    Hi guys, one of my websites has a blog that uses wordpress. Has maybe about 10 articles nothing crazy resource hogging, and yet it always takes 3-5 seconds to load a page. But yet all the other pages on the same site that are not wordpress load instantly. Any ideas on what could be causing this, I was thinking it may be the plugins but the only extras I have installed are jetpack, All In One WP Security, Category pagination fix, UpdraftPlus - Backup/Restore, W3 Total Cache, WooTumblog, WordPress SEO, WP-Optimize

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    - use default theme to check if it's caused by the theme you use
    - you can give a try the plugin called P3 (Plugin Performance Profiler) to see which plugins are slowing down your website
    - disable all plugins and enable one by one & check to find out which one is slowing down your website

    probably the size of your images is slowing it down. If you have videos, even worse.

    probably its bugs, try delete your plugins and reinstall, if you have plugins removed before, install it and then delete

    It may be due to heavy theme or no. of plug-ins you have installed. Try with basic theme and low plug-ins to check whether it is the main issue or it could be due to hosting.

    Did you check you CSS and website internal files.

    And then, you may ask to hosting support. I think you got some hosting problem only.

    If your Wordpress site is loading slow, these may be the probable things:


    1. Heavy Page (Full of big Size images, content)
    2. Database is loaded with uncountable images
    3. Hosting Plan You Have
    4. Inappropriate Plugins
    5. Inappropriate Theme

    Thanks

    Yup, Hostgator sucks for wordpress lol, I'm sure Incapsula will help you improving the load time, check them out. Also see if any of your plugins is using too much resourses :)

    Run P3 to see if any of the plugins are slowing you down. Try wp smush.it and EWWW Image Optimizer to compress images more.

    I had an issue running a G fonts plugin that was causing my pages to take over 10 seconds to load.
