Tips to speed up WordPress website

1.Optimize Images

Image optimization is the very first step to do

The choosing image is the bright way to attract more click rate. What’s the click rate? eye catchy images increase click rate so try to add images if  it possible places.

Type’s of image format

There are plenty of image format’s are available in image editing tools. But choosing right image format is the productive way in our work. So decide and work is very important

  • JPEG
  • JPG
  • PNG
  • TIF
  • GIF
  • BMP
  • EPS

Short out  all, three image format’s play vital role in all marketing area’s

  • JPEG
  • JPG
  • PNG

Let’s briefly discuss about image format’s

JPEG image format (Joint Photographic Expert Group )It’s great for making smaller file size,It’s nice for photograph’s ,It’s effective images more than 256 colors,24-bit color up to 16M colors etc.Our winner is JPEG.Try to save your image format JPEG.It has two file sizes

  • Reduce file size
  • Higher file size

Try to reduce file size less

Simple plugin will reduce images size is WP-Smush It plugin.Our work is simple just search plugins in search box and type wp-smush it plugin.

2.Reduce server response time

Reduce server response time is defined as time between two points. Here am quoting two point is nothing but web browser and server. Alway’s keep your server time less than 200ms (milliseconds) choosing best hosting partner is only way to keep your site high speed. If choose wrong hosting, no way our site load sluggish or very slow.

If server response time exceeds 200ms above. I know your mind voice guys if exceeds 200ms our site speed automatically slow.

How does server response time work? If visitors entering our website our web browser requests the server. The server automatically responds it’s requested.

3.Leverage Browser Caching

Leverage browser caching is nothing but storing files on web browser. Repeated  visitor entering our website downloading all files from the server it takes some time to load. Does It cause site speed slow? It’s not good, we could do all methods to bring our visitors full satisfaction.

The site’s having more file size always choose leverage browser caching method. It’s the best way to increase conversion rate.

How to reduce leverage browser caching?

Here am sharing simple step by step tutorials to increase our page load time higher

New visitor entering our site initially it took more time to consume more files. If we  using leverage browser caching it’s save files in repeat visitor browser. Second time while loading our site within fraction  of second our browser show our site. It helps server to load.  So always choose leverage browser caching. Here am manually tested code on my site it bring’s awesome result in site speed. So I recommend this code to insert in server side. Add this code to top of .htaccess file in server.

<IfModule mod_expires.c>
ExpiresActive On
ExpiresByType image/jpg “access plus 1 year”
ExpiresByType image/jpeg “access plus 1 year”
ExpiresByType image/gif “access plus 1 year”
ExpiresByType image/png “access plus 1 year”
ExpiresByType text/CSS “access plus 1 month”
ExpiresByType application/pdf “access plus 1 month”
ExpiresByType text/x-javascript “access plus 1 month”
ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash “access plus 1 month”
ExpiresByType image/x-icon “access plus 1 year”
ExpiresDefault “access plus 2 days”

4.Enable gZip Compression

Higher file size is the main culprit behind page speed in WordPress. It took more time to load in the web browser. while visitor hit our website it will need some time to load.we could reduce server request file smaller. We should optimize our file size smaller.

Add this code to .htaccess server side

<IfModule mod_deflate.c>
# Compress HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Text, XML and fonts
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/javascript
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/rss+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/vnd.ms-fontobject
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font-opentype
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font-otf
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font-truetype

AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/xml

# Remove browser bugs (only needed for really old browsers)
BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html
BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4.0[678] no-gzip
BrowserMatch bMSIE !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html
Header append Vary User-Agent

kindly save the file and close your .htaccess  file.

5.Choose caching plugins

WordPress having plenty of plugins are available in market place. Our work is very simple don’t want any hard work, just make some analyzes and install Caching plugin is the awesome way to boost more speed.

Improve load time is our ultimate goal. Do you know what is caching ? it’s nothing but store temporary data.

Here am sharing 3 best caching plugins

  • W3 Total cache Cache.
  • WP Super Cache.
  • WP Rocket Cache.

For Free version

I strongly recommended W3 total cache having tremendous features and improving load time higher.

For Paid Version

If you are really interested in buying premium version try WP Rocket cache.
