stockvault-speed-meter98594   Hi guys I have some great tech tips which will make your site faster. As most of the blogger use WordPress as their CMS (Content Management System) that’s why these trick are specially designed for those sites, which are on WordPress. But before starting let’s answer the most basic question here.

Why the load time of the site should be low ?

According to a theory when someone landed to your site, you have very few seconds to get his attention and hold him around. That’s why the speed of a site is necessary. More to that the site speed also make an impact on the SEO. As you may see the first 10 website of a search on Google have a very low page loading time. So let’s start reducing the site speed.

Top 6 tricks to decrease your page load time:

Before using any of the below steps first measure your site speed from the Pingdom, then after each steps again measure your site speed that its decreases or not.

Use a good Caching Plugin

If you’ve got static pictures, CSS and Javascript on your web site that seldom amendment, browser aspect caching will facilitate create your web site snappier. Caching involves storing components of your site in order that they solely ought to be loaded once rather than on every occasion a user visits your site. Caching is particularly useful for your come guests, in addition as others UN agency visit many pages of your web site. W3 Total Cache could be a fashionable caching plugin for WordPress utilized by sites like Mashable (their CTO created W3TC), Smashing Magazine, internet Designer Depot and WPBeginner. The plugin guarantees a ten times improvement in overall web site performance once totally (and properly) organized. WP Super Cache could be a additional easy various and you don’t ought to be a server skilled to line it up.

Using The Content Delivery Networks

Content delivery networks place your WordPress content nearer to the top users. Content delivery networks (CDNs) will speed up your slow WordPress web site, because your content will be delivered directly from the third party fast servers. CDNs work by offloading your static content (images, css, js) to a distribution network. If you examine a contemporary electronic computer, the HTML or PHP page is simply one request out of many ones. By decreasing these requests, you can hold your server from these tasks. CDNs offer a globally distributed network that has different performance advantages. Web Performance improvement (WPO) services transcend easy CDN optimizations. These services offer caching, image improvement, CSS diminution and different techniques

to spice up performance. I’ve used the WP Total Cache with CloudFlare and it is giving me a good result. CDNs and Cloudflare primarily profit extremely trafficked sites.

Choosing a clear and fast theme

WordPress abounds with theme choices, each free and paid. To make sure that you simply have a subject matter that performs well, certify that it’s not heavily obsessed on pictures. Whereas pictures look nice, they additionally abate loading. Another factor to seem for could be a theme with a CSS primarily based style. Finally, use Pingdom or Webpage take a look at to ascertain however well the themes perform.

Optimize information Tables

Optimizing your information tables is like defragging your pc or dynamic  the oil in your automobile – it’ll facilitate liberate area and keep your information running swimmingly. You can optimize your information tables manually exploitation phpMyAdmin or with a plugin. WP-DBManager permits you to optimize, repair, backup and restore your information. There’s additionally WP-Optimize, another information cleanup and improvement tool. This plugin additionally permits you to take away post revisions, comments within the spam queue, un-approved comments and things in trash.

Cut Down on hypertext transfer protocol Requests

Every time somebody visits a page on your website, the corresponding files should be sent to person’s browser, as well as pictures, CSS files and Javascript library references. Therefore if you’ve got a hypertext markup language file, 2 CSS files, 5 Javascript files and eight pictures, that’s a complete of sixteen files that require to be loaded. By reducing the quantity of objects in your site’s pages, you’ll be able to minimize the quantity of hypertext transfer protocol requests that area unit needed to render a page, dashing up load times. One way to try and do this is often by simplifying the planning of your website, and mixing files like scripts and CSS. The change section in W3 Total Cache permits you to feature your CSS and Javascript files therefore you’ll be able to simply mix them into one file.

Optimize Your pictures

Pictures are really necessary for a website, and they may be the reason of the page load speed. So we should Optimize our images to make their size smaller and keeping the quality almost same. For that purpose I will suggest Wp-Smush It, It is complete solution for the Images size problem. This is a good plugin that may perform basic lossless (no loss of image quality) optimizations as you transfer footage into the “Media” folder of WordPress. It even offers a “Bulk Smush.it” command to optimize existing pictures. This can be a true straightforward thanks to keep it up high of your pictures for journal posts and new content side.

So that’s all for now, please reply in the comments that it helps you or not ?

    Hi Rohit, I found lots of WP sites that load slowly because the images not optimized. The site holds very large graphics or the graphics are resized in the HTML code – which doesn’t do anything to decrease page load time. Besides many sites use jpeg images that are saved at 100% quality rather than carefully making a compression ratio that decreases size without affecting the look. Anyway thanks for a nice share.

    Nice and very informative post

    WordPress is great content management system. For the people who are not good at coding and want to own a site wordPress is the best tool they can use. Site loading time is one important factor that can directly effect the website performance and ranking.

    It is surely important as it is also a factor of SEO. For new visitors the page load time is more applicable , as they do not have enough patience for the site to load slowly. They might immediately go back and try for another one. The above post explains some ways on how to reduce the website loading time . Out of the six ways mentioned above i think choosing a simple theme, having a good caching plugin and optimizing of the pictures are very important.

    Great post and I hope this post would help many people especially beginners .

    Thank you for sharing.

    1. Avoid Use of Flash or Swish Based Animation: Any animations coming from these two application should be totally avoided. As they always have a large size which take some times before downloading. Instead, you should use animation with J Query and if you don’t know how to use J Query then give your site a very professional outlook without animation

    Let me ask this question, what do you mean by information table?

    W3C Total is a nice wordpress plugin. CloudFlare is a free CDN – Content delivery network you can use. You forget about Google Page Speed Test Tool.

    Hey, I am using WPSmush.it For images – image quality isn’t reduced much but I can see some string thing attached to my images url which should be removed according to page speed tools. Another issue is that image size needs to be defined ike height-width. How can I improve that? Is it due to my theme or something? Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the tip. All the while I am using WP-Supercache plugin for my wordpress and it does helps a bit! Still, it’s not as fast as some other site out there, perhaps it’s the problem of my server. It’s also my first time knowing CDN, which I guess I’ll have to look into right now. One tips that is similar to CDN is I host my photos on my Flickr and external image hosting site, instead of on my server so it will reduce the workload from the server. =)

    Cheers.

    According to me optimizing images improves your page load times drastically. I noticed that many of the bloggers use unoptimized images, that can be further compressed 70%. For this I recommend tools like Radical Image Optimizer and JpegMini.

    I found that just using CloudFlare on my website configured it with the W3 Total Cache was the best. It improved my load time faster than what i was getting with W3 Total Cache alone and it improved my overall load time drastically. Also using the photon service through JetPack greatly improved my load time. So Jetpack Photon and Cloudflare and your site will be running much faster
    Scott Hartley recently posted..Microsoft Security Essentials Not Up To The Task Of Protecting Your PCMy Profile

  48. Yes, you are right, CDN doesn’t come free with web hosting but there are some alternative like you can use Photon CDN (comes with Jetpack Plugin and it use WordPress.com to host photo) and/or google pagespeed cdn service to make your site faster.

    I use nearly all these methods on my website, had some issues with WP-Smush It at one point, but it is great for saving those valuable bytes when putting pictures on your website.

    I would also recommend not using pictures bigger than you actually need, there is no point have a 2,000 pixel photograph, when it’s only going to be displayed at a lower size, if you only want it 640 pixels, then make sure you upload that size. It all helps ;)

    i do want to add one thing more, and that is optimizing pictures dramatically improve the site performance.

  60. Even with all the attention in the world to the points in this post, if the WordPress site doesn’t use optimized images, it will load slowly. I notice this particular problem on many sites. They use incredibly large graphics, or the graphics are resized in the html code–which doesn’t do anything to reduce load time. Then there are the jpegs that are saved at 100% quality instead of carefully selecting a compression ratio that reduces size without affecting appearance.

    I use the following website jpeg-optimizer.com to compress images and to resize them – its great at reducing the size of banner ads, through to images for your website. It allows you to specify the compression – eg the higher the compression the lower the quality.The other thing – W3 Total Cache has a couple of cool options. eg minify which reduces the size of JS and CSS code. But it also has CloudFlare built into it – so 1 less plugins draining resources from your website.

    Hey Rohit,
    First of all thanks for sharing such a nice post. I am WordPress lover and one of my site loads in less than 3 seconds. Here is the list of plugins which i use on my blog.
    W3 total cache – This is the best plugin i ever used. It minify the site and loads faster.
    Supercache – This is also good plugin but not the best.
    minify html tags and java scripts to make blog load faster. Compress images on blog because images are the main problem in loading. If you have large size of images on blog post than your blog will take time to load.
    Keep sharing post like this, Thanks.

    We can also minify our CSS and HTML to make the site code a big smaller. It should make the site load a bug faster. Although in my experience, it doesn’t do much than remove some meager milliseconds from the load times. Anyway, great post.

    Optimizing your images can play a big big role. We have to make sure that the resolution which we want to display on our blog must be same in original as well. If the image is big but we try to make it small with html, it will lead to huge loading time.

    Hey Rohit,
    Brilliant post about to make the ‘WordPress site faster’. I totally agree with you but again do you have any idea how we can optimize the scripts (specially javascripts) which make the website a bit heavy. The fast loading website is definitely beneficial for search engine rankings.

  84. Amit Ahuja says:

    That’s a truly informative post that has changed some prospects of my blogging. I will be certainly doing few tweaks to make the site more faster and hence more visible.

    I use WP Super Cache plugin and it has decreased the loading speed of my page to a good extent. However since I use a magazine theme, the site is still not loading that fast. I am thinking to install Splash theme. Hope it works.

    Like other people mentioned, I would suggest to go with the caching which makes your site faster too. There is some plugins available to make the cache enabled for your wordpress site. It might cause some trouble in development but it works smooth once you finalized your website and launch it.

    Nice article, I also use some of tools that are described in this post. W3 total cache plugin is very important for wordpress blog as it auto minify CSS and Java script. It has also an important feature of CDN too. Max CDN is very helpful to increase site speed.

    For optimization of image Smush.it is very useful option to optimize the image automatically.

  100. What is “information tables”? WP has no information tables. Probably you mean options table (wp_options)…

    I think most of bloggers comment just because to create backlinks. But the scope of creating backlinks via commenting is falling with very high rate. Today, social networking sharing has succeeded blog commenting. Google is now preferring those webpages which have more social sharing. So it is better to earn fans instead of creating backlinks.

  103. Good article!
    You listed the most important facts to improve a website.
    One point I`m missing are plugins.
    If you are using 20 plugins your website header may end up loading 35 single js and css files. To fix this issue coding understandings are required and it takes time to adjust the theme+plugin accordingly.

    Also caching plugins require deep knowledge of server technology. It can be setup easily but using the correct and best settings is a different topic. The default w3tc setup gave me 85\100 google insight rank. My admin spent half a day to optimize all caching and cdn settings. Insight speed went up to 93\100

    Sitespeed is an ongoing process but worth it!
