Need help speeding up site WordPress

  • REFUNDED

I designed a site for a client that is a custom theme WP site. Everything is great, except it is soooooo slow. I need to make it ALOT fast QUICKLY. My client is hounding me and I have no time in the next few days. I am doing the work for him for free, but would happily pay someone $50.

I have installed W3 cache and set up a CDN network and uploaded all the files to that, however it is still slow. I know that I need to minify the javascript by adding each script to the W3 admin. Same goes for the CSS.. which could be cleaned up. It is a little all over the show since it was not only my first WP site, but a 100% custom theme.

Anyhow, I went back to school recently and am in the middle of a crazy week of finals and can't take any more time to fix this. I need a master, a guru, who knows exactly what they are doing to get this site optimized for me.

It is currently hosted on GoDaddy, but I have also set up and transferred the site to Bluehost to see if that would help. It didn't seem to.

I am now getting so tired that I am causing problems instead of fixing them. If anyone can jump in here and do this for me I will happily pay them $50. If you think it would take more time than $50 is worth, please quote me. It could end up leading to more work for you too, as I subcontract a lot of work out.

THE ONE KEY FACTOR IS THAT IT BE DONE BY TOMORROW!!! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.

Thanks all. Hope this works out.

Buzu B answers:

Can you post the url to see how slow it really is and how hard it would be to improve it?

Victor Teixeira answers:

Hi, you need to provide the site url so someone can see it.
The speed problem can have different causes.

If i were chosen this is what i would have done:

1. Optimized the images [reduces a lot of loading time]
2. Optimized the java and mostly use codes from that which are hosted on google [for better loading times]
3. Optimize the css + php file for better speed.
4. Plugins usually take a lot of time to load their files [e.g. css] which need to be optimized.

I do not have the time to complete it tomorrow and anytime in the next 10 days.
I hope the person you select does some of the above to speedup

I've found that unless you are using a really high quality CDN, then it in fact slows your site down greatly.

If not using a premium CDN, but a free one, disable CDN, and activate css/html minify from the w3 cache settings.
