Site taking Very Long to Load

Please help me with this. Our site is taking forever to load initially. I have tried to remove all the plugins, I smushed all the images, nothing seems to speed it up. Would you mind taking a look around? It would be a huge help!

Hello @bcoplin,

Thanks for asking. :slight_smile:

I checked the page load time on GTmetrix and Pingdom. The average load time is roughly around 20s. Here’s the test result that you can take a look.

There are few things suggested in the test result. I am listing it out and sharing relevant tutorial to help you get started.

  1. Remove query strings:
  2. Specify a Vary: Accept-Encoding header:
  3. Leverage browser caching:
  4. Defer parsing of Javascript:

In the test result it’s also suggested to optimize images. Please make sure to resize and optimize the images for better performance. For more details on optimizing page load time, please take a look at our performance optimization guide.
