A bloated database can potentially create a slow website and so it is extremely essential to keep this area free of unwanted things.
WordPress websites store a lot of information in the form of trashed comments, cookies, unused plugin data and so much more that developers are unaware of.
It is highly beneficial and easy to clean up this wide database using yet another smart plugin available on WordPress- WPSweep.
WPSweep is a high performance, optimally coded plugin that uses WordPress delete functions.
It performs by getting rid of revisions, orphaned Meta, spammed comments, Duplicated post Meta, Transient options, Unused and Untermed comments and more.
It basically sweeps off your site and provides a clean, better working space to the developers.
WPSweep is much better than its competitor WP-Optimize that directly runs Delete my SQL queries leaving orphaned data in your repository.
It is also a better option to back up the data before going for this sweep to avoid any data loss.
