Perfmatters Plugin – Why I like It

One of my favorite paid plugins in Perfmatters . Perfmatters plugin helps speed up your site is by disabling items that you do not use on your website. For example, right out of the box, emojis load on every  page of your website. If you are not using them, this is just slows it down. By disabling it, the script no longer loads and so it lowers your overall number of HTTP requests and your website page size. Another great optimization tool is to limit your post revisions. These fill up quickly in your database and slow down your website. By limiting them you can make sure you have a fast and snappy database. I have found the websites that I use this plugin on to increase in speed, especially on the larger websites.
