How to improve your WordPress website speed?

WordPress website development

One of the biggest misconceptions about modern WordPress website development is that it starts with themes and ends with modules. Nothing further from the truth. Mobile web development in particular can benefit greatly from creative look at the matter. As we all know lightweightness of websites and loading speed are two most important factors for mobile users. Making WordPress websites which load quickly on mobile devices and desktops tough can be a huge challenge. A lot of the WordPress users install plugins such as W3 Cache to improve the speed of their websites on mobile browsers. This popular plugin can only incrementally improve the performance of websites. The improvement in speed usually comes at the cost of the User Experience (UX).


WordPress as the Best Content Management Platform


At Asset Digital we think that WordPress deserves the status of the best content management system for websites. This is because it comes with a lot of useful plugins. The problem of WordPress for the professional web developer becomes apparent when the speed of website loading is an issue. So how can you improve your WordPress website speed?


How to improve your WordPress website speed ?


Since the speed of websites affects the Search Engine Results Page (SERP), web developers are looking for new ways of enabling the Accelerated Web Pages (AMP) and Progressive Web Apps (PWA) on websites with a content management system (CMS) by WordPress.


Accelerated Web Pages and Progressive Web Apps with WordPress


Naturally for WordPress, this CMS is not designed to work well with PWA and AMP. It is possible however, to make the WordPress content management system work well with PWA and AMP technologies. At Asset Digital we develop websites in Yii Framework, and by doing so we put together all the current web technologies to maximise the UX, speed, the Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and security of our websites.


WordPress Websites Security Issues


The security of all popular web platforms is more likely to be compromised simply because they are known to a lot of people – including hackers. WordPress is not an exception. The technology that makes the WordPress work well, together with Yii Framework developed by Asset Digital, is making it harder for common hackers to crack the websites’ security features.

Watch the video presented by Bhathiya Pathirana and Michael Pawlicki, the founders of Asset Digital – a WordPress Website Development London company, explaining why combining WordPress with a Yii Framework can be a good way of achieving all the current SEO and Web Security requirements.
