by
Length:MediumLanguages:

Search engines have made it very clear in recent years that website performance (page speed) is an important factor when it comes to ranking websites and web pages in SERPs. Besides that, the loading time of a webpage also affects the user experience so it’s therefore damaging to your website or business on two fronts.

Ways to Improve WordPress Performance

There are all kinds of reasons why your WordPress website might be slow and not performing as well as it should. Here are some reasons you should think about, taken from the Tuts+ course optimizing page load.

 
  • Make sure you’re using the latest version of WordPress.
  • Clean up your WordPress plugins; uninstall any you no longer need.
  • Consider using a cache plugin, like WP Super Cache (by Automattic).
  • Optimize your database tables for PHPMyAdmin.
  • Optimize your content, such as images, so they’re as lightweight as possible.

Super-Fast Page Loading Speed WordPress Themes Available for Download Now

We’ve listed 20 super fast loading WordPress themes, available from Themeforest right now, for download. 

Although the themes we have outlined cannot necessarily use all of the outlined techniques (i.e employing a cache plugin), they do have clean and well-written code, do not send excessive requests and lead by example with optimized images. They give you a solid, fast foundation, but it will be your responsibility to maintain performance in the future!
