Speed Test - Quick question :)



New Member
Hi Guys

could anyone tell my why my homepage loads much slower than a similar peers webpage?

Mine has

1. higher score on pingdom 91 vs 84
2. a quarter of the size 1.3mb vs 5.2mb
3. half the amount of requests 24 vs 45

but loads 3 times slower! 5.2 seconds v 1.5 seconds

It will heavily depend on the server/hosting you are using, DNS and on page/on site optimisations you are performing.

Page size, requests and 3rd party scores are only a part of the story so to speak. Hard to advise further without more informaiton and possibly the URL

Hi ,
You can find the root cause in the google page speed insight tool where this tool will help you to diagnose the mentioned errors while loading.

could be a slow database as well, but I would run my site on pagespeedinsights first and do the recommended fixes first
