How to Improve WordPress Speed for Ranking Part Two
Step 3: Caching And Code
Further Savings Usually Affect The Code or The Functionality of The Website Directly. This Means:
- extensive HMTL code or numerous comments in the code
- unused or unnecessary / too many plugins or add-ons in content management systems
- Extensive CSS and JS files Can increase the website size - and reduce the loading speed.
- Data retrieval of components and data is delayed and should be outsourced as far as possible
- Third-party scripts run too slowly and should be reduced (or removed entirely).
Are The LCP Values in Red Instead? This is Because:
- complex HTML structures,
- Slow loading on the user side
The latter can only be remedied through extremely lean website structures. The devices used and their screen sizes can be determined via Google Analytics. Then you can quickly see which devices are available to your customers to access the website. Are these mainly older, smaller mobile devices? Then every extensive, resource-consuming element of the website should be carefully examined.
For the other points, caching plugins can be used, and the CSS structures can be changed. This can lead to display errors in large websites or e-commerce projects - and should be in the hands of professionals for large projects. For smaller websites with a precise range of functions, an add-on or plugin can usually take over the basic adjustment without major display problems.
