You Don't Need A Fast Website But You Need These Instead!

This post is going to be short and I think it is time to address something very important — website speed. Take a scroll on Facebook or Google and you will see thousands talking about website speed:

  • How fast a website should load?
  • How fast should a website respond to a request?
  • How fast a website can be like when integrated with content delivery network (CDN)?
  • And many more "website speed" matters

The truth is, you don't need a blazing fast website. Blazing fast websites is just for speed junkies who appreciate some show off and of course, personal satisfaction for a job well done.

What you really need is a website that loads under 3 seconds (1.5 seconds if you could) and you should be doing quite good already.

Now, what do you really need for your website? Here's a simple list:

  1. A good and reliable web hosting company (recommended are Kinsta and WP Engine)
  2. WordPress visual builder and Gutenberg (Elementor or Beaver Builder are great choices)
  3. Proper Google Analytics integrations (MonsterInsights plugin — hands down)
  4. Security plugin (Wordfence is a good choice for free plugin)
  5. SEO plugin (you can't go wrong with SEOPress)

You see, you don't need much if you want to start a blog and have a fast loading website.
