How to clean you WordPress Database?

Postby jairo001 » Sat Apr 30, 2016 5:44 am

Hello dear members, I hope that you are well.
In this post, I will address a topic that is very important for WordPress bloggers. It concerns cleaning up their WordPress databases.
Why you should clean up your WordPress Database?
If your WordPress site has been around for longer than a few months, then you should think absolutely about a clean up. Indeed, your database may be full of garbage that make your site sluggish and bloated and affect the loading time of you site, and as you know, every additional second your site takes to load, your page abandon rate rises. We hate waiting for pages to load ;)
Advantages of cleaning up your WordPress Database
Cleaning up all unnecessary/orphan items in your WordPress database has many advantages, such as:
• Reducing the size of your database.
• Improving efficiency when accessing tables.
• Your site will load faster than before.
• Your backup files will be quicker and smaller.
Many plugins are available!
There are several WordPress plugins that help you identifying the items you should clean and help you also cleaning them. However, you should choose carefully what plugin to use for the clean up in order to not break your site. As you know, there are plenty of bad coded plugins ;)

What Plugin to choose for the clean up?
I have so far tried many plugins to clean up my WordPress databases such as WP Clean Up, WP-Optimize, WP-Sweep, etc. They all worked to an extent, but there was always some drawbacks such as: the plugin has not been updated for months or years, or the author does not respond to queries, or there were some missing features, or some users had made bad reviews and had problems using the plugin, etc. Until I found and tested the 'Advanced Database Cleaner' plugin, which is for me the best and I recommend it for you too.
