Here are few steps to optimize your WordPress -

  1. Choose A Good Web Host- You can think of optimizing your WordPress site only after you surely know that it’s not your host that’s slowing down your site. Recently, I’ve been optimizing a site which was hosted on GoDaddy, which is, of course, one of the most horrible hosts out there that put thousands of sites on a single shared server
  2. Use A Fast Theme/Framework- You need to start with a fast and well-coded WordPress theme or framework. If you choose a theme packed with lots of additional features that you don’t need, it’ll negatively impact your site performance.
  3. Install A Caching Plugin- The second most effective way (the first being choosing a good web host) to improve your site’s load times is to install a caching plugin. As soon as you install a plugin like W3 Total Cache or WP Super Cache, you’ll be able to tell that your site loads faster.
  4. Try a CDN to Speed Up WordPress- Offloading the static resources of your site, like images, scripts, css files, can speed up your site. if you use a CDN, your primary server will have less load to handle and thus will deliver significantly better performance while serving the rest of your site.
  5. Install Well-coded Plugins- There are literally tons of plugins available for WordPress. That doesn’t mean all of them are well-coded. You should always install plugins that are well optimized for the latest version of WordPress which don’t slow your site down.
  6. Perform Routine Maintenance on Your Plugins- Plugin maintenance is very important for WordPress sites. If you don’t keep all your plugins and WordPress itself updated, chances are that your site will get hacked.
  7. Optimize Your Database- You can optimize your WordPress MySQL database directly from PHPMyAdmin, or by using a plugin like WP-Optimize or WP-DBManager. These plugins are capable of deleting all your pending spam comments, trashed posts, auto-saved drafts, post revisions to name a few.
  8. Optimize Uploaded Images- reduce the size of the image and then upload the images without messing with their quality. Yahoo’s http://Smush.it is your ally in this case. It is able to losslessly reduce image sizes.
  9. Replace PHP with HTML Wherever Possible in Your Code -Plain and simple HTML is a lot faster to process for web servers than PHP. If you have a preliminary knowledge about both PHP and HTML, you can replace a few instances of PHP in your site’s code (in themes or plugins) with plain HTML.
  10. Delete Old Post Revisions- Do you really need 10s of revisions of your old posts that have already been published a long time ago? You probably don’t.
  11. Reduce Spam – Speed up WordPress- Spam comments take up significant space in your database. You should set up the pre-installed Akismet plugin properly to catch those comments and prevent them from going live on your site
