Support » Plugin: SiteGround Optimizer » SG Optimizer slows down site

  • Resolved avviano


    I have a serious issue with speed loading times. I have hosting with Siteground (fastest hosting option) and also have SG Optimizer engaged. Yet when I run my website past Google Insights, I get a score of 8% or 100%. The pages also take ages to load. I already purged CSS cache in my Divi theme and purged SG cache, but the issue remains. The loading times on smartphones take up to 10 seconds, which is a joke. Right now its much faster when I deactivate SG Optimizer. That cant be right.

    I activated all options. So fonts are preloaded, all images are converted to lossy 75% webm, minify is on and so on…

    Could you please take a look, what the issue could be…. Thanks

    If your site is getting slower this means that caching is not working and there is somethng else breaking your functionality. Disable ALL other optimization plugins, install and activate the SG Optimizer and actually test the Dynamic caching with the provided tool.

    Then check your site front end. Note, that you have some missing sources on your site (

    Once you have your website working with the SG Optimize enabled please bump the thread so we can look into it.

    Hi, Hristo

    I’m also experiencing problems with the Dynamic caching of my homepage. I have run a test and it says that my homepage URL is not cached.

    My site performance have suffered a lot lately and I couldn’t figure it out why. May this be the problem? I do not use any other optimisation tools other than SG Optimizer.

    PS. I used the SG Optimizer Test tool.

    Thank you!
