    The best way to do it is to occasionally check website speed at pingdom.

    - Avoid large images in your design/content
    - Avoid using Flash
    - Avoid adding too many graphics and banners
    - Avoid adding videos that autoplays

    Wouldnt you like to know?
    For optimizing the images use programs such as gimp or optipng. These will strip out useless data which is sometimes added by programs such as fireworks. The two programs above will reduce the size of file without reducing the image quality.

    To decrease the page or site loading time flash contents should be avoided as much as you can. No doubt it attracts the user, but it's use should be minimized.

    Great stuff here. The information and the detail were just perfect.
    I think that your perspective is deep, its just well thought out
    and really fantastic to see someone who knows how to put these thoughts down so well.

    Also, use wp-cache to make your site load faster the 2nd time the user visits your site.

    Excellent thread! My tip: Don't just use any widget you find just because it will make your web site look prettier. Some of them can really make it slow down.

    Using a caching program can do wonders. WP Super Cache is the best I've found so far. I use it on every single one of my sites to improve performance. Highly recommend it!
