It’s time to get yourself a CDN to speed your blog

CDN can improve your blog speed by 200%. And how it works? It helps deliver’s your blog contents to your readers based on the geographic location of the user.

Many premiums CDN are out there but if you do not have the money to go for a premium CDN, you can equally get a free CDN that can do pretty much the same as premium.

Would you like to know how to create your very own CDN using your local host? You can read the post here to know how to.

Trust me, using a CDN will surely speed up your blog 3x the previous speed…

Install a cache plugin to help your blog run fast

Yes, a cache plugin can help your blog load faster than it already is.

How a cache plugin works: It helps store your blog’s data on your reader’s web browser so future requests for your blog can be served faster.

What’s the best cache plugin to use? There are many WordPress cache plugins out there, but one of the cache plugin I’ll recommend you use is W3 Total cache.

W3 total cache might be hard to set up, but put your worries at rest because I have written a post on how to set up W3 total cache.

Always clean your database to improve your blog speed

Believe it or not, your database also plays a big role in the speed of your blog.

Are you running a slow blog? Cleaning and repairing your Database might just be a great idea. But how can you clean or repair your database with no skill? Simply download and install WP-optimize to help take care of your blog database.

Or if you are that type of blogger that don’t want another plugin to your plugins, you can easily follow the below tutorial to learn how you clean your database manually.

Make sure you don’t use much third-party advert on your blog…

One other thing that makes your blog run slow is simply because of the third-party ads you’re running on your blog.

If you are using Google AdSense, Infolinks to monetize your blog, your blog will load slowly, why? Because those codes are JavaScript and JavaScript’s slows down your blog server.

I am not telling you not to use a third-party ad network that uses JavaScript to serve ads, but do use it to its minimal so you won’t scare your readers away 😉


There are still more ways to speed your blog/website, but the above ways are ways even a non-techie won’t have a problem with.

  2. I am constantly trying to improve blog speed. I had used the same plugins on my site and they helped dramatically. The one I used which was not on your list was the Short Pixel Image Optimization Plugin. Let me cut my image size by 65% without any loss of image quality.

    1. Hello John,

      Good to know that you use an image optimizer plugin that reduces your blog images size heavily.

      Using two different image optimization plugins on a blog will put weight on the blog and the blog load time will be slow.

      Have a blessed weekend…
