WP Fastest Cache


Requires:3.3 or higher
Compatible up to:6.5.4
Released:04 August 2013
Last Updated:22 May 2024
(4.9 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:
The last few months have had me doing allot of SSL conversions and site improvements and the biggest improvement is speed, which is of course one of the major influences for SEO ranking these days. While there are allot of things you can do with image improvement and code to speed up a site you may still only get down to a 3 or 4 sec load time. to get that last little bit to less than 2.5 sec you will need caching.

I had been using comet cache but was having some issues with it and while it is still great I though I would give this one a go and see ow it performed. And well I was able to get my own site down from the 12 plus before I started the improvements a couple months back to now it is 2 sec or less.

I works very well is easy to configure and dramatically help with speed. check it out
