Tips I follow to speed up WordPress

Here are the tips I now follow, based on the infographic above:

  • Keep the number of plugins to a minimum. I try to keep to 10 or less.
  • Make images as small as possible. The Hueman theme uses a lot of featured images, and I’ve removed much of the code that shows them. I also use jpegreducer.com to get the images I do use as small as possible.
  • Limit post revisions to 3. Check!
  • Keep the database clean. Check!
  • Keep the homepage light. Check!
  • Use caching. Check!
