Swoop Events Load Time Optimization

I had the opportunity to help with optimizing and improving the company website for Texas based event planning company, Swoop Events. The website was graphic intensive and load times had to be improved for a better experience.

I started off by minimizing the size of the images and making them more fit for the web. That right there was a huge improvement. Moving few of the scripts to the footer, followed by combining some of them helped with the rest. Added some code bits into the .htaccess and we were good to go.

Results

  • Page load time came down to 1.13 sec from the original 1.87 sec.
  • The page size came down to 439 kb from the original 711 kb.
  • Page speed score rose to 99 as compared to the original 86

Here is the Pingdom history of the website during the process.

Divi WordPress Theme - My Review

Divi WordPress Theme
Divi is a WordPress theme that web designers do not want you to know. It comes with a drag-and-drop theme builder. You can build beautiful looking unique websites without touching a line of code. Just choose from one of the many pre-made layouts, or pick elements and arrange them any way you like.

Divi is every WordPress developer's wet dream. Surprise your clients with neat responsive websites and have fun building them.

Divi comes from Elegant Themes. If you enjoy building websites, you *need* an Elegant Themes membership. 87 beautiful themes and 5 plugins for the cost of less than a candy-bar each!


Note: I am an avid user of Divi myself and this is a honest review. I wouldn't recommend something that I do not personally find amazing.
