We reverse-engineer premium and popular plugins. We discover ways to duplicate their main features. We use a blend of discrete, free, copycat plugins. These lightweight – sometimes esoteric – clones won’t slow down your website. You don’t need to do any coding. And usually, not even any control panel setting. Most recommendations are plug and play. They work perfectly when first installed, without reconfiguration or adjustment.

Get speed tips and instructions. You’re buying our knowledge and expertise. Links to plugins are included for your convenience and backup. All open-source plugin downloads are the property of their original authors and protected by GPL licenses. They’re endorsed and available from the WordPress plugin directory. We don’t provide plugins or support. But we do answer email speed questions for 30 days after purchase.
