How To Speed Up Your WordPress Blogs
There are a few things that you can implement to speed up your WordPress or web page:
3. Use a light weight theme and makes sure you use CSS sprites and not big background images etc. If you do use lots of images you can use a WordPress plugin which will reduce the file size of a image without affect the quality of the image. This plugin can be found here.
4. Try using free content delivery networks such as Cloudflare it is quick and easy to setup and will protect your website from Malware and other nasty attacks.
5. Add the below code to your theme’s functions.php place it at the top to remove unwanted stuff from your header file.
remove_action( ‘wp_head’, ‘feed_links_extra’, 3 ); remove_action( ‘wp_head’, ‘feed_links’, 2 ); remove_action( ‘wp_head’, ‘rsd_link’); remove_action( ‘wp_head’, ‘wlwmanifest_link’); remove_action( ‘wp_head’, ‘index_rel_link’); remove_action( ‘wp_head’, ‘parent_post_rel_link_wp_head’, 10, 0); remove_action( ‘wp_head’, ‘adjacent_posts_rel_link_wp_head’, 10, 0); remove_action( ‘wp_head’, ‘wp_generator’); remove_action( ‘wp_head’, ‘wp_shortlink_wp_head’, 10, 0 ); remove_action( ‘wp_head’, ‘start_post_rel_link’);
