Autoptimize vs Wp Rocket: Who Fix Core Web Vitals Better?

Updated on May 19, 2023, by

Wp Rocket might be worth the price for you if you’re improving Core Web Vitals, especially LCP, as Autoptimize charges for the Critical CSS feature($5/mo). 

WP Rocket has quite a lot more features than Autoptimize Pro, including Remove Unused CSS and New Delay Unused Javascript. The new Delay JS feature makes it easier for non-developers to optimize their websites without causing errors.

Wp Rocket also has a friendly database optimization feature that allows removing junk database tables and comments within a single click.

Autoptimize has other features on its Pro version, available at $79/year, but even that it doesn’t compare to WP Rocket. At $59/year Wp Rocket might be a better choice.
