    What host are you on? Looks like your server is taking 4.7 seconds to respond. Everything else checks out. Send me a PM and we'll get it fixed.

    If it's not your hosting and you are running wordpress, you can use plugins like Super Cache, Minify, etc to speed up your site.

    dude, i gotta tell you. (this is not me). i hired this dude for 5 dollars and then i just copied what he did on my other sites. this guy acts like he is getting paid 100 dollars; his name is "surfacing" in fiverr and you can copy what he does on your shared hosting account on your other sites. he increased my speed . . . i don't know, 300%. check him out, i tipped him 3 gigs cause he worked for like 3 days on my shit.

    W3 total Cache plugins helps to increase blog speed but despite it, your blog is taking much time to load then should talk with webhost.

    If that's the case, it sounds like it may be a hosting issue.

    You have a pagespeed score of 31/100. That's very slow.
    - Compressing the following resources with gzip could reduce their transfer size by 507.5KiB (75% reduction).
    - The host localrestaurantdirect.com should enable Keep-Alive. It serves the following resources.
    - The following cacheable resources have a short freshness lifetime. Specify an expiry of at least one week in the future for the following resources:

    You should try it yourself and try to fix it. I don't know if it's easy with wordpress. Another thing I use and easy to setup: cloudflare.com .

    Ditch the host. Have the new host transfer the cpanel for you.

    You might want to consider using a cache option to speed up the site load time; i have done a few test and the comparison can be seen over here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blogging/393520-cache-comparison-results-best-wordpress-cache.html

    Hope it is of help

    Your hosts server is overloaded, on a shitty connnection or both. 3.5 seconds to deliver the 1st byte from the page. 2.5 seconds to deliver the page.
    Find another hosting provider.
