    Very good article, with one omission. You do not mention anything about permalinks and the potential for overhead when they are mis-configured.

    There is a good discussion here:

    Using a good theme and deactivating unnecessary plugins helps too.

    I’ve started building more complex WP sites recently – and they’ve begun to slow down. This post is a godsend – and enough in itself to get mt to subscribe to your RSS feed.

    Thank you.

    HI Galea,

    Does the Akismet plugin increase database size? Well, in your very best way, for the optimization.
    Thanks
