My website is based on a Wordpress and I want to know why its loading metrics are so bad. What can I do practically?

I've already tried to use:

  • Cloudflare
  • W3 Total Cache
  • Autoptimize
  • EWWW Image Optimizer

  • What is it that's slowing down your site? There's a lot of factors involved. It could be server, too many plugins etc – Abu Nooh Jan 20 '18 at 19:45
  • They eliminated the link to my site, this is my speed test: tools.pingdom.com/#!/dL5gV/http://www.6dragonskungfu.com I know the problems, I do not know how to solve them: - Leverage browser caching - Combine external JavaScript – Master Kongling Jan 22 '18 at 10:06

The most practical thing you can do is:

  1. Optimize your images
  2. Remove query strings from static resources (there's a plugin for this)
  3. Set expire dates on your headers (I think you can do this with Cloudflare)
  4. Choose your hosting provider wisely.

If you're hosting on a shared server somewhere like GoDaddy or Bluehost than there's not much you can do. I would suggest looking into a managed VPS host like Cloudways.

  • I use a2hosting, it is not so bad, the bigger problem is with WordPress and its plug-ins / themes that limit my control on external requests and with image resizing... this is my speed test: tools.pingdom.com/#!/dL5gV/6dragonskungfu.com – Master Kongling Jan 22 '18 at 10:09
