    One of the things Google measures websites on is the server response time.

    What do you guys do on your servers to improve it and keep your response times down?

    Each time I found it necessary, I added ram and cores to my servers.

    A CDN helps me immensely.
    And turning on FCGI.

    Would you be able to explain what the CDN is and turning on the FCGI does and also what other effects you get for using them

    (From Webopedia) CDN:
    Basically, it holds your content on servers around the world. When someone accesses my website from Australia - the CDN will serve my websites content from their Australian server (if applicable).

    (From Wikipedia) FCGI:
    Basically instead of creating a new process for each request, it uses persistent processes to handle requests.

    Both links contain a deeper definition.

    I unfortunately don't have before and after screenshot of statistics of using a CDN. But I can show you before and after screenshots of using a caching plugin and FCGI.

    Without FCGI and caching plugin:


    Using these will most definitely help with load time.
