Speed up your site
So lately my website has been loading slow. A fellow friend and blogger told me about W3 Total Cache which is designed to speed up your website there are many options included to speed up your website including Cloudflare. I have recently set up cloudflare and I so far I am seeing improvement. I haven't touched some of the settings yet as I'm still new to this plugin but it's very helpful so far so I would recommend using it.

Yeah, I have seen that using cloudflare speeds up your site. Webicy webmaster forum was slow before but now they are very fast, you know why? They are using cloudflare.

I used before the cloudflare system, but i had some issues with them and i quit their services because when i was trying to access my website i was getting an issue like "this website is offline" and other website on same webhost was working. Also some friends told me they lost a lot of visitors because of antispam method. Anyway the speed of website is improved when you use the cloudflare system. as a improvement for wordpress i can tell jetpack it is a good plugin. It has many options, i reccomend jetpack comments option which lowered the spam on my website almost 100%, subscriptions which allow your blog readers to subscribe to your new content and comments, photon which cache all your pictures from your website and serve them from wordpress.com cdns, publicize which auto publish your new posts on your facebook fan page and your twitter and contact form which allow your readers to contact you via email.

Very nice I also use Jetpack as well and love the auto publish feature to twitter. I had some issues with Cloudflare earlier with the DNS records so I removed them and tried contacting my host to figure out how to properly set it up.

The number one rule for me is to optimize my images! Then only install the necessary plugins and if you don't use them delete them. Then I finally setup W3 total cache, but remember to check with your hosting provider what settings to use!

To speed up your site first optimize your PC.Make less usage of ram as much as possible, and I have recently set up cloudflare, which speed ups our site.

True that w3 total cache plugin is good for speeding up WP sites.

Using - SMUSH.IT - is also a suggestion too. You want to shrink and condense image files too.

If W3 isn't working out, I would recommend WP Super cache. Simple to set up and I use it for all of my sites.

Website speed is critical. A slow website will negatively impact your ranking and user experience. Page load speed has even become a factor ranking your site.
Fortunately, to speed up the page loading process is not difficult, the following ways will help you accelerate the website:
Get measurements about your website
First, you need to know how useful your website is. Open a tool called GTMetrix and run through this tool. It will tell you the speed information of your current site so that you know which to improve.
In general, some server-side errors can cause slow performance. Therefore, choosing the right hosting environment is very important. For the best WordPress performance, I recommend hosting packages on this forum to use for your blog.
Take advantage of CDN
A CDN will help you speed up your site by storing multiple versions of your site on multiple servers around the world. So when visitors go to your site, they will get the version closest to where they visit. To find a free CDN solution, you can integrate your site with CDN like Cloudflare.
Use Caching Plugin
Caching plugins will create static HTML site files, instead of using PHP files that are typically used to run WordPress. It will significantly reduce the number of requests to the server from the user's browser and hence will speed up the page load.
Some of the most popular WordPress caching plugins are W3 Total Cache and WP Super Cache.
Optimize your images or videos
If you are uploading photos to your site, then you need to optimize them to lighten the site down.
To optimize the image, follow these steps:
- Reduce file size by optimizing images through tools like TinyPNG.
- Resize the image to the right size before uploading.
- Install image optimization plugin such as WP Smush.
