For the last couple of weeks I have been trying to figure out how to increase my website speed on mobile and desktop. According to one site I tested it on my mobile speed was 35/100 and my desktop speed was 44/100. This was after a slight increase in speed.
So I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to get this increased. (I still have my hair by the way). I had looked at several other members suggestions through trainings and posts and the increase I posted above is as high as I ever got.
I was beginning to wonder if I would ever get it figured out. I was also beginning to wonder if it was my theme, even though I had a very friendly theme. Then I asked a question and another member suggested it my be my theme based on an answer I had given.
So I spent ALL day today researching themes trying to decide which one I felt I would be best for me. I finally came up with one and set it up and activated it. I went to check my speeds and would you believe 79/100 for mobile and 92/100 for desktop! This is a major improvement!! I even went incognito to see my website load and it was amazing!!!
I was a little scared about changing themes, because I wasn't sure how to do it exactly. But it was a piece of cake! I am so pleased to have a fast website now! I do have some things I need to figure out like my slider pages on the front and how to get my home page button in there! I may also have some other tweaking to do, but for now I am just happy to have the speed up!
It's all good!!
