benchmarking and optimization of a WordPress site - thijse - 04-12-2013 05:29 AM

Hi,

Since my WordPress blog was loading quite slowly, but mostly because it was fun, I benchmarked and optimized my website with a range of free open-source tools. I made much use of Webpagetest.org, as it gives a lot of information.

Please let me know if you find this useful, and if you agree with the conclusions that I draw:

Congratulations, the improvements look great. Since you are using Google Analytics, have you looked at the reported performance of your visitor traffic to see if it also improved (or does it not get enough traffic to display reliable results)?
