Site Speed Optimization considers and a number of factors

CONTENT DELIVERY NETWORK

Nearly every major blog and site is making the most of a CDN today. A CDN basically dispenses the load, save bandwidth and consequently speeds up your website. Basically, a content delivery network allows visitors to download all your static files including Javascript, CSS as well as images while serving these files on their nearest servers.

ENABLING BROWSER CACHING

Browser caching allows you to store static unchanged files of your website on your visitors browser for faster loading of your website. As a matter of fact, there are various static files such as website logo, JavaScript files and CSS files that rarely change. Therefore, it is a bright idea to enable browser caching. In order to enable browser caching, a small code snippet needs to be added in your .htaccess file.

CACHING PLUGINS

WordPress also offers various caching plugins to help you speed your WordPress website. These plugins display a static HTML file rather than creating dynamic pages at run time every time, which, by the way, takes longer to load. The caching plugin also allows you to minify your HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files.
