I'm going to share 5 tips and tricks on how to make your Wordpress Blog or Website to load faster and therefore get a better score from Google increasing its ranking potential. As we all already know, website's speed is a ranking factor for Google Search.
My solution is pretty simple and direct, I won't hide between the lines:
The Host - cheap hosting is cheap for a reason. Search for hosts that offer a built-in Wordpress caching as well as a CDN.
The Theme - If you don't have the money for a specially built theme, just for you, go with what Wordpress already offers for free. “Thesis" is incredibly fast and light, you can build around it. Don't waste money on a 60 dollars theme that's bigger than an elephant.
The images - optimize them, don't upload full resolution ones. This one is very important, don't ignore it.
The homepage - this is where most of your users will end up, make it clean and fast, you don't want them to bounce just because it takes a few second to load every crappy feature in your homepage. So don't show too many posts here, don't include widgets and have "read more" buttons.
Keep Wordpress up to date. Don't ignore CMS updates
