How To Speed Up WordPress Blog

I will try to explain how do we create a blog based on wordpress more quickly when someone has access to our wordpress

Here are ways to speed up loading wordpress blog

1. Choose Good Hosting

Choose the hosting with high vigilance. Do not be tempted by the package offered and the price is given. If in doubt, make sure there is a money back guarantee.

2. Sprite Image

Use Sprite Image to shrink the number of HTTP requests when opening a blog. I’ll catch up if response good tutorial

3. Cache Plugin

Use the Cache Plugin to fully optimize your blog. The cache plugin that i’m recommend is:

* WP Super Cache
* W3 Total Cache
* Hyper Cache

It is recommended to use the W3 Total Cache for best results.

Optional:
It would be wonderful if your hosting provides MMCache or accelerator like APC or eAccelerator.

How to check? access request to the phpinfo hosting. Some hostingan already provides access to look directly into the phpinfo.

4. Minify and Combine

CSS and JS that has been in minify and combine to create a blog to be faster because of an HTTP request to call a function that is already on the decrease to a maximum of one connection request for each CSS and JS that in optimizing.

This function is included into the W3 Total Cache + with the ability to gzip static files (excluding the Image, Video, Audio yes, because that’s already compressed).

5. Use a CDN

This stage requires additional money, but the velocity obtained would be balanced with spending. CDN cheapest currently come from MaxCDN, do not hesitate to try it, although he does not have distribution points in Asia.

Or for cheap alternatives, use the own-subdomains CDN, tutorial catch up again if a good response

To integrate CDN services to the blog can use the W3 Total Cache.

6. Avoid Not Important Feature

I often see a lot of bloggers who installed the tracking service to excess. Google Analytics, Sitemeter, Woopra, Clicky all combined into one so slow blog loading access. Select one or two depending on the taste aja.

Also avoid service Pay-per-Post, which requires to put the script on the blog. I really do not like because one of the service provider requesting 8 HTTP REQUEST (SocialSpark example), which of course, will slow the rate of blogs.

The commonly seen is the installation of WordPress with widgets is not important. An example is the Weather Forecast Widget, etc. time.

One more thing, use only one service re-tweet function on the blog. I never saw a blog that uses services as well as 3 re-tweet, plus, the blogger also add a Digg button + Delicious and Stumble Upon. And this happens over and over on every front page post. Imagine the number of requests that must be done by the blog.

7. Optimize Database

No need technical experience to do this, just use the plugin WP-Optimize the spiritual Rabin. I advised not to optimize the database too often. One time in a month or two months is enough.

8. Leverage Browser Caching

This is needed to maximize performance on Google PageSpeed blog. For now, Mangmer advised not to set the cache for too long because the future of WordPress and plugins are always doing updates.

To do this, the thing to do is do a little editing via FTP software to access your account. I recommend FileZilla for this.

Please ask the respective hosting provider if you do not know how to access it or use FTP Client.

If it can access your account via FTP, please find the file named. Htaccess. Edit the file with any editor (MangMer hobby still use Notepad + +). Find an empty spot and enter the following syntax.

# BEGIN Cache Expiry
Header set Cache-Control "max-age = 3086"
# END Cache Expiry

9. Optimizing Images

Squire can mengoptimaslisasi agan pictures before upload using some great tools nan sweet. There is a RIOT and also OptiPNG/pngout to type file.PNG agan that will make the image smaller in terms of size.
