16 Ultimate Ways To Speed Up Your WordPress Website – Page 7
A server can only handle a certain number of requests at a given time, so trimming down the number of items or off-loading content to a second server can dramatically improve performance. For example, if you are going to have a post with several images embedded in it, consider uploading those to an image sharing site like Flickr and then embedding them in your page. That way, when visitors come to your site the images are being served up by Flickr’s servers instead of yours.
The same thing applies to embedding of videos. Upload them to YouTube or any other video hosting site and then use their embedding function to play back the video from their servers within your page. Always look for an external partner where you can upload your content and use their servers to absorb the load from within your page.
Thanks for reading this far, I know it was a long article. I want to recap that you need to make a full backup of your website before any attempts at editing or implementing these fixes. This means not just your content but your database and theme files. Not all the above fixes will be needed to increase your page speed. I advise reading the entire list and trying one easy fix before working your way thru all the fixes.
I still recommend your selection of a web host be your primary choice of increasing speed. Your host has a large impact on the speed of your WordPress website. Personally I use StableHost as my Web Host and I use the Stable Shared hosting package. You can use the Promo Code ROMAN for 40% off if you want to try them. Go for a month with who ever you choose to feel them out. Your host has a large impact on the speed of your WordPress website. If the service & performance is there you will be set, if not just go elsewhere.
Any errors needing to be corrected or suggestions please feel free to contact me. I would love to post some before/after screenshots of your website page speed after you use these fixes. Just send them my way. Again thanks for visiting.
