Next Page Caching is a plug and play WordPress caching plugin for preloading and caching next post or page your users are about to visit.
In addition, the plugin also has the ability to preload first post, featured images, critical files and theme’s stylesheet for faster page loading.
How Much Speed Benefits Will This Bring?
You can probably expect a loading time decrease to the next page anywhere from 100ms to 500ms depending on the situation.
However, the benefits with this plugin is less on the page loading time, but it’s more on the page interactivity time – the next page will feel faster since the critical parts prioritized during loading and the visitor can interact with the page sooner. This is opposed to the visitor waiting on a white screen while waiting for the page, featured image, or Google Fonts to finish loading.
Since we’re essentially loading parts of the next page within the current page, normal speed testing tools like YSlow, Pingdom Tools or GTMetrix will not show much difference – those only test the speed of the current page you’re at. What you need is to test the speed from transitioning between one page to the next.
You can open an incognito window, disable caching and check the network tab while navigating through your site.
How to use it:
Just install and activate the Next Page Caching in your Plugins page and the plugin will take care of the rest.
