- Using images optimizer plugins.
It’s a must when we have a lot of images in our posts. I have use three plugins, WP Smush.it, WP Parallel Loading System, and YS images lazyload (Server Side). It’s really cool.
WP Smush.it is a free WordPress plugins to reduce image file sizes and improve performance using the Smush.it API. Every image you add to a page or post will be automatically run through Smush.it behind the scenes. You don’t have to do anything different.
YSLazyload lazy picture, only loaded after DOM elements finished, and to determine the current window to load and save your bandwidth resources. Since changes in the service side image src attribute, so compatible with all browsers.
WP Parallel Loading System is a WordPress plugin that will enhance the loading efficiency of your Blog. This plugin will boost the loading time of your Blog. The more images you have the more it will improve.
- Using WP-Optimize Database Optimizer.
All bloggers was to know that every time we save a new post or pages, WordPress creates a revision of that post or page. If you edit a post 6 times you might have 5 copy of that post as revisions. Imagine if your post or pages are long and big. WP-Optimize is a WordPress 2.7++ database cleanup and optimization tool. It doesn’t require PhpMyAdmin to optimize your database tables. It allows you to remove post revisions, comments in the spam queue, un-approved comments within few clicks.
- Define image height and width with tags.
Height and width tags tell the browser exactly how large the image will be, so it can load other elements of the page while the image loads. If you do not define the image size, the browser must wait for the image to load before it can load the text.
- Using CSS Sprites
Why it can be reduce sites loading time? CSS Sprites is a way to reduce the number of HTTP requests made for image resources referenced by your site. It get the image once, shift it around and only display parts of it, saves the overhead of having to fetch multiple images.
Try to use CSS Sprite generator to make it for your website.
