Salient is one of the top selling and, in our opinion, the best theme available on the market. But when tested against other top selling themes, its speed score tends to be below average at best, which is a problem. We often see Salient sites loading in 8-10 seconds, which is way too long. It hurts your conversion rate and bumps up your bounce rate significantly. Through a bunch of different tactics and a ton of experimentation and testing, we have decreased Salient load times to between 2-4 seconds, sometimes shaving up to 10 seconds off of the load time.

How We Speed Up Sites
Content Delivery Network
CDNs not only ensure a faster experience to your users, but they also help to prevent site crashes in the event of traffic surges.
High Performance Hosting
We offer the fastest, most secure WordPress site hosting on the market combined with full-service maintenance and updates.
Advanced Caching Technology
We cache and preload the site so users don't have to reload every asset each time they visit the site.
We make sure images are cropped and saved for web.
Image Lazy Loading
Images don't load on the screen until they have to, saving resources on the page.
Using expires headers helps decrease load times for returning visitors.
Minify CSS, HTML, JS
We minify the code so it takes up less space on the site.
Plugin Audit / Pruning
We get rid of unnecessary plugins or plugins that are decreasing site speed.
