Frequently Asked Questions

Some people have questions about Rigor Optimization. Here are a few, go nuts.

What sort of recommendations will Rigor Optimization make?

Rigor Optimization will audit your website for 300+ performance best practices, looking at images, CDN configuration issues, compression, video, CSS, fonts, JavaScript, backend server response issues, caching, WordPress errors, HTTP errors, SSL errors, and so much more.

Can I just run Rigor Optimization once, fix everything, then cancel?

Technically, yes. But you really wouldn’t want to.

Maintaining performance is not a one-time activity. It requires ongoing analysis over time.

The more code that is shipped, the more people you have publishing content, and the more changes are made to the website, the more you are at risk for deploying something that negatively impacts your speed and performance. In addition, you might accidentally undo a previously applied best practice.

Just like functional testing, running Optimization scans against your website on a regular cadence is necessary to prevent performance degradation over time.

What type of organizations find the most value in Rigor Optimization?

Customers that find a lot of value in Optimization tend to share the following in common:

  • Companies with high volume transactional websites, especially ones that generate revenue
  • Teams that don’t have time or bandwidth to manage performance improvements manually
  • Companies that see value in user experience
  • Organizations that publish new content to websites regularly
  • Companies on a mission to drive alignment among siloed teams (Dev, Ops, UX).
  • Marketing agencies looking to drive web performance value to clients
  • Companies managing hundreds of pages, domains and assets that change frequently
  • Companies that need to validate their performance initiatives are driving performance gains

How is Rigor Optimization priced?
