Momondo :: Website Performance and UX Optimisation

I was contracted as a consultant to assist Momondo, one of the leading online travel websites, to access and improve the user experience of their PPC, SEO optimised website that was based on WordPress. The majority of the challenges faced were orientated around the high traffic loads that the site was experiencing (in excess of 200,000 visitors per day) and a over-reliant, inefficient use of plugins. I was responsible for porting the site to a staging environment, fine tuning elements of the theme, upgrading and improving plugins performance and creating minified content, optimising caching for pages, the database and objects and making numerous recommendations on improving the site for users. I was also responsible for tailoring the work flow and administration screens to be more company centric.
