    Use http://gtmetrix.com/ or something similar to test your site speed and then see their suggestions according to the results from the test.

    What kind of server are your sites hosted on? You might need to get your own dedicated server if you have lots of traffic coming in.

    I use this tool to make my images really small in size: https://kraken.io/

    Use this tool to see what is making your site so long to open: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/

    use RIOT for image compression.
    read about Caching, CDN, Gzip compression and so on.
    For wordpress there exist plugins for most of these things.

    Also Cloudflare (CDN) can help.

    Then another big reason can be Database, read about database optimization

    +1 for this

    I found http://www.webpagetest.org/ to be the best speedtest out there (at least from those that I know)

    The culprit is whether your site optimizing problem, hosting problem or both.

    GTmetrix & Pingdom are good to see what are the problem with your site speed.
    If above optimizing well and good, it's cause from your hosting.

    Most of the time, the culprit is either a high wait time (your web host), a high receive time (large files), or a poorly-optimised site that loads hundreds of codes.

    Compress your images and install a cache plugin like W3 Total Cache. Images are a big part of websites not loading right so delete media stored that you don't need. Also delete unwanted themes via FTP.
