Core Web Vitals & PageSpeed Booster

Description

Core Web Vitals (CWV) is the new ranking factor

Google announced that «Core Web Vitals» are going to be a significant ranking signal for websites. In fact, Core Web Vitals or the page experience signal is going to become a requirement for a page to appear in Google’s Top Stories.

Features

  • Flush Cache: Using this option you can choose on which events ( WordPress Update,Switching Theme,Post/Page Deletion ) you want to clear website cache.
  • Auto Clear Cache: Clear you website on regular intervals , this helps you to keep your website cache updated.
  • Webp images: If images are slowing down your website, then converting them to WebP format can improve your page load speed test scores.
  • Lazy Load: Lazy loading allows your website to only load images when a user scrolls down to a specific image, which reduces website load time and improves website performance.
  • Minification: If you are trying to achieve 100/100 score on Google Pagespeed or GTMetrix tool, then minifying CSS and JavaScript will significantly improve your score.
  • Remove Unused CSS:Unused CSS is any CSS code added by your WordPress theme or plugins that you don’t really need. Removing this CSS code improves WordPress performance and user experience.
  • Google Fonts Optimizations: You may start noticing external resources like fonts affecting Google PageSpeed + load times. This is where loading Google Fonts locally comes into play.
  • Delay JavaScript Execution:You can delay JavaScript based on user interaction. This can be a great way to speed up the paint of the page for Google PageSpeed when something isn’t needed right away. Especially heavy third-party scripts like Google Adsense, Google Analytics etc.
  • Cache: Caching is one of the most important and easiest ways to speed up WordPress! it reduces the amount of work required to generate a page view. As a result, your web pages load much faster, directly from cache.

I don’t normally leave reviews but this thing trashed the site. Pictures, margins, menus, everything. Uninstalling didn’t fix it. I had to restore from backup. You will regret it if you install this.

The plugin works fine alright. Bulk-changes all images to webp which is a valuable feature.But unfortunatedly it breaks spelling in german as it replaces all «Umlaut» with gremlins (¢#^¶)

Hello Magazine 3 team, I tried this plugin on my website which uses a theme named Vehica this week. The result on Google Page speed Insights was good and my mobile score matched my desktop score at 99% so top marks. However my mobile menu was no longer useable and there is no way the drop down would work. I am using WP Rocket and Cloudflare also. I disabled both of these plugins and cleared my cache and browser and still the same problem. I then turned of the cache, disabled all CSS features in your plugin and no change. My mobile menu still did ot work. Finally a deleted your plugin and the menu was active once again. I would love for your plugin to work for me and I would also even pay a small yearly fee if it did but at the moment its not good enough. Sad

This plugin caused significant issues with my blog posts that were previously performing well in Google search rankings, resulting in a noticeable drop. I am extremely dissatisfied with the outcome.

After I installed the plugin, I am unable to upload new images. This is the error I get: The server cannot process the image. This can happen if the server is busy or does not have enough resources to complete the task. Uploading a smaller image may help. Suggested maximum size is 2560 pixels. I tried to switch the Image Optimization to Manual. It does not help either.
