WordPress is an extremely popular content management system (CMS) that powers approximately 40% of all websites globally. However, one of the most common issues faced by website owners is slow page loading times, which can adversely affect user experience and even harm your search engine rankings.

Thankfully, there are several methods to improve your WordPress website’s page speed score. This article will guide you through the process of achieving a 90% page speed score in WordPress.


Step 1: Evaluate Your Site’s Current Speed

It is critical to understand your site’s current speed before beginning the optimization process. You can use tools such as Google PageSpeed Insights or GTmetrix to analyze your site’s performance and obtain recommendations for improvement.

While using these tools, pay attention to these metrics:

These metrics will provide you with an understanding of your site’s weak areas and which areas to focus on to improve.

Step 2: Optimize Your Images

Images are frequently the most significant files on a web page and can significantly reduce loading times. To optimize your images, follow these tips:

Before uploading images to your site, resize them to the proper dimensions.

Compress your images using tools like TinyPNG or ShortPixel.

Use the appropriate file format – JPEGs for photographs and PNGs for graphics with transparency.


Step 3: Minimize HTTP Requests

Each element on your web page, such as images, scripts, and stylesheets, requires a separate HTTP request to load, which can slow down your site. To minimize HTTP requests, do the following:

Remove unnecessary plugins, scripts, and stylesheets from your site.

Use a plugin like WP Super Minify or W3 Total Cache to combine multiple scripts and stylesheets into a single file.

Use a content delivery network (CDN) to distribute your content across multiple servers worldwide.


Step 4: Enable Caching

Caching saves a copy of your web page on the user’s device, allowing it to load faster on the next visit. To enable caching, use plugins such as WP Super Cache or W3 Total Cache.


Step 5: Optimize Your Database

Over time, your WordPress database can accumulate unnecessary data, which can slow down your site. To optimize your database, use plugins such as WP-Optimize or WP Sweep.


Step 6: Use a Fast WordPress Theme

Your WordPress theme can also affect your site’s performance. Select a lightweight, fast-loading theme and avoid themes with excessive features that you don’t require.


Step 7: Use Managed WordPress Hosting


A fast and dependable hosting service is critical for a high-performing WordPress site. Managed WordPress hosting providers offer optimized servers specifically designed for WordPress.
