You can do this by add the following code to the .htaccess file.
 <IfModule mod_expires.c>  
   ExpiresActive on  
   ExpiresByType text/css "access plus 60 days"  
   ExpiresByType text/javascript "access plus 60 days"  
   ExpiresByType image/ico "access plus 60 days"  
   ExpiresByType image/jpg "access plus 60 days"  
   ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access plus 60 days"  
   ExpiresByType image/gif "access plus 60 days"  
   ExpiresByType image/png "access plus 60 days"  
   ExpiresByType text/css "access plus 60 days"  
   ExpiresByType text/html "access plus 60 days"  

According to W3 Total Cache plugin a complete pack of expires headers as follows:

 <IfModule mod_expires.c>

   ExpiresByType application/ A31536000  
   ExpiresByType application/zip A31536000  
Note: You can change the time

9. Specify image dimensions

What is mean by that?
It means images beeing only resized, but they aren't cropped. That would make your site faster. Instead of loading big image size only to show, lets say 50x50, will make your site load slow. You can add custom image sizes in function.php, and change code in areas that you are using images.
That will need some work, to sort it out.
How to fix that? Yes You can fix this by adding the following code in functions.php
 add_image_size( 'thumbnail-new', 220, 180, true );  
 add_image_size( 'thumb', 600, 350, true );  
 add_image_size( 'thumbnil', 600, 350, true );  
 add_image_size( 'medium', 600, 350, true );  
 add_image_size( 'large', 600, 350, true );  
 add_image_size( 'post-thumbnail', 600, 350, true );  
 add_image_size( '{custom-image-type}', 600, 350, true );  
 function _remove_script_version( $src ){  
 $parts = explode( '?', $src );  
 return $parts[0];  
 add_filter( 'script_loader_src', '_remove_script_version', 15, 1 );  
 add_filter( 'style_loader_src', '_remove_script_version', 15, 1 );  

10. Enable Keep-Alive

How to Enable Keep Alive? We can do this by htaccess. Access the .htaccess file wich you can find in the root folder of you WordPress Install, which you can access via FTP.
This is the code that you will need to paste in the .htaccess file in order to enable Keep Alive:
 <IfModule mod_headers.c>  
 Header set Connection keep-alive  
Now, you should paste the code directly below "#END WordPress" Please be sure to paste it only  after this line or you WILL break  your website which will return a 500 server error.

Result after all this
