Cloudflare has implemented an Automatic Platform Optimization for WordPress. It includes improvements in speed for sites that might be slowed down a bit by plugins or hosting limitations effectively creating a “zero-config edge HTML caching solution.” Garrett Galow explains:
“Our testing … showed a 72% reduction in Time to First Byte (TTFB), 23% reduction to First Contentful Paint, and 13% reduction in Speed Index for desktop users at the 90th percentile, by serving nearly all of your website’s content from Cloudflare’s network.”
There is a more technical post that goes into more detail.
This optimization costs $5/month for customers on the Free plan and is included, at no additional cost, in the Professional, Business, and Enterprise plans. It will work both with and without the Cloudflare for WordPress plugin. 🌩️
