Since Google has officially made page speed and user experience as a ranking factor in search engine results page (SERP), having a fast loading site is very crucial as part of your SEO tactics. If you want to rank higher than your competitors on Google search, it is time to pay attention to your site's pagespeed!
Aside from the SEO purpose, pagespeed can also affect user engagement and conversion. No one wants to see a slow site. Reports show that slow load time can reduce conversion and increase bounce rates. In other words, if your site is slow then your visitors and customers are more likely to exit your site and move on to your competitors' sites.

The best thing you can do for your WordPress website in 2021 is to tune up its performance, but that's not always as simple as it sounds. Generally, you can sum up performance as 50% site speed and 50% user experience, otherwise known as UX. Unfortunately, UX improvements often lead to lower site speed, which means you may be faced with a difficult challenge when optimizing your site.
It takes a delicate balance, but it's possible to fine-tune your WordPress performance by enhancing both UX and site speed when you choose the right techniques and technology.
My name is Tom Fanelli and I'm the co-founder of Convesio, a next-generation managed WordPress host. With two decades of digital experience, I've gone from owning my own agency to taking on multiple senior executive roles at large public companies.
In this post, I'll cover the most common issues I see with WordPress performance while considering the perspective and impact of both speed and UX, as well as what you can do about them. Let's get to it!

Popups are increasingly becoming one of the most common tools that most website owners are using. Whether you need survey responses, signups, or sales, popups allow you to take control of your audience online. Popups are types of interfaces that would suddenly appear in the foreground, usually in a small boxed window, to display information as the visitor lands or scrolls on a site. This window displays information related to the website and its objective would be to capture the visitor's attention and take control of their next step.
Today, there are many different type of popups, making it challenging and equally important to select the right design for the right purpose. The free Themify Popup plugin provides you with an easy and intuitive way to create all kinds of popups that would cater to your needs. You can display popups based on certain conditions such as time-based, on-site load, scroll-triggered, or exit-intent - all of which can be used to fulfill a certain action on any given site. In this post, we'll look at some of the best recommended designs for WordPress users.
