WordPress Plugins For Lawyers: Increasing Page Loadtimes

WordPress allows you to further enhance your site by adding plugins. Most plugins are free and some are no brainers to add to your site.

Page Speed Plugins

Google and other search engines are obsessed with speed. A faster internet means better user experience. According to several reports that are widely available on the internet, user no longer have the patience to wait for a long time for a page to render.  This means “seconds”, and any site that takes more than 10 seconds (that’s a lot already) to load is nearing the borderline of loosing traffic.

WP Super Cache / W3Total Cache – These plugins are highly recommended as they reduce page speed load time by serving cached version of your files. Essentially, these plugins generates static html files from your dynamic WordPress blog. After a html file is generated your webserver will serve those file instead of processing the comparatively heavier and more expensive WordPress PHP scripts. This improves the user experience (UX) of your site by increasing server performance, reducing the download times. Better UX, good for SEO.

They really help a great deal but you have to make sure that they dont interfere with any other plugins. I find sometimes they can cause other plugins to not work correctly, so you have to sometimes test things out but usually they work fine and do make a difference.

A faster loading website can not only provide a better experience for the user that is visiting your site, but it can sometimes make a difference in getting better organic SEO rankings for your lawyer site.
