Fix the site structure
Follow the advice google provides on the page speed test.
CDN helps a lot if you have images on your website. Like say one blog post with 5 images and that page gets served a lot. In that case CDN hosting those images can speed things up.
Interesting that @spyindiaanu lists caching as the first optimisation method. Caching is the very last operation after you have done everything else. In fact caching isn’t even needed on many site if the have been proberly constructed. All caching does in many cases is hide other problems. Best to be avoided.
Additionally, one could purchase an SSL and Yoast SEO plugin.
An SSL won’t speed up the site and Yoast may be popular but it’s one of the worse SEO plugins.
What do you recommend as a better SEO Plugin?
Seo Plugin done but didn't imporve
An SEO plugin won’t improve anything. You have to do the research and update the content. It’s slow, boring and laborious. Changes can take months to take effect.
All in One SEO is one of the better plugins. But all you really need is the ability to edit the page titles and descriptions. I’ve got a plugin that does that if you want it.
Neither of those things will help with speed.
fisicx gave some good advice in his original reply to speed up your site. You can also get some more optimization tips from this article on our blog:
If you follow the advice of Google about page speed test and use the minimal code, light theme and limited plugins in your website than you can easily improve the WordPress site speed.
1. Run Your Website Through GTmetrix
2. Install The W3 Total Cache Plugin
3. Install MaxCDN With W3 Total Cache
4. Delete Unused Plugins + Find Slow Plugins With P3
5. Optimize Images
6. Use A Faster WordPress Theme
No, don’t do this
okay ! can you tell why ?
A speed check is a good start. But you then need to fix theme and plugins, optimise content, strip out everything that slows down the site (animations for example) and look at your hosting.
Only once everything is optimised you might consider a caching plugin. But if you have properly optimised the site you won’t need a caching plugin.
with autoptimize and wp rocket plugins, you can increase your website traffic if you know the setting.
Check your website for CSS or js codes and send them to external .css and .js files. Also, check how many HTTP requests your domain does while loading the page. You should try to minimize as many HTTP requests as well which can help you to load your website faster.
