How to optimize my blog to increase its loading speed?

This is a question that most bloggers ask themselves, who know the important role that the loading time of a blog plays in its positioning on the search engines.

I wrote two articles on the subject:

In this article, I just wanted to group the plugins mentioned in the two articles above.

Here are 4 plugins that will allow you to optimize your blog as much as possible in order to speed up its loading.

Easily create your website with Elementor

Elementor allows you to easily create any website design with a professional look. Stop paying expensive for what you can do yourself. [Free]

1. Use the WordPress plugin W3 Total Cache
Now that you have reduced the number of plugins you use, it's time to add a new list: W3 Total Cache. W3 Total Cache is a complete plugin but which nevertheless remains "relatively" simple to handle. We install, we activate, and then we configure. W3 Total Cache Improve the user experience of your site by improving the performance of your server, caching all aspects of your site and reducing the download time of your blog.

2. Optimize images on your blog
Most bloggers don't think about optimizing their blog images, yet this is a very effective way to increase your blog's load speed. Many plugins can help you optimize your images ... personally, I recommend the plugin WP Smush.it

This is a WordPress plugin that offers an API that automatically optimizes all your images.

3. Optimize your database
One of the first things a blogger needs to do to increase the loading speed of his blog is to optimize his blog's database and remove article revisions. I found 2514 on my blog this morning. You can use phpmyadmin to clean the database if you are familiar with PHP, otherwise I recommend the plugin WP-Optimize who will do all this work for you.

This plugin will allow you to delete (with one click) all unnecessary tables, article revisions and unwanted comments from your database. This will reduce the size of the latter, increasing at the same time its loading time.

4. Use P3 plugin (Plugin Performance Profiler)
P3 Performance Profiler Plugin is an extension that will test and report on your plugins: number of active extensions, loading time of all extensions, number of SQL queries, graphics for each extension.

It is repeated everywhere, but it is never futile to put a ladle: too many plugins kills the plugin and the speed of the blog! The strength of WordPress is the ability to be customized to stick to your needs, this through plugins, among others. But there is the other side of the coin: The performance of the site.

My blog Rame. And yes, the logical consequence of a beautiful overweight, the massive presence of plugins, for everything and especially anything. When I happen to work on sites for troubleshooting, it is not unusual for me to find 2 or 3 plugins enabled and all of which have the same function. As much to say that level performance, it's a little bronx.
