First Time Blogging Improve WordPress Speed

Website loading speed is one of the most important factors today for online businesses, online services, social media and more. If your website loads up very slow the chances are you will loose business and potential members. Your site should load in between 1 and 3 seconds. 3 seconds being the max you should allow for your site to load. Although these numbers are ideal, you will not always achieve that. Some pages will have too many images, social buttons, slideshows, popup windows etc.

The information provided here will help you try to achieve those goals.

Cache Plugins

There are 2 major plugins many know about which help to improve your site speed substantially. I have used both in the past and they do the job, however W3 Total Cache is very challenging to configure. You need to be an expert and know what you are doing or else you will get the famous white screen of death and or other issues. It is still a great cache plugin.

There are other cache plugins that I have started to use on some sites. You might like to read the following URL WordPress Cache Plugins to learn more of other caching plugins I recommend.
