Our secret for fast mobile-first web pages:
we surgically remove your slowest plugins.
It’s about an often-overlooked web metric called:
GoSurgical is a non-repeating, single-time speed project that lowers your web overhead.
We do the hard work for you.
Let’s make your pages load much faster – and reduce your annual and monthly recurring hosting and plugin fees.
Strategic, well-optimized websites load fastest even on cheap, $4-per-month, shared-hosting plans.
That’s right. Just as fast as from a high-priced $39-per-month VPS (Virtual Private Server) plan.
The typical VPS has $468-per-year server rent.
With VPS, over a 5-year period, you’d spend:
Let’s compare using our single-event GoSurgical service.
With a speed site on low-cost hosting, you pay $60 per year. Same performance load time.
Five-year cost is $300 for hosting – plus our $490 GoSurgical fee.
Or $790 total instead.
Check the math gap.
In 5 years, strategic speed saves you $1,862 for your piggy bank.
GoSurgical instead. Save your hard-earned money for other more-important web resources!
How? By surgically removing global-loading plugins. Those are the ones slowing down every page and post of your site – whether they’re needed or not. You know. Plugins that add milliseconds everywhere. On millions of web pages whether there’s a shortcode present or not.
You may think, “Milliseconds? Insignificant. These guys are fanatics.” Sadly, there are many popular-plugin speed criminals. Some are worse than others. The average WordPress site has 25 plugins. PagePipe has 65. How do we stay so fast? And while using shared, cheap GoDaddy hosting without CDN and no SSD servers. It’s not magic. It took sweat – and selective plugin activation.
Think about what we’ve just said. When we double the number of smart plugins, we double your page speed. That’s contrary to everything taught at the University of WordPress. Backwards thinking? They teach: “The more plugins – the more your site slows down.” Wrong! Pure myth. We’ve proven it time and again.
“Now I know that it isn’t about how many plugins you have, it’s about the quality of those plugins. My old setup had 12 plugins and it was loading at around 2 seconds! And now thanks to your articles and a bit of tweaking, my site has 25 plugins that loads at ~900 milliseconds! – Adriantara Nadyagustama INDONESIA
“I hired several WordPress ‘speed experts’ before and all failed to achieve decent results. Steve is an expert in his field. His advice helped me understand what was slowing my website down and fix it permanently. My site used to take 5 to 7 seconds to load – and after Steve worked his magic – it now loads in less than 1 second. Thank you!” supboardguide.com HAMBURG, GERMANY
Global loading plugins suck dirty pond scum.
“What?” you say, “Global loading? Why don’t I know about this speed atrocity already?”
Plugin authors don’t publish speed specs in read.me files. And it’s not required for authorization to publish in the WordPress directory. It’s a speed-surprise package. Hidden knowledge. That’s why we test plugins all the time. We stop unpleasant surprises.
In a perfect world, slow plugins would only activate on your contact page. Or that single heavy slider solely on your home page – and nowhere else. Some plugin authors are kind and that’s what they do. But most don’t. Then you have what we call: site drag. Apathy causes site drag, not rotten code.
Selective activation: It’s saves speed. Turn off the unneeded plugins on pages and posts. Page speed is load time measured in milliseconds. Not a silly test score or rank. Milliseconds.
Selective Plugin Activation Service
Selective plugin activation has the biggest speed payback. More than dequeuing unused theme assets. Or installing minification plugins. Sometimes even more speed gain than image optimization.
So PagePipe must pop in a plugin and it’s fixed. Right? Nope. Life is never that easy. GoSurgical is a made-to-order service. Not a multi-purpose product. It requires decision-making chops.
GoSurgical is a custom workaround for crappy-built – but popular – plugins. The more popular they are – with number of active installs – the worse usually for site drag. GoSurgical is a custom solution for individual pages.
Severe limitations means creativity is most needed.
Every site is different and needs special tweaking. There’s no magic bullet, panacea plugin, or splendid shortcut to cure slow sites. Many think, “If I could only afford using fancy hosting. Or a hot CDN – or have super caching – then my slowness problems would vanish forever.” But these speed band-aids aren’t “good enough” for mobile. Over the life of your site, they cost much more money than GoSurgical.
We could build a new fast site from the ground up. We do that. But, let’s resuscitate the site you’ve slaved over first. Get some return on your investment.
Focusing on improving your site for $490 is strategic. GoSurgical is tedious but worth it. For who? Your impatient mobile users. Check your metrics. We bet most traffic is mobile now. Painful.
If your top pages or posts are 20 percent or more of your site traffic, that’s where to start. Get the biggest bang for $490 bucks. It’s better and cheaper than therapy.
Let’s put our $490 value in perspective. For $100, a professional WordPress performance optimization expert will install the WP Rocket plugin. That’s it. Done deal. They advertise all the plugin features as if they were accomplishing separate tasks. 100s of guys do this. It’s a waste. They prey on the uneducated. A sorry world.
The goal is not 100-percent flawless perfection – but 80-percent “good enough.”
Perfection has too high of cost. We use the Pareto principle – or 80/20 rule – for adding site quality. We allot GoSurgical to the pages producing the most significant difference. Not the whole site. That would cost a fortune. Some changes benefit global site speed. That’s a positive side effect from improving individual pages – an extra bonus.
Let’s improve UX on your most critical pages with GoSurgical.

Selective Plugin Activation Service
GoSurgical may not help improve speed much if you’re using a heavy page-builder plugin. Or a complex theme like Divi or The7. Blah! No wiggle room for betterment. Read more about why 〉
