    There are no plugins that “increase site speed” all of them decrease speed, because they do additional processing.

    Even cache plugins work at second hit to same page.
    Your site has big TTFB (roughly can be named as page generation time)

    Does a clean WordPress install have similar TTFB? Can you test it with additional WP install on same host?

    Maybe hosting itself is slow and best way to speed up your site is to change your webhost



    Thanks for your reply. I have many sites on this hosting but all are working well, except this site. And i export this site xml and import to another site, but same issue on the other domain too.

    Try to clear all caches and remove your “overoptimization” then, it may help
    You can control it using “waterfall” tool (Browser dev tools) or Gtmetrix

    Hi @surbhishringi,

    Your page size is about 3.4 MB. Mainly due to your images. This is the common culprit. Try to get the page size down to 1 MB or less.

    You can start by optimising your images and using a WebP service.

    I cover WordPress performance in more detail on Quora for another theme. But, you can look at the items that aren’t theme-specific.

    Good luck!

    Oh. And, I agree with @fierevere. Your page has a lot of bloat. Most likely from plugins. Your DOM is much larger than average (2,866) and your block rendering scripts are high (14.2s). I would address these after you optimise your images.

    Look at the report details:

    Start here:
    1. Resize images to the size of the container they’re in
    2. Compress images
    3. Edit your .htaccess to add Expire Headers
    4. Optimize caching – I use Autoptimize depending on hosting

    Other than that the following factors play a big role in site speed:
    1. Hosting – Is your hosting package good enough?
    2. Theme – Is your theme lightweight?
    3. Plugins – More plugins = Slower speed –> Only use what you need
    4. Update PHP to latest version
