3 Ways To Optimize The Speed of Your WordPress Site

by tranglt

Surely, most of you will agree with me that the speed makes the not small contribution to the success of your website.

According to Aberdeen Group – a leading technology-oriented market research company showed that, if the speed of the website decreases only 1 second:

  • The number of views will reduce 11%
  • The clients’ satisfaction will decrease by 16%
  • And lose 7% of conversion

Therefore, apparently, the speed of the website is critical. It not only affects the website’s ranking on Google but also directly relate to your business.

So, here I show you 10 ways of optimizing the website’s speed.

1, Choosing a good web hosting

Speed is the score of a good web host. You can measure exactly how long it takes for your server to respond at the Bitcatcha server speed checker.

In case, if your web’s speed is not perfect, let’s think about your web host. Maybe your hosting plan is not good enough, so some critical metadata is much smaller than your website’s request.

The important data that you need to pay attention to or ask your hosting if your web is slow are:

post_max_size

memory_limit

upload_max_filesize

2. Optimize your images

About the images, you need to pay attention to these three features: size, format and SRC attribute.

2.1 Size

You can use some tools to compress your images. I suggest EWWW Image Optimizer to reduce the image size without much loss of the quality  Or you can use Compress JPEG & PNG Images plugin as an alternative.

2.2 Format

JPEG is the best solution, However, you still can use PNG format as a good choice. Don’t use BMPs or TIFFs format.

2.3. SRC attribute

In case, if you chose the right image size and format, just pay attention to the code of the image.

In HTML, the code of image includes <img src=””>. If the image code doesn’t include the src attribute, the browser will require to navigate to the folder of the page. It leads to an increase in the unnecessary metadata of your host, even the users will see the image error from the frontend.

3. Remove the unnecessary plugins in your website

Sometimes, some counterproductive plugins are activated on your website. Just find and delete them to make your site clean. Doing such a thing surely will improve your website’s speed.

You can use P3- Plugin Performance Profiler plugin to see which plugins are heavily affected your site load time.

More methods will be added in the near future. Just follow our news to get the information.
