    After optimizing my site using different plugins and other things I improve my score in GTMetrix but a lot, but still have pathetic load speed of 4.3s
    [​IMG]

    After changing themes I'm 100% sure my current theme is the one causing the slow speed. I tried multiple themes and even found one that gave me a speed of .90ms but it made my site looks real ugly, all of them did. Could you please recommend me a fast loading theme that also looks decent? Thank you. And I promise that this will be my last thread regarding this issue.

    Schema was slow, I tried it. I tried most of the "fastest" themes all suck or look ugly.

    Did you try compressing your images and deleting old themes? Before changing themes make sure you go through all steps of optimization and install a nice cache plugin.

    I just wrote a 2000+ article on my site about why binary options are a big fat scam but I'll help you anyways..

    Have you tried using Cloudflare (which is free)? Maybe use a good looking theme that isn't too slow and use Cloudflare to speed up your site.

    Take a look at PointPro Blog.

    And keep in mind that a dedicated ssd hosting is pretty much mandatory if you are looking for a fast loading website.

    This. I'd be willing to bet money that it's not the theme but the images causing the slow speed.

    Use https://tinypng.com/ to compress your images properly.

    They also have a WP plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/tiny-compress-images/
