How I Dramatically Improved my WordPress Load Time

Offsite WordPress Speed Optimization Guide

Last May I used MaxCDN cdn services and I improved my pagespeed considerably
In fact my loading times through MaxCDN were recorded as follows:

  • 1.56 seconds when loaded by Amsterdam server
  • 1.46 seconds when loaded by NY server
  • 1.56 seconds when loaded by Texas server

So just yesterday I went one step further and I configured Cloudflare Pro Plan for serving FixMyWP.com under their proxies.

The page speed improvement for my page was astonishing:

When Testing from a server located in Amsterdam:

  • With MaxCDN loading time was 1.56 seconds
  • With MaxCDN AND Cloudflare loading time now is 459ms(!)

Loading time improved by 1.1 seconds!!!

When Testing from a server located in New York:

  • With MaxCDN loading time was 1.46 seconds
  • With MaxCDN AND Cloudflare loading time now is 590ms

Loading time improved by 0.87 seconds

When Testing from a server located in Dallas-Texas:

  • With MaxCDN loading time was 1.62 seconds
  • With MaxCDN AND Cloudflare loading time now is 738ms

Loading time improved by 0.88 seconds
