Supercharge Your WordPress Blog

If you’ve been looking for a way to tune-up and supercharge your WordPress blog, and God knows we could all use a tune-up every now and then, you’ve come to the right place.

A good friend of mine by the name of John Engle, who is someone I consider to be a guru when it comes to SEO… (and I don’t use that term lightly.) As a matter of fact I’ve come to despise that word, but I really can’t think of a better term to describe John and his knowledge on the subject.  

I first met John through his SEOBlogTips.com site and was blown away by the information and value I found there. To this day I doubt John knows how much insight and knowledge I have gained from him.

Anyway, I was studying on his new business website the other day because that is what you do when you visit one of John’s sites. It’s the equivalent to the hitting the library back in the day before computers! Pretty much anything you want to know about SEO can be found there, especially on his SEOBlogTips site.  I was looking for a way to Supercharge my WordPress Blog and wouldn’t you know it…

He recently wrote an article on the Importance of WordPress Performance and I wanted to share these tips on how you can Supercharge your WordPress Blog.

I am not going to get into great detail here because I want you to visit his blog where you will get all the facts but here are the simple steps John talks about.

4 steps to Supercharge your WordPress Blog!

“1. Reduce Plug-ins and Widgets: Only have the absolute necessary plug-ins and widgets on your site, remove the rest!

2. Too Many Images Reduce Blog Performance: Having too many images, or large images for that matter, on any given page, can decrease the performance of your WordPress Blog by precious loading seconds.

3. Optimize Images for the Web: Make sure that the images you do have on your site are optimized for the Internet, know as image compression. Photoshop is a great image editing program, giving you an option called “Save for the Web”, but due to the expense, not many people own the software.

If you don’t have image editing software, you can use the FREE Online Image Optimizer.

4. Reduce the Number of HTTP Requests:”

One of the biggest take-away’s for me in John’s article was the “Site Speed Analysis” test that you can run for Free with PingDom!

Wow, talk about an analysis… It breaks down everything and I was able to shave off 4 seconds to my load time of my site. If you’re looking to Supercharge your WordPress Blog then this is a must!  I didn’t realize I had so many large images on my blog. I am grateful to John for sharing such valuable information on his site.
