    1. Reduce the amount of downloadable pages. Use gzip compression, this will shorten the file transfer time to the browser.
    2. Reduce the amount of graphics. Delete unnecessary images.
    3. Reduce the number of browser requests
    4. Enable data caching
    5. Reduce the size of the CSS and JavaScript code.

    Try using a CDN like Cloudflare.

    If you have WordPress just get WP Rocket and Imagify and your site should be optimized for most use.

    Use Pingdom, GtMetrix, and Google Page Speed for further optimization

    In fact, I understand it. I used Wordpress since the very first version. However, right now it's crap. It used to be good but right now it's the same than phpnuke.
    1) Wordpress is mainly a blog site, it's not a portal site. So it has some weakness about it.
    2) It requires constant updates, and those updates could destroy your site, so most people don't update it and they could get hacker.
    3) Technically, it store the pages inside the database, it is highly inefficient. Plus, it has a problem with tag and how it's worked.
    4) Technically, it could be speed up by using a cache, however, an inneficient system + cache < efficient system + cache. You could use w3 total cache or w3 optimizer and still have a slow site.

    The only thing that wasn't mentioned yet is to use images that are sized correctly to where they are used.

    I have read through the suggestions. They are all amazing and you should gladly implement each one of them. One more thing. Check the size of your images. Don't leave it to the theme to resize them for you. Have them in the right sizes. Wish you the best.
