Terry continued with optimizing your website. He started out showing a plugin called “WP-Optimize” that helps you optimize the database. He then covered DNS lookup and how it can affect your page load speed. Then using Pingdom.com to identify the number of dns lookups and their speed to identify ones that could slow down loading. He also talked about using external CSS and javascript and why. Terry then showed a plugin called “Autoptimize” to help minimize css, html, javascript, etc.
