When you choose any theme for your website you must have to check the page speed of “theme demo” using a tool such as pingdom to see how theme run and how much time it take to load. This should give you idea that theme is perfect for your website or not.

Images are also a part which decrease your website page speed. You have to compress your images with such a great plugin that is WP Smush.it. These plugins compress the images automatically as you upload them to your media library. You won’t notice any difference of the quality of images when you use this Plugin.
Delete Unwanted Items
High number of plugins slow down your website speed. Try to keep that plugin in your WordPress which you are using and which you want to use.
Delete Spam Comments
Keeping Spam comments in your database also slows down your website speed. Make your routine to delete all spam comments daily.
