Having a WordPress installation with too much unnecessary data can be detrimental to a website, simply because having a lot of clutter will affect the overall performance. This is particularly the case for websites that are constantly updated with new posts, pages, etc. There may be a lot of useless data which is weighing down your website that you may not be aware of. And unfortunately, things like site speed and page loading times take a direct hit. Fortunately, there is an easy, efficient way to manage all this unnecessary data. WP-Optimize works by automatically cleaning your WordPress database so that it runs at maximum efficiency. It automatically removes the unnecessary data from your WordPress installation without manual queries, so your database is always optimized for peak performance. WP-Optimize will also remove post revisions, which is when WordPress automatically saves new revisions to the database when you make multiple edits to pages or posts. It also cleans up your comments table by removing all the spam, unapproved comments, trash posts, trackbacks, pingbacks, etc, that have built up over time. WP-Optimize reports on which of your database tables are wasted space, so you will be able to see where clutter has gathered and clean where necessary. It can also run an automatic cleanup schedule too and keep a selected number of weeks data, according to your specifications.
