Is your WordPress site slow? Do you want to make your WordPress pages load faster, with just a few clicks? In this 30-minute course, we'll show you how to speed up your WordPress website using WP Rocket.
If you visit many WordPress websites, you’ve probably noticed that they often load slowly. But did you know that more than half of website visitors will leave if a page doesn’t load within three seconds?
And a fast-loading site isn’t just important for your visitors. It’s also an important factor in search engine rankings. If your site is slow, it’ll rank lower. And that means fewer visitors to your site… and less revenue, if you run an e-commerce site.

With WP Rocket activated on your WordPress site, you'll notice immediately faster page load times. But you can also dive in a little deeper and customize the settings to get the absolute best performance for your site.
