    I've just seen that the majority of my traffic is coming from facebook mobile and that I have a very high bounce rate of 86%. I checked my site out on my iphone and it took eons to load any page.

    Wondering if this is an issue for others? and what can be done about it?

    my site is http://hooptricks.org/

    Thank you

    The only thing I can think of that would make it slow would be that the thumbnail images are quite large. Otherwise it's most likely a plugin or some external file that possibly loads slow.

    Thumbnail sizes can be changed in functions.php with a child theme.

    Pixel dimensions are rather large for the medium-sized thumbs, which results in larger file size. For good sharpness on retina screens.

    You can change:

    add_image_size( 'thumb-medium', 520, 245, true );

    To:

    add_image_size( 'thumb-medium', 345, 162, true );

    In functions.php with a child theme. Then regenerate thumbnails.
