    From your profile, it seem´s like you run a web development company "aistechnolabs.com" since you linked it and you need recommendations on "some best plugin for Wordpress" ? .. This is a perfect example on what is wrong with people today, self-proclaimed so-called Gurus .. It´s sad that people commit fraud just to earn a buck. really, people come on, make a buck, but at least have some integrity and moral of what you do.

    9. Use PHP 7
    10. Optimize Webserver (Apache for example remove unnecessary modules)
    11. Cache DB queries
    12. Get a decent hosting
    13.a Cut down HTTP requests
    13.b Reduce External HTTP Requests
    14. Remove plugins for stuff you can achieve with simple builtin logic
    15. Use a theme or built your own, that doesn't use complex logic for simple things
    16. Enable Gzip Compression
    17. Load Scripts t page bottom
    18. Add an expires header to static resources
    19. Control the amount of post revisions stored
    20. Turn off pingbacks and trackbacks
    21. Split Comments into Pages
    22. Use Excerpts on Homepage and Archives
    23. Split Long Posts into Pages
    24. Prefetch Commonly Used Domains

    Have fun.

    I'm always a little suspicious when Gurus say here are expert tips but only if you go to this link

    I didn't write it, I'm not going to copy and paste the entire thing. Merely sharing a valuable article I came across. I don't even use WordPress but still got some good ideas from it.

    I believe use less plugins - your site will load in good time and not too much issues

    It's not really fraud though. More like a shameless self plug if anything.

    In any case, using tools like http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/ and just following the suggestions will usually help you speed up just about any site.

    Nope, maybe I should offer one... But most things you could do from your control panels in WP or host (depending on hosting).
    For most of the points you find a howto on the web if you c&p it to google. There're hunderts of howtos on wp optimizing, with the exact headlines i posted.

    If you have detail questions write here and we can have some more value in this thread

    As I generalized that statement, is it not fraud to have a business and website where a business states that they are "experts" to their customers, when in fact they are asking for "some best plugin for Wordpress" in a forum so they can sell their "expertise" to their customers, then what is fraud? This is the problem today, people are accepting this kind of behavior and like just call it "a shameless self-plug" when it is clearly a fraudulent behavior.
