    Thank you for sharing a very useful article.
    There is another great alternative for WP-Optimize called WP-Sweep
    This plugin (by a well-known WordPress developer, Lester Chan) uses proper WordPress delete functions as much as possible instead of running direct delete MySQL queries. Whereas the WP-Optimize plugin uses direct delete SQL queries which can leave orphaned data left behind. Despite the popularity of WP-Optimize with active installs: 500,000+ and rating of 4.8, last updated 2 months ago; in comparison to less popular WP-Sweep having active installs: 20,000+ and rating of 4.8, last updated 4 months ago. In other words, WP-Sweep is a better coded plugin than WP-Optimize.
