In this blog, I will show you how to optimize a WordPress website and increase its performance. WordPress is a CMS built in PHP which is the most popular CMS among all PHP CMS. CMS basically stands for Content Management System which helps us to build a website. Creating a website is so easy with the use of WordPress and one advantage is that WordPress optimization is also so easy. WordPress provides us with plugin functionality. And there are lots of plugins that give us a good result for optimization.
Basically, the following are the main points that are very helpful in optimizing a WordPress website:
It is basically the process of removing WhatsApp in our HTML, CSS and JS file. As your site grows, you will need to add more content and tools to the site, which can slow down the site.
Gzip compression is the process of binding data in our files. It basically collects chunks of data and makes them smaller. This is relevant for web apps and websites because the HTTP protocol includes the ability to send gzip data. This means that when the traveller visits your site, the site files will be smaller and the bandwidth will also be less.
When a user opens your webpage, the entire page or entire page content will be downloaded and also rendered. Through this, the browser will cache for the webpage. And there is also no guarantee that the user will actually see all the downloaded page content.
Lazy loading is that when a user opens your page, only the part that is first visible by the user at a time will load other page content when the user scrolls down to the page that manages cache and bandwidth Emerald will be very useful for
Another important part of optimization is to reduce the request of files i.e. reduce the request of CSS and JS files because when a website loads it requests files to load if there are many files to request. The request will be more than it will take less time.
CDN is the best part of the website. Originally, CDN is primarily for the content delivery network used for application services (such as cloud-based services from Google or Microsoft). The CDN also basically takes our files like CSS and JS images and serves the CDN network which also reduces the load time of that file.
Cache creation is the process of building cache in the user system and serving our files from the cache. It automatically loads faster when files are served directly from the cache and improve website performance.
Use the Autoptimize plugin
These are the main optimization key points if we follow these will obviously improve the performance of our website and the user feels good to read our services. Because there are so many websites on the web, the competition was tough and a user may not have the patience to wait for the website to load if it takes longer then the user will close that window.
And I do a w3 total cache plugin to do all this stuff which helps more to optimize the site as it is all built into options for all these key points.
