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.
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.

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.
