The Best Settings to Optimize Your Site with WP Rocket
So you’ve activated WP rocket and now you’re wondering, how do I get the best results for my site? Every site has a different theme, a different set of plugins and different content. So the best settings will vary from site to site. We’re going to show you the safest way to experiment with the most commonly used WP rocket settings. You’ll be a pro in no time. Let’s get started. The goal is always to make your site faster. Activating more options doesn’t always result in more speed.
So don’t worry if you’re not able to turn everything on. And how will you know if your site is faster? Speed testing, of course. And we have a dedicated post about how to do that. It’s a good idea to take some benchmark speed tests before you begin configuration. Then again afterwards. Now, let’s talk about best practices. We don’t want to do is activate all the options at once. If you run into any issues on your site, you won’t know which option caused it.
So we’re going to activate them one at a time. Let’s start on the media tab. We recommend activating Lazy Load because it helps reduce the negative performance impact of images by loading them only as the visitors scrolls down the page and actually needs to see them.
You can read more about this on our blog after you activate an option. There’s no need to clear the cache. We’ll take care of that for you. Now open your site in a browser window where you’re not logged into WordPress. A private or incognito window works perfectly for this. This is important to make sure you see the cached version of your site with the optimizations apply. This way, if there’s any issue, you’ll see it right away. Check a few types of pages on your site.
If anything doesn’t look right. Don’t panic. All you have to do is unchecked. The last option you activated on your site will return to normal. Additional troubleshooting guides and videos can be found in our documentation. If everything looks good. Move on to the next option. Let’s go to the file optimization tab. The options and the basic settings are usually quite safe to activate. They won’t have a dramatic impact on low time, but are still considered best practices.
That’s especially true if your site uses HTTP too. So it’s really important to check the speed with and without the combined options to find the right configuration. If you’re not sure whether your site uses HTTP2 , you can use an online tool to check or ask your host. It’s also possible that you’re c.D and supports HTTP2 , even if your own server does not optimize CSS delivery as an advanced option. And it may not be appropriate for every site.
