If you’re like most webmasters, you probably read a post about how to speed up WordPress, implemented the tips, improved your page load times – and then called it a day. Does that sound like you? I know was guilty of this at some point.
But would you notice if your site slowed down in the future? We have a tendency to think of our site as “optimized,” even though optimization is a continued process, not a one-time thing.
You might add a new plugin that slows things down. Your host could make some switch knocks down your performance…who knows? The only way to find out is to periodically test your page load times. Using a tool like Pingdom, it only takes a few seconds and you get peace of mind that you’re still fast.
