How To Speed Up WordPress Site Loading

By Ray Alexander

Why is my WordPress site slow? If you happen to ask yourself that question, don't underestimate the problem. To speed up WordPress site loading is an indispensable task for SEO purposes. Two reasons. If your website is loading too slow (1) your visitors are unlikely to stay and (2) Google will penalise your site, hence no chance of getting ranked high. So you need to act NOW.

  1. Plugins can definitely make a difference in site speed – some much more than others. I just recently removed the JetPack plugin from my sites, and although I loved the tools it provided, it slowed my sites down quite a bit. I think because for the site stats feature to work, JetPack required going to WordPress with every page load. It’s unfortunate, but I chose page speed over the visitor stats. Now I just use Google Analytics for that information. Have you ever used JetPack?

    1. Hi Matthew, thanks for the valued information – no I haven’t used JetPack and I was just checking it on the site (Jetpack by it’s a shame it slows down the site speed especially when it’s developed by… Or probably because it’s developed by .com, not It’s handier if you can check the visitor stats within your editor though, such as SumoMe (which I don’t currently use either…)

      Thanks again for sharing your thoughts.

  2. Hello Ray,

    Thanks for helping out with the speed of the website. With millions of people using WordPress for building their website, this sure can come in handy. I’ve tried a few of these tips on here. Plus I believe that images and scaling your images has a major impact on website speed.

    I too use Wealthy Affiliate, and recommend it to everyone beginning to advanced in the internet marketing business. The owner of WA helped me out with my website speed one day. Within 2 hours we had my website loading at 2 seconds. Oppose to the 15 seconds it was giving me before Kyle helped me with it. It turned out to be my header image which was too large that was causing the delay.

    Thanks again,

    1. Hi Jonathan, thanks for your comment. It’s great to know that Kyle the owner himself has helped you out with fixing the website speed. Although it’s hardly a surprise, in our community there’s always someone who has a technical problem, seeks for advice, and within minutes other members will give their hands.

      Thanks again for sharing your experience, I appreciate it!
