Know 10 Easy Tricks to Increase WordPress Speeding!
WordPress is a very popular platform for blogging. Currently most bloggers use WordPress for professional blogging. To bring good traffic to the WordPress-based site, the site’s aesthetic design and SEO are important as well as the site’s loading speed plays an important role in attracting visitors. Because when a visitor first visits your site, it is very important to draw his attention in a few seconds or the visitor will not stay for a long time on your site and bounce to another site. Site’s visitor is not bounce only. The page load speed of the site is very important for Google Search Rank. So if you are not aware of the loading speed of the site today, you will also be losing access to the site, as well as the long-term benefits you get through SEO of the site.
At least 10 simple tricks are shared by following which you can increase the speed of your WordPress site:
- Select the best host: Choosing the best host for WordPress site is very important. Many people use a shared host for their wordpress site, due to limited bandwidth, the site is down when traffic is high on the site. Therefore, to increase the speed of the site, the shared host should be avoided.
- Choose a solid frame or theme: You might be surprised to hear that WordPress’s default themes, especially in Twenty Ten or Twenty Eleven frames, load the site a little bit faster because they are light frameworks.
- Useful Cash Plugins: WordPress plugins work fairly well, but cache plugins work most, especially the W3 Total Cache plugin works much better in reducing load time of pages. WP.org has many free plugins that are a lot easier to use.
- Use the content delivery network or CDN: Content delivery network or CDN is a type of third party system through which the site maintains the static files which in most cases increase the loading time of the site.
- Optimize the images: If the size of the site is more than the size of the page loading speed is reduced. The name of Smush.it is a site of Yahoo, which reduces the size of the image by keeping the image’s original value. Also there is a free plug-in named WP-SmushIt which automatically optimizes the image of the site.
- Optimize Site Homepage: People usually land more than the home page, therefore it is extremely important to optimize the home page to reduce site loading speed. Home page optimization can be done in a number of ways:
- Excerpt instead of showing the full post in the home page.
- Posting more than 5-7 posts on home page is not acceptable.
- Do not use unnecessary sharing widgets.
- Removal of unnecessary plugins.
- Keep the homepages minimal, because readers will come to read the text on your blog, your blog will not come for thousands of widgets.
In general, the focus on a clean and main theme is not only to look good on the blog, but also to increase the loading speed of the site.
- Optimize WordPress database: To optimize the WordPress database, I know the WP-Optimize plugin is much better. Also the WP-DB Manager plugin works well. Basically this plugin keeps the date scheduling for optimizing the database.
- Disabling hotlinking and writing content: Typically this problem arises only when other sites link directly to your site via their article image and load the server. So, if your site creates custom images regularly, it is possible to reduce the loading speed of the site.
- Avoid more than post draft: When we write a post, if we take a break in the middle of the writing or after the end of the post, drafting the post for the revision. But if the post has finished publishing after the completion of the writing, as a draft, the site will reduce loading speed. In this case, the Revision Control plugin works well to control the post draft.
- Add LazyLoad for the image: LazyLoad is a type of process that loads the image of the post only when the visitor scrolls down the post or posts the first time in the site load. LazyLoad process basically does not load the image of all the posts so the site’s loading speed increases. You can use the jQuery Image Lazy Load plugin to automate this task.
