Actually, there is a way to tell which plugins may be the problem. The P3 plugin (ironically, written by GoDaddy) can be used to generate a report of what each plugin is doing in terms of runtime. Longer run times will usually correlate with more resources consumed and give you some initial guidance on which plugins to examine first.

The h1 tag is the most important header on the page, it should subsequently provide the most overall and relevant heading for the content on the page. If you were to use the name of your website/business as the h1 on every page of your website, this is useless to a search engine and a human.

There are many WordPress plugins that will do redirects for you. I use the Quick Page Post Redirect Plugin which adds an Admin page where you can list the redirects. I also use the True Google 404 plugin that uses site search to try to resolve error URLs and keeps a list of any error URLs so that you can add redirects for them.

About the question, I understand what is your problem and I had the same question too in the past. In my case I installed Wordpress inside a folder called /news, as it was the purpose of the blog, to act as the news platform of the main site. In terms of ...
