How To Speed Up WordPress Website Loading Time, slower than other sites?

Top Ways To Speed Up Your WordPress Website Loading Time
Is your website loading slower than other sites?
You should care if your website is loading slow. Users don’t like to wait for long. Users will go somewhere else if your website is slow.
Here are some best ways that help you to boost your WordPress website.

1 Plugins :
We like to always add something new to our site. So we simply go to the plugins and install some of them also if they are not required.
We are lazy too. If we want to add Google analytics or Alexa verification code to our website we look for a plugin. Actually, its too easy. It doesn’t require any plugin. We install large number of plugins to our website and think why my site is slow?
Look, don’t install too many plugins. Only install plugins which you really required. Also deactivate or delete plugins which you are not using.

2 Theme :
Themes with large number of scripts & images can slow down your site. Choose right theme for your WordPress website. Test your site with different themes and test time to load.

3 Cache :
A caching plugin can make a big difference to your WordPress website loading time. If you are really concerned about your website speed then using a cache plugin is best way to give it a try. There are large number of caching plugins available. You can give a try to W3 Total Cache.

4 Use LazyLoad Plugin :
Lazy load images to improve page load times. LazyLoad loads an image when it’s visible in the viewport. Images are loaded only when visible to the user. It improves page load times and server bandwidth.

5 HomePage :
Your homepage should load quickly, because visitors land to your homepage most often.
Show experts instead of full posts
Limit the number of posts on FrontPage
Use minimum widgets

6 Optimize Database :
You should optimize your WordPress database sometimes. You can use WP-Optimize. It allows you to clean up your WordPress database and optimize it without phpMyAdmin .It removes post revisions, comments in the spam queue, un-approved comments within few clicks.
