We are working on a new version of our site and are just about done. However, we are realizing now that the performance of the new site is quite poor (I will post the link to the new site version in a private note). Our developer has done the basics as follows:
- Compressed all images using ShortPixel plugin
- We are using Total Cache for caching everything that the plugin allows to be cached.
- We are running on Google Cloud Platform with a robust server.
- We are using Revolution Slider on a few of our pages but only have one slide per slider. Also, configured the Lazy Load to "Smart" in Performance settings for every Slider.
What could be the cause for the slow performance? Are we doing something wrong? Will appreciate any pointers.
