Enable Caching

Caching allows the server to store copies of webpages on the server. This allows the pages to load faster and reduce the overall load on the server. If you do not make frequent changes to your website caching can be a great option to speed up your page load times of your Drupal 7 website. 

    1. Log into your Drupal 7 Dashboard
    2. Go to Configuration >> Performance
    3. Under Caching select "Cache pages for anonymous users"
    4. Under Cache Blocks select the check box

  1. Click "Save configuration" to save the changes
