You may have noticed that most my webpage are loading bit faster. Here is what I did:
a) CSS code moved to its own file and included CSS at the top
d) Turn on Apache gzip/mod_deflate compression
e) Turn on WordPress caching
f) Turn on php script caching (Iâ€™m using eAccelerator)
g) Tweak MySQL for optimization. Turn on query cache and other settings.
h) If possible switch to lighttpd or use squid / lighttpd as caching server for old good Apache.
If you have tons of cash to burn (assuming that your web app demands performance):
- Consider using CDN (Content Delivery Network) such as Akamai or SAVVIS.
- Server load balancing
However there are some external JS script snippets such as Google Adsense which slows down loading of a webpage. In few months I may roll out a new template and I will try to fix this issue :)
I’m interested to know what other people’s experiences with web page optimization. Feel free to share your tips.
