Speed up Your WordPress Website Easily with Autoptimize

Want to speed up your WordPress website? One of the first things you should try, mainly because it is free, quick, and easy, is to install the Autoptimize plugin. This will allow you to save a significant chunk off your page loading time.

According to Autoptimize’ own description[efn_note]https://wordpress.org/plugins/autoptimize/[/efn_note], their plugin works as follows:

Autoptimize makes optimizing your site really easy. It can aggregate, minify and cache scripts and styles, injects CSS in the page head by default (but can also defer), moves and defers scripts to the footer and minifies HTML.

The important thing is, they are right. With a quick install, your site will be loading faster. Don’t forget the extra options either:

The “Extra” options allow you to optimize Google Fonts and images, async non-aggregated JavaScript, remove WordPress core emoji cruft and more. As such it can improve your site’s performance even when already on HTTP/2! There is extensive API available to enable you to tailor Autoptimize to each and every site’s specific needs.

I forgot to mention them in the video. Best to disable Google Fonts, remove query strings, and remove emoji. Don’t do the Async Javascript option yet though! I will come to that later.
