    Can anybody explain why my site takes so long to load?

    Thanks in advance


    Your site is too big. It has an overall size of over 2,5 MB!!! Everything over 1 MB causes slow loading times, something between 200kb-600kb is perfect.

    I made a screenshot (file size analysing tool):


    Hey Dude

    Before you replied i uploaded all my images to flickr and linked them to the site, so it’s actually a faster now, the only thing thats left is the intro pictures.

    I can resize the intro pictures, but is there a way to resize the scripts or do you have any other advice?

    also is a forward of does that slow the site down as well?

    thanks in advance


    You can activate gzip compression on your server. It reduces the js and css file size dramatically (over 50% in most cases).

    Yes – if you forward a site it always increases loading time (request to server, redirection, other requests, etc.)


    My host doesn’t support any form for compression sadly.

    Thank you for your advice


    Glad that I could help you :)
