Lightweight and high-powered, Hummingbird caches, minifies, combines, defers script loading, compresses, and makes your site a lean, mean speed machine.
It packs a punch, making optimizations in line with Google PageSpeed Insights and finding new ways to make it load faster, because when it comes to page speed – and especially Google – every millisecond counts.
Hummingbird: WordPress on Speed
We built Hummingbird to give you simple and intuitive tools to get your page speed well and truly cranking.
How many times have you run your site through Google PageSpeed Insights and stared at the results, wondering how exactly to follow up the vague suggestions? Things like “leverage browser caching” or “minify CSS” and even “optimize images.”
We designed Hummingbird in a way that not only directly fixes many of the these issues slowing down your site, but also provides clear and easy to follow instructions on how you can further improve your PageSpeed Insights score, right down to the specific files you need to edit or move to the footer of your site, and even the images you need to compress.
Hummingbird communicates directly with our Performance Service, which we custom built to power The Hub for our members, effectively turning your site into an awesome experimental speed platform. This lets you tweak your configurations and immediately see in-dashboard what effect the updates you make have on your page speed.
Scan your site and get an in-depth report on just how well it’s performing.
Hummingbird examines the same vital components of your website as Google PageSpeed Insights and gives you an overall score out of 100 so you can quickly determine whether you need to make performance improvements to your site.
The performance report also provides scores out of 100 for aspects of your site that you may want to consider fixing, including render blocking resources, server response time, image optimization, and minification.
