Support » Plugin: Jetpack by WordPress.com » JetPack is the best choice to make it a very slow website.

  • Before activating JetPack: Approximately 2 seconds of loading
    After activating JetPack (only Sharing active plugins): over 7 seconds.
    But not only, Admin side has also become slower.

    I have enabled and disabled JetPack over and over again, the result is the same: with JetPack active the website becomes dramatically slow.

    I lost a lot of time before arriving at the conclusion that the biggest problem for a WordPress site is to activate JetPack.

    Never again will I make the big mistake of installing JetPack, even if Automattic pays me $ 1,000 a month.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Depending on the modules you’ve activated, and the new elements you added to your site thanks to Jetpack and, your theme, and other plugins, that could indeed be expected. For example, if you’ve added Like buttons, Related Posts, a few widgets, and sharing buttons, that will indeed increase your site’s loading time.

    Like with every other plugin, when enabling features, you decide to decide if that feature is worth the performance hit it could bring to your site. In general, any features that use images, or call resources from third-party services (like the sharing buttons or the Facebook and Twitter widgets) will have an effect on your site performance.

    I would consequently recommend that you review the list of features you’ve added to your site and consider removing the things you don’t really need if you ever decide to give Jetpack another try.

    If you find that a specific Jetpack feature appears to slow your site down more than it should, do not hesitate to let me know and I will take a closer look!

    Just activating Jetpack and your website goes really slow.. lol
    With 20 or 40 plugins activated, I never have this problem, but with just jetpack.. waaa… not possible to have a quick site.
    So, the website don’t have a jetpack, just a drag.
