Why is my website slow?

Last Update: May 17, 2016

I’ve recently find out that my website was slow. It took too much time to load, and that was a problem!

I recommend you to try it and see if your website is ok.

Try to logout from Google Chrome and visit your website. It should load in a few seconds, if not your website is slow.

Marcus suggests in his Training that you test your website at https://gtmetrix.com. It is very useful and you can see all the speed problems that your website has.

Anyway, I thought I had too many plugins installed. But I was wrong!

We always try to have a nice website with lots of pictures and good quality content, right? So I use to search for related images in the Internet, and insert them directly in my page/post.

I was so wrong! Each picture has thousands of pixels, so it was very obvious that my website was slow!

So if you use to insert images like me, I do recommend resizing all the images you have in your website, because it can really hurt your website!

I do recommend 2 great related trainings:
