While we’re all aware of the evils of downtime, and the ever-growing threat of security breaches, we wanted to take a moment to talk about one of the less obvious, but equally important factors that drive modern customer engagement, and how WP Engine can help. That factor is speed. With the increasing complexity of device-scalable UIs and the relentless demand for data-heavy content, even a well designed and well-maintained website, with the best of intentions, can find itself struggling to load for the end user at an acceptable speed. This can be due to a number of factors, from how your site is caching globally, to fine details in your lovingly-crafted custom code. It’s a terrifying statistic, but a one-second delay in loading time can cause as much as a 7% drop in conversions from first-time engagements. With so much to do and so little time, your average potential customer simply won’t wait before moving on.
This is where WP Engine’s Page Performance tool comes in. Page Performance allows you to analyze every detail of your page’s speed, hunts down problems for you, and provides solutions, all while integrating seamlessly into your existing workflow. You can even automate testing on a regular basis, allowing you to maintain a consistent rate of performance even if your site undergoes frequent updates. Analytics are presented in a manner of formats from a user-friendly graphical interpretation right down to the raw data, and page rendering can be viewed in an incredibly detailed filmstrip format, giving tenth-of-a-second insight into how exactly the visitor is experiencing the content. WP Engine even offers a free diagnostic check of your site’s current performance to help you see how you’re doing before you get started.
