  2. Oh wow! Thanks for the great information about and for awesome plugins! I have downloaded W3 Total Cache. If I could find some great settings about it then it will be awesome :D

    when using the W3 cache will make the server load increases, so if you use a cheap server will encounter a lot of problems

    • Zain Raza

      You are absolutely right, for those having cheap servers must use wp-super cache to bear the load.

      • deepak kumar

        hi zain raza i found yout blog on google to last 2 months because i like your blog content i am reading this blog continue and i have bookmark this blog from 2 months and i read it for revision….so i want that be continue your useful post …thanks

    Thanks for this roundup, Zain. Over the past two years, I’ve tried Super Cache and Total Cache, the last of which completely overloaded my server and constantly crashed my WordPress Admin.

    I’m eager to give Hyper Cache a shot.

  5. Ok, great so now we know which caching tools are out there. But can we get a performance based rating as well? I.e. benchmarks?

  6. I have tried 3 out of the 5 on your list and couldn’t get any of them to work properly. Probably user error! :) I desperately tried to get W3 Total Cache to work…but to no avail. I finally found Quick Cache (Speed Without Compromise) and has been on my blog now for around 2 months. Worked right out of the box for me. Went from 5-10 second load time down to under 2 seconds…with load times as low at 600 ms! I use Pingdom to test my page load speeds. Thanks for the info!

  7. Is a cache really required, though? I get that it can load a couple seconds faster, but…. do those couple seconds really matter at all to search engines? Aren’t they more concerned with backlinks and relevant/high quality content? I’d love to know, as I’ve just started a new website, and want to know if it’ll rank better with a cache or not.

    I mean sure, it can’t hurt to use, but I don’t want to put more stress on my server (through more plugins) than there already is.

    Please get back to me if you have the time, thanks!

    Regards,

      Hi AnimeDose,

      Yes, those seconds (even milliseconds sometimes) matter. 2 seconds multiplied by thousands of page hits per (minute/hour) adds up really fast.

      When Google indexes your site and takes 3 seconds versus 1 second to visit each page, they see that as a huge difference. Now, add in mobile, where 1 second can = 3 seconds and 3 seconds can = 9 seconds and you start to see the importance of page speed.

    Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so
    I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  9. Though many hosts recommend w3 and wp cache plugin, but i personally use the latest Lite Cache plugin, it is very effective for small to medium range blogs. Though for blogs with large number of pages i believe that will not be a good solution. Also, i have found these cache plugins themselves to be very resource hogging.
