How To Speed Up Your WordPress Site

Recently I have been tearing my hair out trying to speed up one of my sites that wasn’t loading for ages. I deactivated every plugin one by one and whilst I was doing that I made a promise to myself – only install plugins which I need.

Strangely as if by magic I had an email from someone at Site Pro News. To be honest I don’t remember signing up for it and it could well have been spam.

Anyhow, there was a link to something I thought said list building but when I got there it was link building. I was just about to close the page when I saw a link to a video about how to optimise your WordPress Blog.

I had a look and you can too at http://videos.sitepronews.com/video/9078/Optimize-your-WordPress-Website-for-FREE.

I only intalled the W3 Total Cache plugin, followed the instructions in the video and my site loaded much quicker.

I had given up somewhat with my Cycling site as the big G had fallen out with it and my visitors had reduced dramatically. Maybe the fact that nobody could get the page to load might have something to do with it aswell.

I am off now to check out the other tips in the video and one in particular about security seems a good place to start. I will let you know how I get on.
