Popular WordPress Plugins That Helps To Improve Loading Time.

  • W3 Total Cache – Supports all type of web cache right from browser, database, object as well as CSS/JavaScript script minifications. I am using it here in BlashO.
  • WP Super Cache – An alternative to W3TC, this plugin creates a static HTML version of every page in your blog and serves that quickly without any server-side processings.
  • WP Smush – A must have WordPress plugin that reduces image size and hence your pages can load faster.
  • WP Minify – This plugin quickly combines all the CSS into a single file and also, all the JavaScript files into single file. It also compresses and minifies the file. Hence improves blog loading time. If you are using W3TC then WP Minify is not required.
  • EWWW Image Optimizer – This is my favorite and using it here in BlashO. A perfect alternative for WP Smush.It supports different image file formats.
  • Plugin Performance Profiler (P3) – A must have WordPress plugin that profiles all the active plugins in your blog. It measures the page performance and finds out what are all the plugins are slowing down your blog – developed by Godaddy.
  • WP Booster CDN Client – WordPress plugin to enable WPBooster CDN. If you are looking to use a CDN better go for CloudFlare (it’s free) and you can easily integrate CloudFlare with W3 Total Cache.
