Speed your Site
As i explained you that why speed is important, So now it time of speed our site. Only 5 thing will increase your site score form 65 to 99. Fews days ago i was tested my site score that time i am using wordpress 4.1 default theme Twenty Fifteen which has designed for blogging but this theme loading speed is very slow. So that i was searched about how i will speed my site then i got 5 thing by which i can do this …. So now i am explaining you about these 5 things. Let start
compress your website
When you compress a file on your computer as a ZIP file, the total size of the file is reduced, making it both easier and faster to send to someone. Gzip works in exactly the same way but with your Web page files.
Once installed, Gzip automatically compresses your website’s files as ZIP files, saving bandwidth and speeding up page-loading times. When a user visits your website, their browser will automatically unzip the files and show their contents. This method of transmitting content from the server to the browser is far more efficient and saves a lot of time
While some plugins will add Gzip to your website with the click of a button, installing it manually is actually very simple. Open your
.htaccessfile (found in the root directory on your server), and add the following code to it:
Once you’ve added this snippet of code to
.htaccess, test whether Gzip is working on your website by running Check Gzip Compression.
Choose the Good theme
A Website will attract user by there design/theme, but the theme is heavy and its css is not minify then it will take so much time during loading. So choose good theme and for that i recommended to Frank theme . Frank is a open source fast wodpress theme ..
CDN (Content Delivery Network)
Content is third very important stuff of any website. If your content delivery service isn’t good then it will down your website speed 45% . So i recommend to you to use CDN service for example cloudflare, Google drive these are open source best CDN for ever website …
TURN OFF PINGBACKS AND TRACKBACKS
Pingbacks and trackbacks are methods used by WordPress to alert other blogs that your posts link to. While sometimes interesting, they can be a drain on page speed and are usually better turned off. You can turn them off under the “Discussion” tab in “Settings.”
Now mobile Internet usage is overtaken desktop usage. Users now expect websites to be lightening fast, and developers who don’t comply will ultimately lose out to developers who invest in delivering a great experience. 🙂 😀
