Reduce Page Load Time – WordPress How-to and Tips

Nobody likes a slow website. Performance and speed are crucial when it comes to any website, which is why when you sign up at WP Manager, we do a full review and debug of your website, then optimise it to improve overall performance and reduce page load time.

If you are looking to do a little DIY to improve your site performance here are some key tips to assist you on your optimising journey.

  1. Analyse what is causing your site to run slowly with website tools such as GTMetrix and Pingdom. (Don’t rely heavily on Google Page Speed)
  2. Remove any unused plugins and custom post types (if bundled with your Theme Framework) Try also not to keep redundant themes installed.
  3. Remember to optimise your database, even if you delete plugins, redundant tables can still be present in the database.
  4. Get a good Caching plugin such as WP Rocket or Fastest Cache – ensure you use a server that offers managed hosting or Lightspeed caching.
  5. Minify and compress unnecessary  above-the-fold scripts on your website to improve front end page speed and load times.
