This tutorial is especially useful for speeding up WordPress: Double Site Speed Tutorial
Here is some shocking information on site speed;
- loading time is one of the main contributing factors to page abandonment? And that for every 1 second delay in page response results in a total of a 7% reduction in conversions?
Sites that take ages to load do affect SEO (Says Google) however most sites will not be affected.
Some of the basics of what I've done is:
- Enable Caching
- Minimize HTTP Requests
- Optimize Images
- Compress Sites with Gzip
- Use a CDN
Any questions I would be glad to help.
