    Better rewrite rules makes your blog faster:

    If your .htaccess looks like this`

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress

    change it to

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress

    The additional line RewriteRule ^index.php$ - [L] reduces database requests and will speed up your blog.

    The easiest way to change this:

    Just save your permalinks again!

    No joke! Test it with Google page speed before and after the change.

    Not all web hosts allow users to have access to their .htaccess file, so a plugin is a good idea!
