How to Speed up your Wordpress website

A very slow website gives a very poor user experience. With a faster WordPress website, you can get higher conversion rates, lower bounce rates and more views resulting from quick search engine indexing!

Today, I’m going to share a few ways to improve your site speed and hopefully help you get some more visibility on search after you’ve implemented them.
While many people rightfully focus on the design and content of a website, how quickly your website loads is more important. I’ll tell you why- and you may not agree with me, and that’s fine.
  1. There are so many options. If you snooze, you lose. Once your website loads slowly, your visitor will quickly open another website.
  2. Google does not like slow websites.
and so on. Before i shift to another topic (lol), let me stick to this lane. How can you speed up your WordPress website(s)?
1. Use a better Hosting Provider
There are many silly hosting providers who cost almost nothing, but their service is very poor. I used to rely on cheap shared hosting companies and it worked fine, but I have learned that if you mean serious business, you won’t want your website to hang just because 2k people are on your blog at the same time.
I recommend using Namecheap Hosting, because it is a blend of affordable and fast. I have used other Hosting providers and Namecheap really stands out. If you love yourself, avoid many of these Nigerian hosting providers!
If your hosting is slow, there is a high chance that your website is going to be very slow.
2. Use Page Caching
You may already know about the free caching plugins like W3 Total Cache and WP Super Cache, but I am pretty sure you might not really know about WP-Rocket. WP-Rocket is super easy to use and only takes 1-2 minutes to install and configure the plugin to your website.
In the next newsletter, I will be giving you more tips. Try and implement these ones within the next 24 hours. If you are stuck somewhere, feel free to tweet at me!
Conclusion
Having a fast website is very important. If your WordPress website is slow, it means you have to take important steps to make it faster. This will take some time, but it is definitely worth it.
If you have some dollars to spare and you want me to make your site faster, you can get my Fiverr service or send me a DM and I will make your site faster for few dollars.
Anddddd I love responses. Feel free to reply to this email with any questions that you might have. See you next time!
