How long do you think a visitor will wait when he / she writes the address of your website and tries to see your site? Here are 5 tips for a quick WordPress site!

So you really have very little time to show users your content and convince them to stay on your website. According to Google, this period of loading of your pages should not exceed 2 seconds!

This is because web pages that open more than 2 seconds later cause visitors to get impatient, leave the site and reduce return rates.

What's more, not only your visitors but your Google ranking are falling victim to this slowness.

Google, which adds Site speed to its ranking algorithm, does not want slow sites to top the search results. That means slow sites have to settle for less traffic.

If you want more traffic, more followers and more earnings for your website, you should convert your WordPress website to a faster website (before any changes, remember to measure the speed of your site and make a backup)!

1st. Choosing The Right Hosting Type
Hosting is the biggest factor that significantly affects the speed of your site.

Hosting is defined as providing the technological infrastructure needed to run your website, which is the brain of the infrastructure mentioned here is the servers where the content of your website is stored.

Quality hosting service is provided with high-hardware servers, so your website can never be faster than your server allows.

The server hosting your site is configured to suit your needs; it is important for the speed, uninterrupted access and security of your website.

WordPress Hosting, one of the hosting options offered by the Hosting companies, means that the server hosting the websites should be optimized in accordance with WordPress.

WordPress is a hosting service that can increase the speed of web sites created with WordPress up to 5 times, so WordPress Hosting is much more efficient than standard shared hosting service. In a nutshell, a low-quality hosting plan can override all your speed-boosting efforts.



2nd ed. Cache Plugin
The cache plug-ins create a copy of the page after the initial installation, and then present this cached version to each subsequent visitor.

Thus, your site's files do not need to be requested and uploaded directly from the server every time. Caching can increase the speed of your WordPress site by up to 2 to 5 times.

WordPress.org you can increase the speed of your pages with Free WordPress cache plugins that you can simply download from. You should also know that using more than one cache plug-in will slow your site down.



3. CDN
If your website's target audience is in different parts of the world, getting CDN service will enable your site to load quickly, regardless of server location.

CDN (content distribution network) is a distributed network that delivers content to your visitors from a location geographically closer to you.

Through CDN, your visitors in Europe can retrieve your site's data from a data center in France, while visitors in the United States can retrieve your data from a data center in Texas.

This allows your visitors to view your website as quickly as possible.

4. Optimizing Images
File sizes of large images negatively affect page load times. If you add a photo on your phone directly to your website, it will slow down your website.

Images on Web pages usually need to be under 200 kb.

Image optimization is the process of compressing the size of a visual without affecting its quality.

Therefore, you need to bring your images to a reasonable size using an image editor before you add them to your site.

This allows you to select the lowest possible JPEG quality. In most cases, we do not understand the quality difference between 100% and 60%, but the file size may be reduced by half or more.

5. Themes and plugins
Poorly coded plug-ins and well-structured, bloated themes with unnecessary features slow down your site.

You should avoid using a lot of add-ons, remove add-ons that you don't really need on your site. Because every time your page displays, even if it is not actively used, add-on codes on your site work causing your site to slow down.
