Optimizing WordPress For Performance

Laughing Squid Traffic (30 Days)

Michael Biven, our Chief Technical Tentacle of Laughing Squid Web Hosting, recently wrote an excellent post on “Optimizing Performance for WordPress”, where he explores various ways to improve the performance of WordPress by keeping it updated, installing a caching plugin, decreasing comment & pingback spam, outsourcing media & javascript and a bunch of other great tips.

We use almost all of these recommendations on Laughing Squid (the above graph shows Laughing Squid’s blog traffic the last 30 days), which has helped to keep server loads low and things running smoothly when it comes to front page Diggs and ongoing high traffic from sources like Google search and StumbleUpon.
