Enable Dynamic Caching

Adding Dynamic caching to your WordPress site will have great effect on its speed. There are many services like Varnish and APC that can be used but all of them require a lot of server configuration and tweaking of your application to work correctly. This is why, we at SiteGround have created a tool called the SuperCacher. With it, all you need to do is install a small plugin and enable the Dynamic caching with a single click. For more information on how to use it, please check out our SuperCacher Tutorial.
Enable gZIP compression

The easiest way to enable the gZIP compression for your images, CSS and JS files is to add these lines to your .htaccess file in the root WordPress folder:

Use a CDN

Content delivery networks (CDN) are server networks that clone cached copies of your site on all of their location nodes. This means that when your visitors request your site, cache of it will be served by the closest server location, rather than the main datacenter of your hosting provider. For more information on that matter, check out our Cloudflare CDN Tutorial.
Optimize your Images

Minify your JavaScript and CSS files

Minifying your CSS and JavaScript files means that all the unnecessary data from them like double spaces, empty new lines, comments, etc. will be removed from the files lowering their size. There are many online tools that you can use for free to minify your files. In addition, if you're using the W3 Total Cache plugin, it has an option to automatically minify your theme's CSS and JS files.
Leverage browser caching
