Everyone hates slow websites. The longer a website takes to load, the more likely a visitor is to abandon the website before the site even finishes loading. 40% of web users leave pages that take longer than three seconds to load. That’s a really big deal! Not only do slow websites drastically increase the bounce rate, but site speed is even a factor in search engine rankings. Slow websites can really hurt a business with an online presence.

One of WordPress’ biggest assets, plugins, can easily be hurting your site’s load time. Not all plugins are very well built, and even well built plugins can slow down a website if too many are installed. Thankfully there’s a WordPress plugin to help, Plugin Performance Profiler.

This simple and unintrusive WordPress plugin scans your WordPress website and provides very helpful information on the effect of the plugins installed on your WordPress website.

Once the problem plugins are identified, a webmaster’s options are rather limited. WordPress developers could compress and consolidate CSS stylesheets and Javascript files, but beyond that, not many steps can be taken to deal with the problem plugins. Usually these speed trap plugins simply need to be removed and replaced with a different WordPress plugin.

Thanks to P3 Profiler, you could drastically increase your site’s traffic with just a few minutes of work. This plugin is so quick easy to use, there’s no reason not to scan your WordPress website.
