What is a good Wordpress banner size?
I'm trying to optimize my Wordpress blog to both look good and load fast. I'm trying to optimize all the images and banners on my blog but don't know what would be a good combination of "Looks Good" and "Loads Quick". In your opinion what is a good Wordpress banner size?
EDIT: I am talking about the actual pixel size and the file size.

I am guessing you mean file size?
No one can answer that. Depends on the image. Type of image, ect.
There are plenty of compression tools and plugins that will do it for you.
Best size is the smallest file sizes with the image still looking good.

If you are talking about the actual size in pixels I don't know what would be the best size because the theme can make a difference. You just don't want to get one that is too small so that it makes the page look bad. Just don't go to big either.
Sorry I don't have an exact size.

Ya it depends on the image and image type. Impossible to answer.
As for actual sizes, common sizes for blogs are 250x250, 300x250, 300x300, 728x90. Featured images are often 600 or 300 wide.

Helpful tip if you know already then that's good.
Have the file size as small as you can, Not too big as it tends to eat the servers and will make the website load slower for the visitors. Most size I tend to use is 728x90 as what google does also.

Banner sizes differ from one wordpress theme to another. Check out the size of you placeholder first so you can decide on the appropriate image size next.

For responsive websites I create all images no wider than 300 pixels wide and in .png format.
For existing membership sites wherein the visitors are my existing clients and I already know know they use large monitors I create all images no wider than 720 pixels wide and also in .png format.

For responsive sites there are four modern devices that visitors use to view a website and all have different screen sizes, but the smallest to optimize in terms of the screen's image width is PHONE Vertical 300 px. Keep in mind any additional space for margins.
PHONE Horizontal | PHONE Vertical | TABLET Horizontal | TABLET Vertical
For large monitors you can use images that are 720 pixels wide without loss of quality.
To keep it simple it is easy to think of it like this:
Responsive: 300 px or smaller
Everything else: 300 px or bigger
