    Sorry in advance if I am posting this in the wrong section,

    My Website is Completely image based, I am running wordpress software on it, right now i have about 20k posts, each post consists of 1 image. My site has been soo slow for the last 2 months, I have wasted so much time switching hostgators account, Upgrading to Vps hosting, installed cache plugins, etc doing everything possible :(. I get about 2500 visitors a day total. Can someone please tell me what to do? I can't afford dedicated servers, I can't even afford Vps hosting. Is it wordpress? Should I use drupal or Joomla Etc

    Try disable some plugins then check your site speed. Have too many plugins can certainly slow your site.
    Check if maybe the images are too large or too many loading on page

    Thecontentauthority made a post about this today you should check out. Can't post links /blackhat-seo/white-hat-seo/547669-increasing-site-speed.html

    Also use a CDN if you aren't already. Cloudflare offers a free plan.

    Also this. Get rid of any plugins that aren't essential. This can make a big difference.
