Optimize Your Code
1. Add this code to wp-config.php
define ('EMPTY_TRASH_DAYS', 3);// 0 for completely disable the trash system define('WP_POST_REVISIONS', 3); //false - for completely disable the post revision system define('WP_DEBUG', false); define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M'); define('WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');
2. Enable Gzip Compression
Gzip compression allows a website page to be transferred to a browser at up to 70% of its original size. The browser will then decompress the page and display it to the user.
Gzip can be enabled via the WordPress options page. You can find this page at www.yourwebsite.com/wp-admin/options.php. To enable Gzip, simply change the value of the Gzip field from 0 to 1.

Install Optimize plugins for Wordress site
1. Optimize Your Images
Install the WP-Smush.it plugin. This is a great plugin that will perform basic lossless (no loss of image quality) optimizations as you upload pictures into the “Media” folder of WordPress. It even offers a “Bulk Smush.it” command to optimize existing images. This is a real simple way to keep on top of your images for blog posts and new content added.
2. Install a Cache Plugin
Caching plugins allow you to publish static HTML files instead of dynamic files. This greatly reduces the time a page takes to load as there are no PHP or MySQL commands to execute.
Caching your pages is one of the most effective ways of improving your page loading times, with many plugins promising an improvement of at least ten times. Popular caching plugins include WP Super Cache, W3 Total Cache and WP Fastest Cache. All three plugins are available free.
3. Use a Content Delivery Network
Many hosting providers integrate with numerous CDN providers, and plugins like W3 Total Cache can also be configured to integrate with a CDN. At Zoompf we use Amazon CloudFront , but there are many other great options available too.
