eBook Store – Bundle Topics

WE DO OUR own primary theme and plugin speed research. We want to know the truth about what works and what doesn’t. We help you discern between web truth and error. Between the vital and the trivial.

People won’t tolerate a frustrating, slow-loading mobile website.

They leave. Annoyed.

Speed research reports included in BUNDLE.ME:

Contact Form 7 has a hidden speed problem you need to know about. Contact Form 7 plugin alternatives. Every website needs a contact form. Right? Well, maybe not. One thing we know for sure is that if you need a contact form, the one you definitely do not need is Contact Form 7. Huh? How can that be? Contact Form 7 is wildly popular. Everyone uses it. Ummm…no. Not everyone. It’s not that Contact Form 7 doesn’t work. The problem is that Contact Form 7 slows down your website. Not just the Contact page, but every page and post on your site takes a hit. But don’t worry. In this book you will find out why, and you will get all the details necessary to choose a much better alternative for your contact forms.


How to go faster than the “speeding” Hummingbird plugin.
They advertise the Hummingbird* plugin as the queen of WordPress optimization. They say its automated optimization will zip through your site and get things running at record speed. It’s loaded with features for file compression, caching, performance monitoring, Cloudflare integration, lazy loading images, and more. All in one plugin. Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? In FLY.ME, we’ll show you what happened when we tested Hummingbird, and then show you alternative plugins that work even better than Hummingbird at zero cost.
Duplicate popular Hummingbird plugin features – without a nasty $294 annual membership fee. Hummingbird plugin adds 30.1 milliseconds of global site drag. Every page and post of your site slows down. *Hummingbird is a licensed trademark of Incsub.

Why installing Yoast SEO plugin is herd behavior.
 In SEARCH.ME, speed expert Steve Teare shows you what Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is all about, and explains why expensive (and even free) SEO plugins don’t do much more than slow down your website and cost you a lot of money – and shows how SEO plugins can take you down the rabbit hole of lost and wasted time.
Remove popular Yoast SEO search engine optimization plugin – without an awful $89 annual fee. Yoast SEO Pro plugin adds global site drag: up to 240 milliseconds! Every page and post of your site slows down. *Yoast is a licensed trademark of Yoast BV.

SEARCH.ME is no longer available as a single issue. Still included with BUNDLE.ME purchases.

Why future-proof Twenty-seventeen theme is still superior speed strategy.
 One theme. Just one. Of the thousands of available WordPress themes, we recommend just one for best speed and flexibility. Which theme is that? After lots of torture-testing and a lot of thought, our first choice is the free default WordPress theme, Twenty Seventeen. Yes. Even today – years later – it still holds up for great speed.

Why security plugins like iThemes Security kill your speed.
Popular security plugins are often the slowest, and are also expensive. They can eat up server resources at a rate that might make your hosting service shut down your website. You don’t want that. In this book, you will get the truth about security plugins and learn how to choose a good one.
Duplicate popular iThemes Security plugin features – without an atrocious $80 annual fee. And avoid 36 milliseconds of global site drag. Every page and post of your site slows down. *iThemes Security is a licensed trademark of iThemes.


Do free and fast themes produce the best website?
 In THEME.ME, we tell you exactly how to find the best (and fastest) theme possible for your website. We explain why you probably don’t need a theme that has a great-looking demo, along with lots of fancy features. And we describe the benefits of using free themes vs. paid themes. We also give you our secret methods for choosing the best themes. And we drive home the idea that you can have great features on your website and still get the all-important super-fast speeds you need and want.

Make your website faster than WP Rocket for $0.00 dollars.
In BLAST.ME, we take a close look at the popular WP Rocket* plugin to see if it really helps make websites load faster. We explain our findings, and then provide you with detailed information and recommendations that will help speed up your website without paying WP Rocket’s $49 annual fee. It causes 109.1 milliseconds of HTML site drag on every page and post.

Is Smush plugin good enough for your images? We don’t think so.
 People talk a lot about image optimization and tout their favorite tools for squeezing their images. But before you follow the prevailing advice, we invite you to read CRUSH.ME and see what our independent tests showed. The results might surprise you. We found out that the most popular of all these tools, Smush, doesn’t really do much at all. Our recommendations aren’t based on opinion, they’re based on our own tests, and we tell you which ones do the best job for the way you work.
