thank you so much for your great tips. I seem to have a load time of 4.47s on a shop category page That must go faster, otherwise I am afraid the shop is going to fail.
WHich of you 450 post should I specificly look at?
I am on a shared hosting plan here in The Netherlands. Shouldn't I be using Cloud services that are hosted in mainland europe for quicker hosting?
Are you willing to help me out on the whole process? :)
Many many thanks
Sorry for not being clear: it's this post (further up this thread).
Hosting in main land europe as opposed to? US? UK?
All my sites are actually hosted in US even if most of them are european. Having said that you should get slightly fast load times if your hosting is in Europe (and your site is for Europe too).
Some people speculate that Google also likes if your site is hosted in the same country as your site targets.... I have no idea if that is true, but it sounds plausible...
My home page (DF store page with 9 products):
Category page (12 products):
Category page (48 products):
Note that - especially on shared hosting - you need to run the tests a few times...
The speeds shown above are the optimal times... i.e. this is what you could get if you have steady traffic to your site.
There are many factors that influence these results:
Shared hosting: the load on your server.
Traffic: If you don't have a lot of traffic your site will 'fall asleep' and the first request takes longer because stuff that might have been swapped out has to be reloaded etc.
Amazon CDN response times.
Network connection quality and load between the visitor and your hosting site.
... just to mention some...
So your end user will only see .7 sec load time if everything is running smoothly... but you know that you've done everything you can to squeeze the most out of your resources...
If you go for a more upmarket host you will see better and more constant response times...
What you need to do:
- Make sure your site is speed optimized with Datafeedr, e.g. store images, css etc locally if you can
- Make use of W3 Total Cache (or another caching plugin if you prefer)
- Make use of a CDN
- Make use of Cloudflare
That's your key to success...
I have found an excellent tuyorial to use CDN cloudfront with W3 total cache: http://www.doitwithwp.com/set-up-w3-...loudfront-cdn/
@ ayorofranche. Did you enable FEED cache?
Also page cache and Minify is giving me trouble according to W3 Total Cache: "The setting change(s) made either invalidate the cached data or modify the behavior of the site. Empty the now to provide a consistent user experience."
Did you also experience this?
Worked great for me much better load speed on www.billigjumpsuit.dk
I did everything step by step like in tutorial and it really improved my websites speed, but after these changes from six pages of products I got left with only six products. Where did all products disappear?
Solved. For some reason after changes it deselected my merchants and it didn't showed saved searches, so what I had was only manually chosen products.
No productimages visible anymore.... please help
Website URL: allairmax.nl
URL to page in question:
Just wanted to speed up my store, followed the instructions above, and now the productimages are visible, but loading very slow; a lot slower then before. Can you take a look?
update; it looks no images loading anymore :-(
How can a CDN domain be used for images?
We'd like to store the product image and thumbnails locally, but have them served via an 'origin pull' Content Distribution Service. For example, if I set the image URL to %li for 'local image', it uses:
http://example.com/wp-content/upload...1668690958.jpg , as expected. However, what I really want is:
I tried http://cdn.example.com/%li, but that just gives:
I know I can have the URLs rewritten easily enough - for example by using Apache mod_substitute, but as that does a response-global search & replace it needs to buffer the entire response before returning it rather than being able to stream is as normal.
Plugins like WC Total cache can also rewrite URLs appropriately for a CDN, but I don't know how they interact with the Datafeedr plugin or if they will also cause output buffering to be enabled.
Is there a way to achieve it by editing the DF templates locally?
If not, then this is a feature request: please add some codes such as %lip - local image path and %ltp - local thumbnail path.
There was a bug in the plugin that prevented "http://" urls from working.
It should work now. You'll just need to upgrade your version of the Datafeedr plugin to the latest version here: WordPress Admin Area > Tools > Datafeedr > Plugin Upgrade.
Brilliant - thanks for the quick turn-around Eric. I've not tested it yet, but I'll let you know if I have any further problem. Cheers.
