In The past 2 and a half years of my online presence, I have dealt with many WordPress blogs. Initially, everyone is willing to have a top notch kit to start his/her blog.

Speed is genuinely a main factor of blogs in these days. For those who are unaware of why this is important for a WordPress blog, Read this article on speed.

Now coming back to the point. In this post, i will be telling you about the Top 3 Cache plugins which i have used in my blogging journey that will help you to speed up your blog dramatically.

Why do we need to pay attention on speed?

As i wrote in my previous article, speed is an official ranking factor nowadays. If you are unaware, let me tell you something about google algorithm update.

In recent updates, google has clearly mentioned that “Speed of a blog’s mobile page is Now an official factor for SERPs”. Previously, this applied only to the desktops. This update will roll out in July 2018.

The best thing you can do to speed your WordPress blog is installing a cache plugin. Although There a few plugins featuring in the repository, I will help you to select the three best of them.

1. W3 Total Cache

Best cache plugins

This is probably the best plugin you can have when it comes to possibilities. I don’t recommend W3TC because of it’s ratings, I do because it is genuinely the best.

The Initial configuration of this plugins requires a bit of technical knowledge and beginners might screw up the settings. This is a big reason i don’t recommend this plugin for a start up blog.

Once configured correctly, W3TC works seamlessly. You can manage CDN integration, Leverage Browser cache, Handle Minification and more from this single plugin.

2. WP Fastest Cache

Another awesome plugin it is. No doubt that this plugin is surely the best cache plugin for ant beginners. Unlike other plugin, this one works straight out of the box.

You just have to enable a couple of options which can be accessed  under a single screen. This is very easy to do for any beginner.

The biggest drawback with this plugin is it’s premium version. The free version which is openly available does not provides some basic functionalities which you get free with W3 Total cahe.

3. WP Super Cache

The Best thing happened with a cache plugin. Upon installing the plugin, you just need to turn the cache ON. That’s it. This plugin will handle the rest.

The parent company behind this plugin is Automattic (who made WordPress). Regular updates ensure you have the latest coding and features. This plugins masters the art of making static files.

Note – Do not use any other cache plugin with this one.

WP Super Cahe has a neck to neck fight with W3Total cache as they both perform outstanding. But as a beginner, you might be comfortable with WP Super Cahe or WP fastest cache.

If you need to know detailed specs of any of the above plugin, do let me know. This is just a list and that’s why I didn’t went too deep.

Remember, A Cache plugin is needed on almost all shared hosting servers. You can test the speed of your website/blog with free tools like pingdom and gmetrix.

Now, I would like to advise you one thing –

You don’t need a premium cache plugin. Yes, i am talking about the WP Rocket. Although i am a WP Rocket Affiliate, yet i would recommend you to go with the above three cache plugins which will surely boost your WordPress blog’s speed. It is always better to save money.

What is the speed of your blog or website ? Which cache plugin do you use?
