Divi Speed Optimization: before and after

Divi 4.9.10 was updated to Divi 4.10 and, with it, a bunch of new speed optimization.

So, after that, I decided to update one of my sites that I use Divi and check if the results are that good.

Well, check for yourself:


My website was not slow, but wasn’t fast either.

I decided to use it as the test for this Divi Speed update.

Summary of the Before situation

Well, as you can see, the site was not in great shape, but it was usable. GTmetrix was under 2 seconds and, with all green Core Web Vitals results and good results under Performance and Structure.

I didn’t want to touch it because of that. It is an ecommerce my father and brother work on, so I prefer to take the more conservative route here.

Now, the update

After watching this video, I decided to try and update.

Summary of the After situation

It is not the 100/100 they promised, but it is already better. I figure I have some tweaking to do in the back end, but it is already faster and with better grades.

That is the positive side of buying in into a framework being developed for millions of sites: you get the benefit when something like this is launched.

I highly recommend you to take a look at Divi’s website now and see for yourself if you want to create your own site with ease.
