What is Caching?
Every time you visit your blog, WordPress will go through a lengthy process to build everything for your web browser to display. If you enable caching only the first visitor will go through this entire process. The caching mechanism will save the data and then serve every subsequent visitor the final result, thus speeding up your page response time.
