Note: Speed Kits works with https enabled sites. If your site is not https, you should enable it by for example using a free https provider like Cloudflare and then changing both your site and WordPress URL’s in your dashboard under settings. Performance data may also take some time in order to display in your settings dashboard.
My findings (Review)
Like you see in the testing image screenshot above, it shows that the site loaded at 4.6 seconds without the plugin and 0.6 seconds with Speed Kit installed and activated. This basically means that the time it takes for the site to load lowers which can the overall user experience.
Therefore, if you are looking for a way to increase your WordPress site speed, I suggest you give this plugin a try. Besides, you get up to a full month (30 days) free where you can make a choice to continue or drop the plugin use.
