SO I have tested everything, deactivated and reactivated, completely fresh database, W3 and so on. And I still cannot get my site which use to load in 0.6 seconds to load anywhere near that. Even a site I tested with no plugins and next to no content loaded in about 4 seconds, way to long compared to what I had previously.
The thing I can't figure out because I cant roll back wordpress (a bit beyond me) is if it is wordpress 3.6.1 or changes at bluehost which now makes my site and other sites I have tested run really slowly. The most obvious common denominator seems to be the wordpress update on bluehost but I can't be sure.
Any chance bluehost are throttling back their cheap hosting and pushing the pro version without letting the consumer know? I have spoken to them a couple times and the best advice I got was "what about upgrading to pro?" Otherwise maybe an incompatibility with bluehost and wordpress 3.6.1.
I have checked a few sites I know are updated and running on bluehost and they are also running way slow. However my girlfriends site which is running on bluehost but not updated to latest wordpress 3.6.1 seems to be ok.
Would love a solution to this as now my very trimmed down site takes 12 - 20 seconds to load. And please don't suggest W3 or similar as I have tried them with little succes and this whole thing started WITHOUT any changes to caching and such.
Hope someone has some answers.
