We are about to launch a new version of our website that has been designed completely using Pro. We are discovering that the performance of the site is very poor. For instance, the home page takes 10 seconds to load and the Google Pagespeed score is in the 20s!
We have tried most of the performance optimization techniques, including:
- Compression of all images
- W3 Cache plugin activation
- Removal of plugins that we could identify as performance bottlenecks
At this stage, we are out of ideas and suspect that perhaps we have some incorrect Pro configuration or setting that is the root cause. I have created a very simple “Hello world” test page. The information for it is in the secure note. I will really appreciate if you can analyze the page through Google pagespeed or similar tool and let us know if you discover something obvious. Much appreciated!
