There are various reasons that your WordPress blog is loading slow and one of the simple reason is wordpress has to serve php call to open same page for different readers.
This add more load to server and should be avoided by using a cache plugin. There are many cache plugins available but one which I personally like and recommend for my readers are wp-super cache plugin.
WP Super Cache plugin stores your web page into .html format in cache folder and when a reader request those pages it serves from cache folder and lowering down the no. of php calls. This give an instant boost to your wordpress blog.
WP Super Cache creates a static html page and serves that up to visitors of your blog instead of the dynamic php pages. Visitors who are logged in to your blog, or who have left a comment, will see the dynamic php pages instead of the static, cached pages. By creating and using a static page that is cached the activity on your server will be reduced and it will run faster.
Somethings to be considered for WP Super Cache
- Assure that the Apache mod mime and mod rewrite modules are installed.
- WordPress fancy permalinks must be enabled.
- PHP safe mode should be disabled.
- Backup your .htaccess before installing the plugin.
- Upload the WP Super Cache folder to your plugins directory, where it will create a ‘wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/’ directory.
- Activate “WP Super Cache” on the WP plugins page.
- Go to Settings->WP Super Cache and enable caching.
