How to check server response time and reduce it
Checking the server response time
To find out the server response time, refer to webmaster panels. The HTTP status code should be 200 OK, and the server response time should be no more than 200 ms. Ideally, it is recommended to make this indicator another 4 times less. The sooner the requested page is generated, the better it is ranked in the search results. This direct dependence of the search engine optimization on the server response speed was found in the study by MOZ specialists.
How to reduce server response time
- clean the database of trash and unnecessary options;
- create caches of pages and binary codes of the PHP connections;
- go to a high-performance server;
- delete calls to third-party resources;
- reduce the number of server requests.
To reduce server response time in WordPress, use caching, data cleaning, and server request plugins.
