Element Template and W3 Total Cache
I just wondering how I can improve my website load time. Currently I am using Element Template and W3 Total Cache.
The test result you can see by following this link
I believe the load time of this website can be improve if I managed to solve few issue has been highlight on the Performance Review but I not sure how to do it. FYI, the website run on shared hosting with Max Cdn and Cloudflare.
Can you give some suggestion?
Thank you in advance
You might want to try these tools as well. I think the one you’re referencing is a little dated for real-world results.
Regardless, I think the only thing slowing the page load down is images and requests to multiple CDNs. Your page speed is not *that bad (77/100) but could probably be better with some .htaccess media caching and storing your resources on a central CDN so that external http requests can cache the headers.
This is an interesting topic. I’m getting excellent page speed with Element and W3 Total Cache. http://swirlbots.com/ got a Google PageSpeed score of 96/100. SimpleThemes were the fastest responsive WordPress themes I could find. See http://www.motionbuzz.com/blog/fastest-responsive-wordpress-theme/ for test results. Using a VPS instead of shared hosting can also improves load speed.
Very cool. I wasn’t aware of that post. Thanks for pointing that out.
