    Very informative post.

    Now that google is going to show ‘Not secure’ alert on sites without SSL, using CloudFlare is a no-brainer. Plus it will enable HTTP2, giving a little more speed boost.

    Thanks for the Cloudflare love. Just wanted to chime in and say we aren’t just “similar” to how CDN tools work…we ARE a CDN. But we have a variety of other benefits as well.

    Also, if you are using Cloudflare with a WordPress blog you should really consider using the new WordPress plugin that was just released.

    All good points indeed for site speed optimization for a non-techy blogger or webmaster. I personally don’t recommend to use free CDN as this can sometime cause some problems to the site and additionally GZip compression is a must. And in general less plugins mean faster website.

    sometimes image is the most heavy elements that takes time to load. Images are the basics for most e-commerce and photo sharing sites and must be optimized carefully. I recommended to compress the image with its 30% capacity (if you are using Photoshop). Always remove Exif data as it reduces image size a lot before uploading to WP as we all know a fraction of a seconds matter for site load speed.
