lightweight Website

Having a fast lightweight website is important for better SEO and hence higher Google Search rankings.
It improves your website’s user experience, bounce rate, and conversion rate.

Fast Lightweight Themes

Pick a fast lightweight theme built with only the features you want. Disable all the features that your site doesn’t use. Pick a template that fits your business and loads fast. Keep it up to date.​

Fewer Good Plugins

Most plugins use JavaScript which slows down your site especially for poorly coded plugins. So use only well coded, and well-maintained plugins but still sparingly. Keep them up to date.

Minification

Minify JavaScript, CSS, and HTML files to reduce the file size. This removes all unnecessary whitespace, comments, line-breaks, or characters from the source code for better website speed​.

Eliminate Render-Blocking

Before a browser can display a web page, it needs to parse or render its HTML. If your browser encounters some JavaScript or CSS during this rendering process, it has to stop and execute them. You should eliminate render-blocking resources to optimize your website page speed.

Optimize Images
Server Response Time

Reduce the server response time i.e. time to the first byte because all other requests depend on it. Themes, plugins, and server specifications all contribute to server response time. Use a fast lightweight theme and an optimization plugin. Upgrade your server to optimize your website.

Caching.

Browsers cache CSS, images, JavaScript, etc. So, when a user next time visits your site, the browser does not need to reload the entire page. Set your “expires” header for how long you want the information to be cached to optimize your website page speed.

Dynamic Caching is designed for non-static resources. It prevents unnecessary database queries and processing of each visit. It improves page load speed and the TTFB (time to first byte) of your pages. Object caching improves connections between WordPress and its database. It improves the loading speed of all dynamic pages like checkout pages, dashboards, etc.

Redirects, Gzip, CDN & hTTP/2.

Reduce redirects because redirecting a page (e.g. yourwebsite.com) to another page (e.g. m.yourwebsite.com) increases page load time.

Use Gzip to compress CSS, HTML, and JavaScript files to reduce the file size to optimize your website page speed.

A Content Delivery Networks (CDN) is a network of geographically diverse servers for delivering website content using mirror sites. Users from different parts of the world can access your site faster. Use a CDN if you have visitors worldwide.

HTTP/2 deploys multiplexing for faster data transfer, compression of headers for transferring less data and prioritization for proper page rendering. This hence optimizes your website page speed. HTTP/2 requires SSL/TLS for websites to take advantage of HTTP/2. Be sure to use a web host that supports HTTP/2.

Preconnect, DNS-Prefetch, Preload.

Establishing connections may involve DNS lookups, redirects, and round trips to the final server that handles the user’s request. Most of the time is spent waiting rather than exchanging data. Add <link rel=”preconnect“>, <link rel=”dns-prefetch”> or to <link rel=”preload“> inform the browser that your page intends to establish early connections to important third-party origins.
