WordPress update makes site faster

WordPress does a great job of making its software faster. I just upgraded and tested it, and my site is faster than ever.

Now for those who haven’t updated the other parts of their WordPress site to be fast, this is an easy lift. You just click on upgrade and in less than 3 minutes it was ready to go. I love upgrading software. It’s fun to see what new features are available. Boy that kinda makes me sound like a nerd doesn’t it?

Is there a downside to doing this? Not in my experience. I can’t think of one WordPress upgrade that I didn’t like except for the exception of them including Gutenberg editor. What a disappointment that is. I understand companies want to seem modern with a minimal interface but for the average person, we need some functional buttons. I also find it strange that right-click in this editor doesn’t bring the functionality of the menu above. It is so time-wasting to have to go up to a menu to create links. The 90s called and wanted their too-complex menus back.

I wrote a post on how to optimize WordPress. It may take a few hours or days to complete the process, but you will get the benefits back in greater traffic. Google says that when a website takes more than a second to load, people go to another website. Since using Elementor and Rocket.net my site has been under half a second to load. That is amazing!
