Speed Up your WordPress Blog for your Visitors

As a blog owner, it’s important to make the user-experience as friendly as possible if you want to turn your occasional visitors into regular visitors. This is one of the reasons why you probably want your pages to load as fast as possible. In a high-speed internet age, nobody likes waiting for a page to load. Visitors expect to get the information they are seeking, and to get it fast.

Speed Up your WordPress Blog for Search Engines

Another factor why you want to speed up your blog is because Google has advised that speed is becoming a factor in SEO. That’s true, a website that loads faster can potentially achieve better rankings in the SERP (Search Engine Result Page), and everybody knows that better rankings means more traffic, more traffic equals more readers, more readers equals more revenue potential.

Among other things, Google is advising webmasters to put some extra attention to deferred JavaScript loading, optimizing the order of CSS and scripts, enabling compression, minifying CSS & JS, specifying expiration for objects, combining JS & CSS where possible.
