    Install:

    Wp Super Cache

    that should increase your loading time dramatically :) Hope that helps.

    smush.it and total cache are the two easiest plugins to use for a quick fix

    There are billions of tutorials for this question all over the web but what I'd suggest is move your site to litespeed hosting. You can clearly see pages loading quickly but there's more to it than that. Minify css & js. As Duffers5000 said install smush.it plugin to compress the images. IMO, W3 total cache is much superior and has a lot more control than WP super cache.

    I'd go against the stream and advise against caching plugins. I used to use them but after several tests by different tools I found out that the blog runs faster without those plugins. Instead, you could reduce the page size, I mean the media stuff you have. For images you can use smush.it as suggested above. Badly written codes can cause longer load times and therefore you should choose popular plugins from popular developers for your necessities.

    If you've worked the blog a lot then as you may have noticed, posts and pages are saved as revisions and those can slow down loading time in admin panel, there's a database optimization plugin to delete them (and keep the actual post), that helped a bit for me.

    Try to keep the amount of plugins minimal, only use ones you absolutely need.

    Host your Wordpress site in the cloud. It also helps to improve security too.

    Yeah Wp super cache is a plugin I use alot.
    Also check your site and see if there are any pictures that's loading slowly and try to remove/change them.

    There are a bunch of cache plugins but I personally havent noticed that big of a difference between them.

    Thanks all for the suggestions, I have an issue with WP Super Cache last time I used it on one of my website but I got my site down and down day and one day I found that there was a problem with Wp Super Cache.

    If you are facing issues with the WP Super Cache then better try the W3 Total Cache...
    I'm using it in all my WP websites and never had problems
