Speed up your WordPress website by cleaning up your database!
Who doesn’t like a website that loads pages fast and provide a smooth experience?
Although speeding up your WordPress website involves a plethora of different factors, like the quality and performance of your hosting platform, a caching and minifying solution, well-coded templates, small image sizes and more, one of the most overlooked factors is the size of the database.
Your website database can easily get cluttered with many posts/pages drafts and revisions, some pingbacks, trackbacks, transients, spam comments and much more.
This, in turn, can slow down your website, even though you may think you’ve already optimized it to the best of your ability.
We found a simple and powerful solution: the WP-Optimize plugin.
It’s well developed, super easy to use and can cleanup your database in seconds faster and better than Mr. Clean and his “Magic Eraser”.
Simply install it straight from the plugin area in your WordPress backend, read the instructions carefully and go ahead with some well-deserved Spring cleaning!
Please remember to backup your website files and database before using this plugin, just in case.
