  1. I’ve been using some of these plugins as well as others to make my project wordpress site nice and fast. The word “fast” is always a tricky one as perceived speed can be a good thing too and the metrics you use for measuring speed are also important. Google PageSpeed Insights is a good tool as it covers not just speed optimisations. I’m currently rocking 97/100 on mobile and 98/100 on desktop for my homepage at the moment and I’ve posted about how I got there. Lots more to do though!
