WordPress Slow

  • I have a wordpress site and it seems to be loading really slow compared to other sites on the same server that are using joomla. I was wondering if there is something I can check to see why it is taking 30+ sec to load pages on the site. However, the admin part (dashboard,plugins page, general options page, etc.) doesn’t take as long 10 sec.

  • i had similar problems – 30-60 second load times, wondered if it had anything to do with hosting (godaddy), SQL db, or maybe the theme i was using, or maybe that wordpress isn’t closing DB connex… anyhow i was able to drop my average load time to 3 seconds(+/-) by removing GOOGLE ADS (and removing a link to an empty css file). some very good advice was found at PaulSpoerry.com relating to Firebug, an add-on for firefox. using the “Net” function you can see each & every request a page makes and how long it takes. my missing stylesheet took 19s (?) but google was taking 30s+ to deliver.

    anyway your problems might be different than mine, but firebug will at least show all the requests your page makes, and that’s as good a place to start as any.

    wesbroadway is right on, but if you give us a link to your site we may be able to offer more specific advice

    My site is http://www.motormayhem.net I do have ads but I don’t want to remove them. Any other advice would be greatly appreciated.

    It also hapens to me. I also have ads and do not want to remove them. This es my site: http://farmacia-morlan.com/famacia

    That issue is really complicated. Please look up:

    If you “don’t want to remove” those items that are obviously slowing down the loading of your site, you are pretty much on your own. There is a fix and you don’t want to take advantage of it? As an aside – anything connected to Google will have an immediate and most times very negative effect on page loads – especially googleads.

    I guess it depends on the purpose of your site – to inform, or to try and make money. Your choice there.

    On ultra high speed fiber, it took almost 30 seconds for your site to load completely in my browser. Had I been a casual visitor I would have aborted and looked elsewhere.
