WordPress Plugin of the week is WP-Sweep.

What is it?

This little plugin cleans up and optimises your WordPress database.

Why do you need it?

It’s always a good idea to keep your website as fast and optimised as possible but most people think about adding front-end code solutions and forget about WordPress itself. This tool will go through your entire database and clean everything up for you, deleting revisions, unused categories and tags and lots more. One word of warning though, make sure you backup up your WordPress website first, just in case.

How much does it cost?
