    Hey guys I'm havinf alot of trouble with the Pageload from my website that uses Wordpress.
    I have following plugins installed for speeding up page load.

    Quik cache
    W3 Total Cache
    CSS And Script File Aggregation

    But after using Woorank to check my site stats I saw a minus at page speed load.
    [h=3]Load Time[/h]
    3.38 second(s) (15.38 Kb/s)





    woorank stats

    Pingdom Page Speed test (http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/) says your site's homepage is 1.6 megabytes. This MUST be corrected - basically, look for large images that can be resized/compressed, combine all Javascript in one file, etc. It seems that your main trouble with the page loading speed is exactly this. For example, my main site is 407 kilobytes and loads in about 1 sec. Sort this out, and your problem will go away.

    Page size
    1.1MB
    Load time
    1.26s
    Requests
    104

    ^ That's what I got for one of my websites when I tested it. Even if the filesize is large, e.g., over 1MB, you can still have a very fast loading site for the most part. I have a 500KB site that takes over 5 seconds to load.

    I just checked your site stats:
    [TR="class: netRow netSummaryRow focusRow outerFocusRow"] [/TR]
    109 requests --> 1.4 MB in size
    Here are few points that can help you lower your website size:

    1) Minify your CSS and JS
    2) Optimize your images
    3) Combine different images in 1 CSS sprite
    4) Minify html
    5) Enable Compression


    Their are lot's of other thing points but for now, just work on those and it should lower your website size by atleast 30-40%

    Tbh, I didn't realise notice a slow loading time at all
    My internet bank must be 10x slower than that and I still stick around to wait for the next page....
    Maybe that's cause I have to though, ha :)
