WordPress Plugin of the week this week is Autoptimize by Frank Goossens.

What is it?

Autoptimize optimises your webpage code in a super simple fashion.

Why do you need it?

Autoptimize has improved the page speed load on every WordPress install I have tested it on so far from custom made themes to off-the-shelf commercial themes.

It’s simple to setup and is definitely worth installing and configuring if you want to squeeze the last few pieces of slowness out of your website.

I’d advise checking out the configuration FAQs at the bottom of the plugin page if you want to go beyond the default setup as these things can get quite heavy on technical jargon.

How much does it cost?

Autoptimize by Frank Goossens is 100% free.
