It’s Sunday night.

I got some sushi. And for some reason, I feel like a ninja every time I use chopsticks ๐Ÿ˜‚.

So you know, ninja are fast. And my website isn’t. 

Just don’t argue with my logic :))

It feels like a perfect night to improve my website loading speed.

For some reason, I didn’t take a screenshot before the actual process of improving my website loading speed. 

But I decided to document it. 

I will use GTmetrix and PageSpeed Insights by Google.ย 

How I improved my website loading speed?

This is what I did to improve my website loading speed: 

  • I moved the main theme styles to the footer and load minified CSS and JS libraries. 
  • Move jQuery to Footer
  • Remove Gutenberg Styles
  • Enable Lazy Load 
  • Create Cache 
  • Reduce HTTPs requests
  • Minify HTML & CSS & JS
  • Reduce the number of SQL queries
  • CloudFlare CDN 
  • and a little secret ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Now the sweet part.ย Let’s see the results.

Results for page speed optimization.

Now let’s see the results from GT METRIX:

Sweet. A+ . Fully loaded 2.1 S, total page size 365kb.

This thing is faster than a Tesla.

Now let’s see a screenshot for a blog post on desktop.

99 speed score. So close to perfection ๐Ÿ™ .

Close enough. I am satisfied with those results giving the limitations of WordPress.

That’s it. A fast website like a ninja.

Maybe in the future, I will write a blog post where I explain how you can do it too.
