If your blog doesn’t get a lot of visitors, then this post is of no use! This plugin, WP Super Cache, is useful for only those bloggers whose post frequents Digg.com main page, or gets tons of traffic every day.
What does WP-Super Cache plugin do?
Nothing magical, just that it converts your database driven worpdress posts to static HTML files.
Why does it convert wordpress posts to HTML?
Rendering HTML files is quicker and efficient and this will result in better performance of your site.
What are the benefits of using WP Super Cache?
1> Your visitors will be served static pages, hence page loading is much faster when compared to the conventional database driven posts, in short, the content fetch time is faster!
2> Bandwidth load on your server reduces considerably! Querying your database is a very expensive action, and this move (switch form database driven to static HTML) will save you loads of money.
Guess it’s fair enough and really sensible for all bloggers with heavy traffic to install this plugin. I’ve never hit Digg front page ever, so I’m really not sure how many visitors Digg would send, but considering some decent traffic on this blog, I am implementing this one very soon.
