Your slow WordPress site is hurting your Google rankings and the effect is that you will be losing you customers as we speak.
Let us take all the headaches, hassle and pain out of speeding up your WordPress website.

In most cases we will have you loading faster in less than 48 hours.
Your Google rankings, your Adwords and Facebook ads, and all the leads that come through your website are tied to the speed and user experience of your website.
If your site is slow to load it annoys prospects and even your existing customers. Google does not like slow websites and have publicly stated that slow websites will not rank as high in the search results. Our experience working with clients on their SEO has confirmed this too.
It is hard to disagree with the fact that a slow loading website has a huge negative impact on the overall performance of your business and your bottom line.
Fortunately, it iss usually a quick fix if you know what you are looking for.
With our WordPress speed optimization service we will fix your slow loading website or we will give you your money back.
Typically most of our customers that purchase our standard speedfix service will see the load time of their site drop to somewhere between the 1-2 second mark. Most start at somewhere between 5-10 seconds, often more.
Our business speedfix has a load speed target of under 1 second includes migration to a Vultr VPS host – for most sites VPS hosting costs are somewhere between $11-$23/month.
As a general rule, between 1-3 seconds is where you need to be in terms of acceptable load times and under 1 second is that magical threshold where the page load feels almost instant. Anything over 5 seconds is going start to hurt your Google rankings and conversion rate (sales, enquiries, phone calls, bookings and so forth).
With every site we work on, we do before and after speed tests with the website speed test tool from Pingdom. Below are some recent results our customers have seen.
The Pingdom tester is completely free and takes less than 60 seconds, head to tools.pingdom.com and try it for yourself (do 2-3 tests to get an accurate average load speed).
How does the WP Speed Fix Service work?
We’ve helped thousands of businesses speed up their WordPress websites, typically there are 3 stages to a speed fix job once you complete your order:
Stage 1 – Information Gathering & Diagnosis of the Root Cause
Before we start we need more specific information on the exact problem you’re having and need to get some logons from you too.
Once we have access to your site we work through an extensive checklist to uncover the underlying cause of your website’s slow time. There’s usually one or two specific reasons why your site is running so slow.
Usually we’ll need an administrator level WordPress logon and FTP or Cpanel access.
Stage 2 – Fix the Root Cause of The Problem
Stage 3 – Speed Optimizations & Optional Implementation of Cloudflare CDN
Once we’ve fixed the cause of the slowness we can then focus on making your site as fast as reasonably possible.
In this final stage we’ll reconfigure your WordPress settings to improve your image size and compression, optimize your caching and tweak your database for maximum speed. These incremental gains can have a surprising impact on load speed.
For most websites we also recommend using Cloudflare. It’s a website acceleration service and content delivery network with 100s of servers worldwide. This means that no matter where in the world your customers access your site, they will always get the fastest possible load times.
This is an optional part of the WP Speed Fix, but it’s highly recommended as it can reduce the remaining load time by up to another 50% AND for the majority of sites we work on, the free plan is all you need.

Frequently Asked Questions
Probably, it depends how many sites you have in your network. We count each site on your network as a standalone site so you'll need to purchase a Speed Optimization Service for each site you want fixed. Some of the changes we make as part of our speed optimizations will have an impact on your entire network (a positive impact).

That depends.If you're using Bluehost, Godaddy, Hostgator, A Small Orange or any other EIG owned company you'll probably need to move to get your site loading super fast. The only way cheap companies make any money on those $3-5/month hosting plans is to stack 10,000 other websites on the same server and run the server as hard as possible.
We find that we can get sites running on these services down to a passable 3-5 second load time BUT the site will struggle to handle more than a handful of simultaneous users at a time.
When it comes to hosting you get what you pay for - it's unreasonable to expect a high quality service when you pay more for a coffee than you do for an entire month of hosting or 1-2 clicks on your Adwords or Facebook ads.
Typically we'll recommend these 3 options for customers on a poor quality web host:
