Support » Fixing WordPress » Site very slow to load..

  • Hi,

    My site is roughly one month old and has always been very slow to load.

    [ redundant link removed ]

    I have CDN through Cloudflare, the site is secure with SSL certificate and Really Simple SSL plugin and my images are JPG compressed.

    I’ve tried (and paid) for WP Rocket – this made my site slower, however, as did W3 Total Cache. I’ve uninstalled both.

    I’m at a total loss over what to do next. The site is termed as ‘slow’ by Google speed test and never loads within the expected 2 seconds. This is really affecting my stats.

    I use Bluehost basic hosting.

    Thank you in advance.

    Also sometimes a good purge of the cache on CloudFlare can help.

    I’ve just done a complete purge on Cloudflare – loading speed reduced by 1 second by my calculations.

    hello lornastone,

    its common problem of page speed. i have a good tips for you to boost your website page speed

    don’t use W3Total cache its really slow your website.

    Use Lightspeed Cache and Asset CleanUp: Page Speed Booster.

    and need to set some setting and then check on gtmatrix your website page is above 80-85 pagespeed

    Thanks Sks21, yes W3 Total Cache was a disaster. Completely uninstalled within hours.

    I will try your suggestions and report back.

    Thank you again.
