Support » Plugin: Jetpack by WordPress.com » Slowed down my website

  • Name is misleading, as the plugin slowed down my website to a crawl. Not recommended. There are many plugins that can give you the features that you want from this plugin, without sacrificing page loading times.

    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!
