By combining the ability to disable and remove unnecessary WordPress features and using the script manager to prevent unused resources from being loaded, my homepage went from a size of 1.8 MB with 33 resources to just 288 KB with only 17 requests with Perfmatters. – tonyteaches.tech

Perfmatters has become an essential part of my WordPress workflow. Many of the included tweaks eliminate the need for code snippets and make other performance plugins unnecessary. One of my favorite features is the ability to load Google fonts locally which preserves my visitor’s privacy while still letting me use fonts! – smartwp.com

I’ve used many of the well-known WordPress performance optimization plugins, and nothing comes close to Perfmatters. It’s straightforward to install and use, fantastic and thorough documentation, and exceptionally well priced. It’s a lightweight plugin that does everything needed to speed up your WordPress site and meet those all-important Core Web Vitals standards. – studio36digital.co.uk

I tried many other popular optimization plugins. But my website was still slow. With Perfmatters, I’m now getting a 98/100 score on mobile and 100/100 score on desktop with PageSpeed Insights. The support guys are really friendly and always willing to help. The features to block unwanted stuff and fast email support make this plugin one of the best WordPress optimization plugins.
I have around 18 YouTube videos, 24 images, and 3000 words on my website’s homepage, but it still opens in under 1.5 seconds (when visiting it for the first time). A big thank you to the Perfmatters team for keeping the plugin updated and consistently adding new features. I used to waste days/weeks optimizing my website, but now, everything is done with this one plugin. I’m a huge fan! – khalsa-website-designers.net
I build websites and manage on and off-page SEO for many clients. The missing factor has always been page speed. I use the Avada WordPress theme, which is very bloated. The performance wizard was a decent update, but overall it’s crap for page speed. I also have tons of images, text, and a complex layout on many sites to help with on-page SEO. Unfortunately, this means slower page speed.
A hosting provider, Overhaulics, recommended Perfmatters. I decided to try the personal license. Even on my own, I was able to get the page score way up. But then the icing on the cake was when I reached out for support. The co-owner and creator, Brett, gave me an extremely thorough reply. He not only went into the website but also gave me tons of suggestions that I can use across all my sites.
This plugin helps me keep my page speed fast, even though I use a bloated WordPress theme, many layout elements, and more. I finally found my secret weapon to turbocharge my websites. – snowmaddigital.com

Using Perfmatters was the easiest website performance optimization step I’ve taken all year, and one of the most impactful. Pages are loading faster in Google’s PageSpeed Insights tool and the process was hassle-free, even though I’m not a developer. The plugin provides clear descriptions of what each option does so I could quickly determine which settings to adjust without any guesswork or extra research. It took less than 15 minutes to toggle the settings I needed and see meaningful results. – careersidekick.com
Perfmatters took our Avada site and was able to get it blazing fast pretty easily. One item that is vastly different than other plugins is that they explain what each option does without leaving you to guess what the technical terms mean. This eliminates the blind guessing to optimization and you feel empowered that you can do it on your own without looking to Google or hiring a professional for help. And finally, Instant Page (a Perfmatters feature) is like MAGIC! – kernrafting.com

Web traffic, user engagement, and even conversions are directly tied to web performance, whether you’re running a blog or an ecommerce business. And now, as Google continues to prioritize clean, unbulky code in search engine rankings, it’s more important than ever to turn to lightweight performance solutions.
Enter Perfmatters. The plugin, known for its low resource consumption, cutting code bloat, and boosting performance on WordPress websites — which make up nearly 40% of sites on the internet. – hostingadvice.com
Solicitor, Hall Ellis Solicitors
We were having problems with page speed and needed a fix. Quickly. We saw the free page speed optimization plugin options out there. They were difficult to fathom and only do the basics. Really – calling a spade a spade – they’re just lead magnets for expensive consulting services.
We had to try another option. A paid plugin was the way to go.
Perfmatters was quick and easy to work out. In days we were clocking over 95 across the board on Google PageSpeed Insights. Site speed is a solved problem now. We’ve moved on to the next problem. – hallellis.co.uk

Most performance optimization plugins provide a band-aid approach. Perfmatters is different; it helps you fix underlying problems that translate into real performance gains. And with the Google Page Experience Update, performance matters now more than ever! – maxjacobs.com.au
Perfmatters is a must-have plugin for every site owner that cares about performance. It has drastically decreased my website’s loading times and improved user experience. The plugin is very user-friendly and customer support is top-notch! Give it a try and see for yourself. I know I won’t build a website without it anymore. – tattoofinders.nl

I was struggling to improve some of the Core Web Vital stats when it came to Google Analytics scripts that were slow to load. I stumbled upon Perfmatters and it helped with a local, faster version of the script. It also helped remove unwanted bloat from WordPress. – gardeningmentor.com
Founder, A Better Lemonade Stand
Super happy with perfmatters. Because of this plugin, we finally got A Better Lemonade Stand under the elusive 1 second load time. Now our whole site feels super snappy. Beyond the performance, you’ll get nothing but top-notch support from the founders themselves. – abetterlemonadestand.com
Founder, My Disability Matters
I love your WP Performance plugin – it really does work just as advertised – really simple to use and it does markedly improve the loading time of my sites. Most importantly though you maintain, update, and support your plugins which is not always the case. And thanks ever so much for your terrific support in making some plugin changes so that I, as a blind person, have full access to manage your plugin – accessibility is an important issue and your support is great and very fast and friendly. – mydisabilitymatters.com
Owner, This Is Blythe
As an art niche company heavily focused on customer experience, we’ve tried every single WordPress performance plugin out there. It’s essential that our customers experience a smooth and seamless website navigation as we have thousands of pages and photos in our database.
We deploy custom ecommerce solutions that are not popular and usually break immediately with other performance plugins. Perfmatters truly works for our business without breaking the site.
The main reason we stay with the plugin is the stellar customer service. Every quarter, This Is Blythe reviews options for performance improvement and collects customer feedback. We then use this analysis data and send critical requests to the Perfmatters team. They are very nice and always reply and fix our problems on time. We love this plugin. Well done! – thisisblythe.com
Owner, Tapestry Fine Carpet, Rug & Upholstery Cleaning
I have been using Perfmatters on my local service website for almost a year now. Three years ago, I started focusing on speed and performance with little success. Then I came across Perfmatters. I followed their performance guide, switched my hosting to Kinsta, and rebuilt my site using GeneratePress and GenerateBlocks. That resulted in huge performance gains. I tried every other “performance plugin” on the market. I am obsessive when it comes to testing. You name it; I tried it. Nothing, and I mean nothing, comes close to Perfmatters!
I have an image-heavy site with review widgets, and I sometimes stubbornly put design over function. But even so, I easily scored a 100 with PageSpeed Insights on desktop and 98 on mobile. Again, the only reason for the 98 on mobile is all my pages begin with large images that are of very high quality. A few times, I reached out to support to get some advice, and it has always been stellar. The secret to blazing-fast websites is Perfmatters + Kinsta + GeneratePress + GenerateBlocks! To be clear, I use no other performance plugins of any kind other than Perfmatters and Cloudflare. Simple, effective, fast, and great value! – tapestryfinecarpetcleaning.ca

Finally, someone has come up with a plugin that I do not have to worry about conflicting with my cache plugin, that immediately provides load speed results and is intuitive. I found the Jackson brothers from a YouTube Live stream, and Brian meticulously abated every fear and confusion I have ever had about an optimization plugin. I highly recommend this plugin and the development duo behind it! – oimarketing.ca

I currently help manage over £1.5m in SEO retainers annually, for some of the UK’s biggest brands. Loading speed and performance is such a critical part of the SEO process. I’ve cycled through many solutions and now suggest Perfmatters at every opportunity. Their ability to fix bloating, improve overall speed and generally enhance the website is incredible; it’s my go-to and has been for a long time. – shaneparkins.co.uk

We were attempting to improve some of our Core Web Vitals and purchased the Perfmatters plugin. The plugin not only sped up our website, but the support offered was one of the best we’ve ever experienced. Support was able to quickly pinpoint all issues and get them resolved the same day. – montessorilaboratory.com

I’ve spent literally 100+ hours trying to speed up my website. Using other caching plugins got me some small speed boosts, but nothing compared to Perfmatters. I wish I had found them guys years ago. My website is WAY faster, and all page speed scores increased a lot. Would highly recommend Perfmatters to speed up your website. – mycodelesswebsite.com
Review from Kevin Muldoon – kevinmuldoon.com
I’ve been very impressed with what perfmatters can do. It has reduced my page sizes and total number of HTTP requests. I’m sure I can optimize my website even further by disabling features in the script manager to load code more efficiently.
Review from Chad Barnes – skyrocketwp.com
Awesome! perfmatters couldn’t have been easier to setup—really clean design and to-the-point documentation. We took the recommendations from the documentation and reduced our requests by 10% and shaved 12% from our page speed—down from 1s to 864ms.
Saved 25% (and 500KB) off total page size using Perfmatters – this is AFTER extensive optimization using Plugin Organizer. I was shocked at how much I was able to save by fine-tuning JS/CSS that is downloaded per page. – @technologypoet (source)
Review from Matt Ahlgren – websitehostingrating.com
Perfmatters is such a nifty speed optimization plugin! Installing it and using the out of the box default settings shaved off 0.2 seconds of my homepage’s load time. What I love the most is how I can conditionally load css/js scripts on a per post or page basis. This feature alone has drastically reduced HTTP requests and helped improve my sites’s page speed.
Been playing around with Perfmatters and Autoptimize on my site. Pretty happy with this, think I can get a bit more off still though. Cheers Brian! – @njsdanrich (source)
Review from John Aps – sofianos-orthopedika.gr
The power of tailoring any WordPress website in the hands of anyone. Perfmatters is the answer to the developers that say a non-custom site will never be as fast and unbloated as a custom one! And on top of that, from personal experience, they also do have great support. Congrats to the Perfmatters team for their work. Sign me up as a fan!
Review from Jeremiah Say – graciousquotes.com
I never believed in ‘1-click success’ until I stumbled upon Perfmatters. It made my WordPress sites faster with just a click (okay, couple of clicks). The dashboard is extremely easy to use. It took me only 5 minutes from purchase to installing, to setting everything up. I was exhilarated when I saw my speed test results turned from F to C in an instance. Today, my site loads in under 1 second and I gladly attribute the success to Brian and Brett (the men behind this awesome plugin). For the price and the results it produced, investing in Perfmatters is the best decision I’ve made in my 3 years of blogging. For me, this is a must-have plugin if you’re serious about performance and the reader’s experience.
Review from Chad Thiele – aicontentdojo.com
It’s one of my core, go-to performance plugins for building fast websites because of its simple interface and an excellent selection of functionality.
Review from Sonja Gosine – hauseit.com
The Perfmatters team continues to impress us. The plugin is easy to use with plain English documentation explaining each of its features. If you want to optimize your WordPress site easily and efficiently, this is the way to do it. Plus, the team behind it really goes above and beyond in delivering. Thanks for being a great partner for Hauseit!
Review from Mark Crowell – wickydesign.com
I’ve been waiting years for a plugin like Perfmatters! The Script Manager is a huge time saver for me. I used to manually remove unneeded scripts when necessary. Now I can visually see which scripts are removed in a very organized and clean interface. Thanks for creating this very useful plugin!
Review from Phil – makechange.online
I just wanted to say that your Perfmatters plugin is magic!
The backend settings are exceptionally useful and the documentation for them is excellent, the script manager is an absolute must-have for improving performance and has saved me days of time trying to find functions to remove certain scripts, and your support is super fast and helpful.
I only wish I’d known about you sooner!
Review from Christer Emanuelsson – disapprovingswede.com
I’ve been looking for some time for a plugin to optimize my site. After many disappointments, I finally found Perfmatters, and it’s amazing. There are numerous options for tweaking and getting rid of code bloat. Each setting is thoroughly explained, so there is no need to worry. My webpage is so much faster now. If that wasn’t enough, the support is very friendly and always ready to help when needed—pure quality through and through.
Review from Adam Connell – bloggingwizard.com
Perfmatters is an essential part of my WordPress toolbox. I use it on every website because it allows me to cut bloat and speed up my sites without technical headaches.
Review from Mark Genney – thecolombianway.com
Aside from disabling JS and CSS across different page types, the global settings for handling Google Analytics and preloading fonts have also boosted speed. From a visitor’s perspective, the front-end performance enhancements are impressive.
The professional, friendly, and responsive support is what sets this plugin apart from alternative options. They have been more than willing to help with difficult to identify script combinations.
Review from Sal Qam – drivewelldrivingschool.com
Perfmatters is a fantastic plugin that improved the performance and speed of my website. I can clearly see a 40% boost and love their customer support; it’s top-notch. I would recommend this; it’s worth buying.
Review from Jonathan Rom – bosspro.co.il
With the Perfmatters plugin, I managed to get a score of 100 in Google PageSpeed Insights. It’s a wonderful plugin that makes everything simple and fast. It has a lot of amazing options that are updated over and over again. Every feature is presented with simple explanations, and the developers help me with every question I ask. I highly recommend buying the plugin!
Owner, Strategy Web Design
Perfmatters is an amazing plugin! Aftersales support is great too – Brian personally helped me set the plugin up and resolve some issues I was having. 5 stars, thanks again! – strategywebdesign.co.uk
Every second can increase the probability of a user bouncing by 32%, and Perfmatters addresses the problem directly. With the Script Manager alone, I was easily able to reduce the number of requests by half. That’s huge! – porte-document.com
Owner, MAPURE Cosmetics
I got a recommendation for a plugin called Perfmatters from a WordPress Meetup some time ago. I decided to try it, and can only say it was the best decision I could have made. My site is now lightning fast.
But the special thing is that I wrote to support, and they got back to me immediately. Brian has taken care of my site, and the values are beyond words. I’m now fully convinced and have been recommending this plugin. Thanks for the excellent support. – mapure-cosmetics.de
Web developer, Retete Diabetici
I was looking for a lightweight plugin that offered performance optimization and was easy to use. After testing many of the free and premium plugins, I found Perfmatters. My PageSpeed Insights score is now 100/100 on both mobile and desktop.
But that’s not even the best part. With Perfmatters comes their support, which is one of the best I’ve ever encountered. A thank you to the team; keep up the good work, and I can’t wait to see new features implemented. – retetediabetici.ro
