alone, either. Few years back, Google stated that website speed is one of the
crucial factors while determining search engine rankings for a website.
Have you ever thought the
importance, the website
speed has?

You might have heard this before,
that a website has a few seconds to
capture visitors' attention and to
convince them to hang around. If
you've been running a website
online, you might want to have a nice layout, maximum visualisation with lots of
images and al the good stuff required for retaining visitor on the site.
But even if you have fantastic website with maximum visualisation, if your page
loads slow, visitors leave your site before they could even get a chance to see
your fantastic design & bril iant concept which convert them into customers.
How to check your website speed?

websites currently online. I am also
one of the crazy fans of this great
blogging platform and you can
experience this into action on my blog www.valueapartments.co.uk, but the only
negative point is that it's usual y slow than most of the CMS platform.
Without proper speed optimisation, your wordpress website could end up as a
stagnant site that may lose your customers or subscribers due to the heavy load
time.
Here are some great steps which can help you to improve the speed of your
Wordpress site.
1- Use a Proper Web Hosting Service - The best place to start is to check for
web hosting service as this is the place where website is itself located. Here, I do
not recommend going for any costly or dedicated web hosting service, Al you just
need to make sure that you are using the best one having unlimited bandwidth,
disk space and higher uptime.
2- Pick your Theme Wisely - After ensuring an ideal hosting service, the next
step is picking up the right Wordpress theme that can a huge difference in your
website speed. Here, I recommend choosing a responsive and beautiful design for
your site which would work on al platforms (windows, tablets & smartphones).
Additionally, you can check for other features as well, like:-

Responsive design for al platform
3- Manage Plugins - Wordpress Plugins have its equal pros & cons. We cannot
deny the fact that plugins extend and enhance the functionality of this platform but
at the same time they add an overhead and slows the website. Therefore, I
suggest keeping minimum number of plugins, always choosing your plugins
careful y and only using the ones which are so required.
4- Delete Spam Comments & Post Revisions - Keeping hundreds of spam
comments and unnecessary post revision in your database slows the speed of
your site. Therefore, deleting spam comments and post revisions can be a great
step towards better user experience for your site.
5- Image Optimization - Images are a great way to visualize one's website but on
a separate note, this fact cannot be ignored that images always add an overhead
on the database and slows the website performance. Here, we need to make sure
what images are required for the site and in what resolution/dimension and then
images can be compressed. Also, we can give Image Alt tags & titles to make them
more user & search engines friendly.
For this, there are numerous plugins (both free & paid) available on Wordpress.
Although, I personal y use and recommend WP Smush.it, this is one of the best
and free plugin available and I didn't get any negative point against this.

network (CDN) is a high-performance
col ection of servers that helps
delivering your website content across the globe. Ideal y, a CDN host al the static
files of your site and let visitors download them more faster by serving the files on
the servers, nearest to their location.
You can get a free CDN from your hosting provider or you can set this up yourself
using various plugins or hosting provider across the globe.
