    I was able to solve all optimization problem when I hosted my wordpress blog on a managed wordpress hosting provider. Few hosting companies offers an affordable managed wordpress. Just take the time to search. Most of those sites do not usually appear on the 1st page of search engine result page but that doesn’t mean they are inferior to the more popular managed wordpress providers.

    Hosting on a SSD based server can shave off several seconds from the loading time.

    I have a WordPress site with many large database queries that was very slow. When I moved to an all-SSD as well as nginx server (rather than Apache) it cut the home page load time by 68%. A shout out to Flywheel hosting (I hope it’s okay to mention them here.) I am now in the process of moving another slow site over. However, although this can be an easy means of increasing load times, you should still go through the steps mentioned in Neill’s article here – especially cleaning up CSS files. (I know mine are in dire need of some TLC.)

    I agree that there are some plugins which help to optimise the page and get it to load faster. But by adding these plugins, they are adding too much code in the page and due to this, code/text ratio is reduced which is bad for seo.

    One of the best ways to improve the WordPress performance is to switch your hosting to SSD VPS hosting. I switch to SSD-powered VPS hosting and that greatly improved my site’s performance. It loads much faster and it provides much better user experience. My host is https://rosehosting.com so if you are looking to improve the performance of your WordPress site by switching your host, you can check their offer. Anyway, your tips helped me a lot.
