make wordpress faster

Before you start optimizing your website for speed you should (edit: you must) identify your baseline. It`s really easy to identify your current page loading times. Head over to pingdom and Choose the closest pingdom server and wait until the results are loaded. Pingdom will come up with several helpful information for you.

The absolute time your page needed to load. Does your site need more than 2 seconds? Are you in the mentioned range of acceptable 1-2 seconds? Pingdom will also give you a percentage how many websites (in the world) are slower – and how many are faster. Further down the page you’ll find some helpful tips on improvement for wordpress speed up areas – like expiration settings or minification options (we’ll talk about it later on)

There is an even more technical breakdown of every single piece of your analyzed page (a bit I similar to the developer tools you can plugin to chrome or firefox) Of course you could even measure your personal load times if you like. You should repeat the bottom line assessment at least two or three times –ideally at different times of the day. Note your results down in writing.
