About Optimocha

What Is Optimocha?

In essence, Optimocha is a “speed optimization service” for websites powered by WordPress. It’s like a superhero for your WordPress website’s speed.

Nowadays, we’ve got tons of speed-up plugins for WordPress, but tweaking them right is the key to a faster site. You’ve got to consider your hosting setup, your site type, themes, plugins, and content. Using them wrong might just slow you down.

Enter Optimocha: We log in, back up your site, and work our magic to make it faster (check below for how we do it). Our goal? Speed up your pages, shrink your page sizes, and turbocharge your server. Plus, your Core Web Vitals metrics (in Google PageSpeed) shoot up.

You might think speed isn’t a big deal, but think about your own web adventures. Aren’t you annoyed when a page takes forever? Your visitors feel the same if your pages are turtles. You could be losing money because of a slow site… but we’ve got you covered. We’ll crank up your speed, your conversions, and make your customers happy!

How Do We Do It?

We start off by creating a “pre-optimization report” of your website speed. We use Google PageSpeed to check your Core Web Vitals metrics, and the whole report tells a lot about your website’s state of performance, and what can we do about it.

Then we connect to your website. The first thing we do after we log in to your website is to take a backup, in case something goes wrong (which is very, very unlikely). We also check your hosting environment to see how well we’re going to get along with the server.

Then, we get to the real work: Using a combination of tools, plugins and our magic (read: our immense know-how), we speed up your website. We compress images, optimize your page sizes, configure server-side & client-side caching, clean up the junk, and more–basically whatever is necessary. Since there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for optimizing every website, we use our expertise to find the perfect solutions to speed up your website. And you’ll read all the actions taken during the job, over email.

After we finish our own report, we get the “post-optimization report” from Google PageSPeed, and compare it with the “pre-report”. So you get three reports before, during and after the job.

Our Motivation

Why do we want your website to open faster?

Well, because we’re passionate about the internet, and we’re all about speed! If you’ve got a blog, we can’t wait to binge-read your posts. If it’s an e-commerce site, we’re eager to open all your products and check them out in a flash. And if it’s a corporate website, we want to devour your About page, explore your portfolio, and contact you right away.

And when I say “we,” I’m talking about the billions who jump online daily, the millions right in your own backyard, and the countless visitors to your site. Everyone craves speed; otherwise, they’re out of there in a heartbeat. Seriously, folks have zero patience for slow websites. They’ll abandon their shopping carts, and if they’re loyal customers, their satisfaction goes out the window.

But that’s not all! Speeding up a website isn’t just about convenience; it’s also about being eco-conscious. It means needing fewer server resources and, ultimately, having a smaller carbon footprint. So, we’re not just about speeding up your website; we’re on a mission to turbocharge the web, one site at a time, starting with yours. With a faster site, you’re on the fast track to more success, happier visitors, and a greener digital footprint!

In the end, it’s a win-win – speed, satisfaction, and sustainability all rolled into one!


As Optimocha, we believe that startup teams has to be as diverse as possible, because somehow it directly affects the success of a startup (look it up). That’s why, from the very beginning, Optimocha pays top dollar to the following seven people to please the startup gods.

Barış Ünver


A pretty nice guy with a pretty nice blazer. He read somewhere that CEOs are like conductors in orchestras, so he bought a conductor’s baton and started poking other team members with it. He’s good with people, though. Get in touch with him on LinkedIn.

Barış Ünver

WordPress Ninja

The Heisenberg of the operation, and the founder of Optimocha. He threatens to leave the company every two months to get a raise, so he’s currently the highest-paid member in the team. Follow him on Twitter.

Barış Ünver

Head of Marketing

Practices voodoo and LinkedIn ads to keep leads flowin’. He’s born in Kocaeli, a small city right next to İstanbul. He hates İstanbul because some kids were mean to him in high school.

Barış Ünver

Data Analyst

Wrangles data and makes sense of it to get new clients and keep existing clients happy. He’s a proud Muslim—not the “kill-everyone-who-opposes-my-opinion” kind, the “practice-kindness-and-promote-peace” kind.

Barış Ünver

Content Editor

Writes kick-ass copy. She wrote more than 100 WordPress tutorials and articles in Tuts+ from 2012 to 2016. (She actually stopped writing there to join the Optimocha team.) Loves to buy indie games on Steam, and not play with any of them.

Barış Ünver

Chief Happiness Officer

Honestly, he doesn’t do much, but knows a guy in the company so he gets paid to do stuff like team trust exercises and throwing birthday parties. He’s the only one in the team with an active gym membership.

Barış Ünver

Barista & Hipster

…because all startups needs a hipster who makes good coffee, right? He’s basically the janitor but says he’s doing the job ironically. We don’t like him very much, but his mom basically funded the whole startup so we have to put up with him.
