WP Meteor Page Speed Optimization Topping

WP Meteor is a completely new way of optimizing your page speed. It works even on top of your existing optimizations.

WP Meteor is a completely new way of optimizing your page speed. It works even on top of your existing optimizations, including:

  • Autoptimize
  • WP Rocket
  • WP Total Cache
  • WP Super Cache
  • LiteSpeed Cache

WP Meteor is not compatible with:

  • Nitropack

The plugin is really lean and lightweight, doesn’t clutter your disk with any caches or files, creates one single record in database, which it removes upon deactivation.

How it works

If user doesn’t start interacting with page immediately, WP Meteor postpones loading and firing scripts until after page gets rendered, giving you 2x-5x boost in your Pagespeed metric.

This postponement in script loading greatly improves perceived load times for your visitors. It also significantly improves the following important SEO metrics:

In May 2021, Google will incorporate multiple page speed metrics as a search signal in the ranking algorythm

  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/wp-meteor directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Use the Settings -> WP Meteor screen to configure the plugin

Is it good for SEO?

Yes, because all that matters is visitor experience, and WP Meteor improves that experience with a lot faster load times

How can I easily compare speed with/without WP Meteor ?

Once WP Meteor is enabled, you can add ?wpmeteordisable query string parameter to a page URL in order to load the page without optimizations
