugin to achieve Google speed tests in the green range.
