We have been providing site speed services for well over a year and got serious about it this year. Since March of 2019, we have had a waiting list for our comprehensive site speed work. The reason is because we take a lot of time looking over the site, testing, coding, and testing more to make sure we can speed up a site as much as possible with out losing functionality.
We still provide this service (want to get in the waiting list?) to this day, but have found that some people just don’t have the funds necessary for a comprehensive site speed optimization. That’s OK. We completely understand.
A months ago, a new service called NitroPack.io came into play. It’s been around for most of 2019, but really got noticed when it was in a webinar about SEO.
Instantly we tested it out and worked with them to make the service better with ads and money making services that many of our customers use. This means they are now making sure your Mediavine ads are good when using their service. They also work out of the box with AdThrive ads. I’ve talked to them and they also work with Adsense, Media.net, and Monumetric.
At the same time we reached out to them to see if we can do something for our monthly support customers. After some back and forth, we finally figured something out.
Our New NitroPack Add-on
We were able to secure a great deal for our monthly support customers who have active plans with us. You can now pay for the add-on service through your account in the optional addons tab. I can’t say what the price is here, but it’s really good. Compared to the $29/month price of NitroPack, you can only get this deal if you are a support customer with us.
What is NitroPack?
If you haven’t heard of this service, it’s an automated site speed optimization service that goes over all your pages individually and optimizes them for speed. Now, when you test your site on their free test, you will get really good results. The problem with this is those scores are based on the highest optimization they offer (Ludacris).
We’ve found this is too extreme for most sites and can cause several issues, so we don’t use it. We typically use Strong.
They use a credit system that each page uses one optimization. This is typically for mobile and desktop (one page is two optimizations) but it can also be tablet as well depending on how your site functions on each size.
How Can I Get NitroPack?
If you are a monthly support customer, then you can log into your account and go to the Optional Addons tab. In there you can pay for the service. This is a paid service which we are giving to you at the same cost it is for us. It’s just an optional service for those who want to get automated site speed services.
Not sure this will work on your site? Just contact us first and we can set up your site and see how it does. You can then pay for it after if it works.
You can keep the service for as long as you are a monthly customer. Once you cancel with us, your site will be removed from NitroPack. Since their service stops when you remove the plugin from your site, nothing breaks or happens to your site. It just goes back to what it was before.
Once you pay for the addon service, all you have to do it submit a ticket to ask us to install it. We will do it for free and configure your site. If you need more than 4000 optimizations per month, then we will work with you to figure that out. Each site on our plan gets 4000 optimizations per month on NitroPack.
