    Hi guys, my website seems to be slowing down quite a lot recently.

    Can anyone have a look maybe someone can see something that may be slowing it down.

    I already have W3 Total Cache didnt really seem to help much.

    Hi Scotty,

    A few things which are likely to help with performance:

    • Ask your host to turn on Gzip Compression for your hosting (this will substantially reduce the weight of your pages) as it will compress css/js on your site. This should make a noticable difference.
    • Where possible combine your JS files into a single JS file and then compress the file with a online tool like http://jscompress.com/
    • For your css again try to combine your css into one css file. You may want to use http://www.sitepoint.com/dustmeselectors/ this firefox extension to remove any unused css (again if you have any). Then finally compress the single file with a tool like http://www.cssdrive.com/index.php/main/csscompressor/
    • Remove any wordpress plugins/js form your page which you are not using (if there are any!)
    • Install the Yslow plugin for Firefox/Chrome and run further tests on your pages to see it's suggestions

    Hope that helps :)
