You may remember a site refresh I did for Ann Dolin last summer: her own tutoring business, Educational Connections. This spring finds her personal site, anndolin.com, getting a subtle makeover and a substantial speed boost.
Before the refresh, the site’s Page Speed score hovered in the high eighties. Not bad, by any measure. The original codebase was inherited, and I had done all I could to increase page load times (save for completely redoing the site, which was using a WordPress template of questionable character). The stars realigned with this recent redesign, and her Page Speed score is positively screaming with a score of 97.
