A site’s loading time is one of its most important assets, that's why
a good speed will enhance your visitors’ experience when visting
your site, and will most likely convert them into clients. If this wasn’t
enough reason for you to think about your site’s loading speed,
let me tell you something. Search engines’ (Google, Yahoo, Bing…) results are based in a mix
of different characteristics, one of them being the user experience. In other words: if your site
has a good loading speed, visitors will likely stick there; if they stick there, they are bound to
become your clients. If more people visits you, the search engines will consider you as their
new best friend.
01 Use a fast and clean theme
Picking the right WordPress
theme can make a huge
difference in the speed you see
from your site. Some design
themes have more features than
you will ever need. Choose light,
clean coded design theme and try
to find a balance between the
looks, functionality and speed.
02 Enable caching, mify and CDN
Install a caching plugin, activate
it and you will automatically see
an improvement in your
speed.You also have the option
to enable CDN (Content
Delivery Network) support to
offload static files to fast data
centers around the world.

The bigger your image, the
slower your site will load and
the more server resources you
will use. When saving the image
in your image editor make sure
to resize the image to the exact
dimensions you need it for your
04 Choose the right Web host
People try to save a few dollars
and compromise quality. Invest
in a good web host and the right
hosting plan as your server is
the foundation and the first step
towards having a speedy site.
Also make sure to keep an eye
on the uptime of your server.

technique. It allows you to
confidently use import inside a
CDD file and not worry about what
happens on the user’s end. It will
look through your style.css file and
put any import files into it. This can
make a difference in your site load
time because it makes the file size
06 Update the latest WordPress Version
You should always stay updated
with the latest stable release of
WordPress in order to boost
performance of your site.
07 Optimize your WordPress
To improve the performance of
your WordPress install, make sure
to regularly optimize the database
and remove all the spam, trash and
post revisions. WPOptimize is a
great plugin that helps you do just
that. Also make sure to fight and
eliminate those spam comments by
using my guide. Last but not least
follow this advice to keep your
WordPress safe and secure.
08 Reduce the use of External Websites
Try to avoid relying on external
scripts wheter it is directly or
through the plugin. Some plugins
take a lot of time to load depending
on the server connection. They can
often be the reason for page not
loading properly if you are
