Ever since we launched, we’re always getting queries on how we optimize our Elementor website.
Although we do try our best to “minify” our JS and CSS files and compress our images using TinyPNG, even using Cloudflare CDN (Content Delivery Network), we don’t really do anything special.
Elementor doesn’t really appear to affect. Based on a comparative analysis on various WordPress Page Builders, Elementor got a B (89) performance grade and a 489ms load time (which is considered faster than 97% of tested websites).

But these data from various pagespeed tester websites SEO in its entirety, right?
Remember, SEO is vast, roughly composed of:
- Content optimization
- UX design
And the lists goes on.
In our case here at WpBuilt, did Elementor helped us in terms of SEO?
Obviously, Elementor did. But in what aspect?
Elementor helped us on the content marketing aspect of WpBuilt, by making content creation easier. And I think that’s exactly what Elementor is built for:
Making content creation easier for everybody.
Sure, other page builders like Divi or Beaver Builder are there, or even site builders like Webflow and Wix.
But they have their own pros and cons and as someone that has tried all of the above tools, Elementor is better and worked best for us.
