    I inherited this web site … and its Google Page Speeds results are quite poor. We have installed the Free version of W3 Total Cache but still the performance is not very good.
    We have looked at the Pro version of W3 total Cache, but think we might be better off getting you to do either the “Performance Audit & Consultation” or “Remove Render Blocking JS”.
    We woud ideally like you to do the one that will make the most difference & perhaps then we will engage you to do the next step.
    Please advise what you think will likely give us the best outcome for the ~AUD$200 we have available in the budget at this time.
    Many thanks, Simon.

    Hello Simon,

    Thank you for reaching out and I am happy to assist you with this.
    The optimal W3 Total Cache configuration takes into account a number of factors: your theme, your plugins, the technologies available on the server, and the details you supply when placing your order. Since everyone’s site and traffic and theme are different, there is no one size fits all solution.
    So, I would recommend the Performance Audit solution.
    This service also takes into account the idiosyncrasies of Web Performance Optimization (WPO) in a WordPress context. It means that WPO best practices have to be modified for WordPress because of how the application operates. The number of counter-intuitive realities could fill a small book.

    This means that the best configuration for your site might not involve enabling Objec, database caching, and other things that you might expect. As a matter of fact, it can actually hurt performance by implementing features for the wrong situation.

    The deliverable with this service is a faster site. It’s impossible to predict the extent to which our work will improve performance (especially true for code we didn’t write running on servers we didn’t build), but our promise is that we’ll do our best.

    Additionally, we’ll send along a performance report that outlines the improvements, recommendations (if any), and what else we can do to help you reach and exceed your performance goals. There are many ways that we can help improve performance, you should think of W3 Total Cache configuration as the starting point for optimizing your site.

    Upgrading to W3 Total Cache Pro makes this work even more effective, as we’ll have additional features to utilize in delivering the best possible results. It’s best to upgrade before placing your order since we can do this for you, and you can upgrade right in the Dashboard on any W3 Total Cache page.

    I hope this answers your question.
