Fix these, and you’ll have a fast loading website:

  1. Plugins (and WordPress core) loads scripts and styles onto all pages of your site, even when they only need to be present on a single page.
  2. Excessively large files (like images) are being loaded on the page – resulting in slow load times. Compress these files to speed things up.
  3. Bad web hosting providers don’t deliver your page to the visitor quickly – resulting in slow load times even for a lightweight page.In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to fix these common problems which slow down your website.

And you won’t need to install any caching plugins – they may change the letter grade you get but it is rare they will actually stop your site from being slow.

The tutorial contains 4 primary steps:

  1. How to identify and eliminating bloat loaded by WordPress core and plugins
  2. How to identify images which should be compressed and compress them.
  3. How to eliminate unneeded font files from being loaded.
