5 Tips to Optimize your WordPress Website

WordPress is the preferred CMS to host websites and store content for millions of people around the globe. Here is a list of tips that can help you to optimize your WordPress website.


Choose a good hosting provider

Choosing a good hosting provider is essential for speed and reliability. If the servers are continuously down or the provider does not support good speed then the website can not load efficiently, no matter how hard you try. Always go for optimized WordPress hosting because it helps in for over all performance of the website.


Delete Unnecessary Plugins and Addons

While WordPress plugins are extremely useful and they add great functionality to the website with little hassle however many times people end up adding too many plugins which then stay idle for a long period of time. So make sure to delete useless plugins which are not being used so that they do not take up the site load time and slows it down.


Use a Lighter Theme

Do not use a theme that is very heavy on graphics and media, unless it is necessary for your business. WordPress has thousands of great themes available. As you are spoiled for choice in this area better to make the decision wisely and choose a light weight theme which fulfils your requirements too.


Use Caching to Minimize Server Load

Enable Caching to make sure that there is a minimum load on the server. It is essential to enable caching because whenever there is a call to WordPress servers, instead of utilising entire resources, there should be some saved resources that can speed up the load time.


Optimize Images and Videos

Content without images and graphic media becomes really bland. Do use these media but in a limited amount. No need to overindulge in it. Also whenever you are using these media make sure you use some software to optimize it accordingly.
