I’m sure you’ve thought it before “I sure hope that I don’t spill this coffee into my laptop.”

may very well be asking yourself why should anyone worry about trying this. You will find a number of reasons:

stay on your website. When your site is slow to load they are going to most likely leave.

Understanding The Problem
The best way to solve any problem is to understand it first. So let’s look at the factors that are keeping your WordPress site from operating at peak performance.
1. Web Server – The machine that hosts your WordPress site is a major factor in its overall
performance. Most commercial hosts have acceptable servers, but beware of bargain
hosts – often they are no bargain at all!
2. WordPress Configuration – WordPress uses a “one size fits all” set of configuration
settings that can be fine tuned for your installation.
3. Site Design – Your theme and the way you lay out your pages can have a major effect
on the site load time.
4. Database – WordPress uses a MySQL database to store content and configuration
information. Poor performance here can lead to an unresponsive or sluggish website.
5. Graphics – Bloated graphics files and overuse of images are probably the most common
cause of poor performance on any website, and are thus the easiest areas to gain
6. Scripts & Plugins – The same scripts and Plugins that give your site all of its advanced
features can also be a major performance bottleneck. In fact the most common cause of
WordPress server slowdown is having too many plugins. However there are also Plugins
that will improve your sites performance!
7. Bandwidth – The speed of the connection between the user and the website is the
biggest factor in determining how your site performs for the end user. Unfortunately it’s
also one of the factors over which you have the least control.
8. Users Computer – The speed of the user’s computer can also be a major element in the
equation. Although you obviously can’t do anything about this it is possible to control
how their web browser caches items, thus affecting overall performance.
9. Distance – Yes the distance between the user and the web server can factor in,
especially if a satellite transmission is required to make the link. Hosting a site in Europe
for a US audience is not a great idea, even if you get a great deal on hosting. The delays
in transmission will add up, making for a poor user experience.
As you can see there are a myriad of items that can affect how fast your site responds.
We can tweak the ones we have control over so that everything runs at peak
