WordPress website running slow?
A chief complaint I come across from WordPress users is, “My website is so slow!” And they are right. Their sites take 5-10 seconds to load. That’s way too long.
Back in 2010, Google said that websites should load in two seconds or less, and a 2009 survey found that “47 percent of consumers expect a web page to load in two seconds or less.” On top of that, “40 percent of consumers will wait no more than three seconds for a web page to render before abandoning the site.” See more info about this study in the article “How Fast Should A Website Load in 2016?”
So, you’ve probably done the one thing everyone recommends — installed a caching plugin.
Probably something like, W3 Total Cache or WP Super Cache, which did help a bit, but it’s still taking over two seconds to load.
