Website taking too long 2 load, although very well optimized !? (8 posts)

    Hi
    Am trying to figure out what could be the problem behind the 30 second load time, the homepage is very well optimized & i c nothing i can do more than what i've done already !?

    1- clean code
    2- reduced http requests
    3- installed w3 total cache ( which was awesome by the way )
    4- disabled the gravatar from >> setting >> discussion board
    5- redirected the non www version of the website to the www version using htaccess file 301

    here is my homepage

    So at this point am really having a hard time come up with new ideas that can help improving the loadtime !

    I hear there is a wp-Smuch plugin that can reduce the images size while keeping the quality, but am not so sure as am using plugins in cautions, i fear it might conflict with w3 total cache !?

    Also people were talking about CloudFlare plugin , they say it works great with total cache and it improves the speed and security !?

    How do i go about fixing this :(

    Sorry for the long comment , help is much appreciated ..

    Your site loads fine to me, in 2 seconds. Just wondering if it has to do with your connection.

    But your website site is 2.5MB, that's huge! You can find the culprit:

    Yes, CloudFlare is great.

    I don't know about that plugin, but this one works:

    but it's a bit complicated to set it up, because requires installing some module from the server site.

    thanks for the great tips, i just managed to come out of a white screen issue caused by a plugin called contact form free , so i think i have to dig a bit more before deciding wp-smuch or image optimizer

    thanks bro

    I have a similar issue with my website:

    Loading the web page takes a long time. I am concerned that visitors will lose patience and move on. How can I expedite loading time?

    Thanks

    Not likely that your site is identical to the OP - so please start a new thread -
