Have you ever wondered why your WordPress website loaded slowly? Surely it will be a number of reasons that led to this situation, because WordPress doesn't keep the original when we changed more on it.

Here's 10 Simple Steps to Accelerate your WordPress website!

1/ Test loading speed
The first thing is you have to test the speed of accessing website with professional testing tools. Here, I would introduce Google's Page Speed ​​Tool and Tools Pingdom.

Unlike conventional test yourself by accessing the website, these tools also give results for the analysis necessary to help you know the problem may require your hands. A small hint: If you view your website does not exceed 70, you will need optimization. Results over 70/100, we can accept temporarily .

2/ Backup data
You will wonder why websites need to slow down the backup? Actually, it would be the thing you need to do to speed up the work site, if damaged due to various reasons, will still get you back at work yet to not lose data or the structure of your website a pity.

You can easily create a backup copy of hosting management tools, technical support requirements (if you are not familiar with this problem too) or use the WordPress plugin backup available for download.

3/ Remove and update the plugin
WordPress is famous for the strong support of a large community of programmers and amateur professional with dozens of additional plugins, but you also need to assess the actual plugin is needed to help your website load faster. An ideal number is not more than 7 plugin installed and ready.

In most cases, you should set the trigger mode not even need to remove it from the WordPress plugin to make sure it does not become a part of the download page.

The plugin updated to version are also needed to help eliminate bugs on the old versions.

4/ Remove spam comments
Comment spam is a big problem if you don't have useful anti-spam plugin. If you have time, please take advantage delete comment spam or other worthless comments, it helps increase free space for your database and improve a little loading for posts .

5/ Change Interface if possible
Choose a suitable theme for your WordPress is not only beautiful but more improvisations. You will be interested in the interface with neat when the page loads, such as speed, less including components such as image size header (top), logo, javascripts or CSS.

In addition, multiple themes supported good SEO instead you have to install the SEO plugin.

6/ Find a better hosting

If you think your fine website with advice on, try considering hosting service provider you bring up a really good service. Compare other sites (if you know) on the server to find the average speed access at the server you are using.

Also to keep in mind when your website has huge traffic, you will need to upgrade to a higher hosting services, it is often VPS (Virtual Servers) or Dedicated Hosting (server separately) to be able to use better hardware resources.

7/ Update WordPress
Whenever a new WordPress updates, please take the time to back up data and updated to the new version. Typically WordPress will update including optimal access speed and you would not want to miss it anywhere.

The update of WordPress was not as hard as before, you can easily upgrade with 1-click auto-stop!

8/ Actively limited image size
The article must be very bored WordPress without illustrations. Uploaded image size, you should have the appropriate limits. Normally you should use JPG images with tails, as it's smallest size.

It is easier if you combine the following elements CDN to store images in a server hosting is out now.

9/ Using CDN
CDN no stranger to many with us. I'm not sure that necessarily need to be explained how the CDN. Using CDN will help you save bandwidth and reduce the load on the server running your WordPress. Try to find a CloudFlare hosting support (it's free when it's integrated into your WordPress), for example, will not be bad to try it.

10/ Using the plugin cache
Cache is always the key to success optimize acceleration. You can use W3 Total Cache but I recommend WP Super Cache for more popular because it is stable and do not swell your data in an extraordinary way.

With a number of steps to speed up your WordPress blog showed above, I hope you will apply it successfully and help your website to load better.
