1. Select the right WordPress Hosting

The main reason for how fast a WordPress website is loading is because of web hosting. If our site is hosted here and its response time is not fast then how can the website load fast.

If you want to focus on the speed of your WordPress website, then use only those which have WordPress Hosting.. such as Bluehost , Cloudways , Hostgator or WPX (HindiMeHelp is currently hosted on WPX.)

It is necessary to use image in blog post, or it is also said that one image is equal to 1000 words.. to use image should also be done..

But if the image we are using in the post is not properly optimized then the loading time of the site becomes very slow.

To optimize the image, first of all make the dimensions of the image according to your blog design. After that compress the size of the image.

You will get the information about how to compress online image size here. Along with this, there are also plugins in WordPress with the help of which the image can be compressed.

*Even if you use a plugin to compress images, make sure to compress them before uploading so that you don't use up too much space on your hosting.

Whenever we take hosting, where is its server located, or when a user opens it from anywhere in the world, it takes time to transfer the data, the solution to this is CDN.

CDN means Content Delivery Network, in which if we use CDM for our website, then with the help of CDM, the file of our website is distributed all over the world. If the user opens the website from anywhere in the world, then the nearest Data from the server is loaded into the browser.

You will get the information about what is the best CDN for WordPress on HMH. Along with this, I will suggest you that if you want to improve your website then you will not have any problem in making a small investment without even thinking about it. Be sure to add CDN to your website.

5. Always keep WordPress site updated

You must be aware that if there is any update in any thing then it is its improvement version, meaning it is better than before.. so whenever you get update of WordPress then you must update it..

Keeping your website up-to-date will benefit your speed, along with WordPress security will also improve if you keep it updated.

To update your WordPress site, you have to go to the Dashboard, there you will find which WordPress version your website is on.

If you do not want to manually update WordPress, you can also turn on auto update, so that whenever a new update comes, it will be updated automatically.

You can also turn on auto update in your plugin. Keep this in mind, if any plugin is not trusted then do not turn on its auto update.

6. Fast Loading Theme use 

To design your WordPress site well, you will have to use a different theme. But you should also know that if you use too many design elements, it will take time for the website to load.

Keep the website with minimal design which loads fast or the user does not face any problem in accessing the website.

Jese Genesis Theme is a fast loading theme which is also installed on HMH. Studio Press is also a fast loading theme.

7. Use less custom fonts in the website

Whatever content is there on the website, it is simple that you want it to be good or easy to view or read. But also keep in mind that if you use too many custom fonts, the loading time of the website will increase before all the files are loaded. Hence it is suggested that 1-2 font types should be used. .

If you are using any Google font, then its file will be loaded every time, so you will host that font on your website.. which will reduce the server request and the website will load fast.

8. Deactivate Plugin which you are not using

We use a lot of plugins to increase the functionality of WordPress, in this case we end up installing a lot of plugins which are not used much.

The more plugins you use, the more will be loaded on the server.. The solution to this is that you go to WordPress dashboard or look into plugins and see which plugins you need or deactivate all the others.

If there is any plugin which you will never need in future then you can also delete it.. The extra file which is created by the plugin on the server will be deleted.

9. Use Fast WordPress Plugin

If you use any plugin in WordPress, then keep this thing in mind that due to that plugin, the loading time of the website will not increase or decrease.

If there is any such plugin which has not been updated for a long time, then it may not work properly in the updated WordPress version. Therefore, whenever you install any plugin in WordPress, compare it with other plugins related to it. . After that decide which plugin you want to install.

Whenever you install any plugin, check the loading time of your website before installing or even after installing, so that you will get a clear idea of ​​how much difference your plugin has made in the loading time.

10. Correct Render-Blocking Javascript or CSS

Whenever the website is opened, many scripts or files are loaded in it, there are some scripts which are not needed in starting.. It means that the most important thing is that the content of the website is loaded, after that the image and then ads. or the remaining things are loaded..

So that whatever is useful to the user is loaded in the beginning so that the user does not get troubled.

Such plugins are also available in WordPress with the help of which we can set which script is loaded first or which after.

If you want to fix all this easily or quickly then you can use WP Rocket plugin.

11. WordPress Database Optimize

The next way to increase the speed of the website is to optimize the database of the website.

As the website becomes old, we install or remove many themes or plugins, some files remain in the database which we no longer need and it becomes necessary for us to delete them. So there is no more load on the database.

There are many plugins available to manage the database in WordPress, you can optimize the database by using any plugin.

For example you can use WP-Sweep plugin.

12. Direct Video or Audio files ko WordPress me upload na kare

To write a new article, it is necessary that we add as many media content as possible so that the user can get better information.

For example, in a new post, along with the graphics image, we should also add video or audio. But here it is important to keep in mind that we should not upload the video or audio file directly in WordPress.

We can use any third party website to host the video, like Youtube is the best way.. We can upload the video on Youtube and embed the video in the post.

13. Long Article Multiple Page

Whenever we write a post, our main objective is that whatever information is there should be written in detail so that the user also likes our post or the user also likes it because he also gets all the information in detail at one place. hai.

To split a WordPress post into multiple pages, you simply have to add Page Break Block to the post.

If you use WordPress Classic Editor then you can use <!–nextpage–> tag.

14. Comment section ko Divide kare multi page me

If your blog is as popular as HMH, you will get a lot of comments on your blog, which is the same thing for any blog. But if there are a lot of comments, the page takes time to load.

If there are too many comments, you can set in your WordPress settings how many comments to show on your post. Normally, you keep it at 50 comments.

15. Instead of showing the full post, its part should be shown on the home page.

When we post, by default the entire post is visible on the home page.. But what happens is that many posts are loaded simultaneously which increases the loading time.

In WordPress we also get the option to show the entire post or a small part of the starting post.

Simply go to WordPress setting and go to Reading . or then For each post in a feed, select Include Summary .

16. Run Backup Plugin on Low Traffic
