    It has been like this for long now – my websites take ages to load and it is becoming a major issue! I am in contact with the server host and before at least they didn’t see any problems (have had one of the websites for two years now). But something is a problem and I cannot figure out what!

    These are my websites:

    http://www.e-businessguide.eu

    http://www.e-businessforum.se

    http://www.p2psummit.eu

    I attach them so anyone interested can see and MAYBE give me a suggesttion on WHY they are so slow? Three different themes, three different set ups, one server host. Can it be any interference bewteen Genesis/themes and something? I have though different plug ins on different sites.

    Thank you!

    I ran Sucuri.net on your websites and this is what I found:

    http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/www.e-businessguide.eu – 1) this site has an outdated version of WordPress. 2) You have a lot of scripts running on this one which could be slowing you down.

    http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/www.e-businessforum.se – 1) You have a lot of scripts running on this one as well.

    http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/www.p2psummit.eu – 1) You have a lot of scripts running on this one as well.

    Some things to take a look at:

    1) Have you run a Database Optimizer on your websites to clean up your database? If not, here is the plugin I use – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-database-optimizer/.

    2) Are you saving “Revisions” in the database? If so, how many? Do you need all of them? Try to limit the revisions, if necessary, to about 2 or 3.

    Try a couple of these, but I think if you run the Optimizer, you will see it speed up.

    Thank you!

    I ran this by my “IT-guy” and this is not the problem. I cannot understand what it might be! A true mystery.. I would be very happy with any suggestions!

    Not sure how much experience your IT-guy has but you should run the database optimizer for sure, just a suggestion. I am using all Genesis themes including the ones your three websites are using and I don’t have a “slow load” problem. I’ll unsubscribe from this topic and let someone else chime in here. Good luck.

    Just my two cents and not trying to be combative, but if your IT guys says that “such and such” isn’t the problem but also can’t identify what the problem is, time to look for a new IT guy. The Genesis framework certainly isn’t the issue.

    Thank you for the respons. I am not making my “IT-guy” justice here, simply because I do not know the lingo. He has done extensive research placing my websites on different servers, run diagnostic tests, removed plug-ins, changed theme and now we use the short term solution cache.

    It seems my websites are too “heavy” possibly for the server solution I have (www.loopia.se) – which of course is odd in its self in my view, thousands must be using the type websites I have also in Sweden but..

    Anyhow – thank you for any constructive ideas.

    That is why I suggested using the Database Optimizer. It will go in there and clean out a lot of stuff you don’t need and will “refresh” the database so it’s pulling the information properly.

    I just went to http://e-businessguide.eu/ and it loaded really fast for me.

    Yes, we chose to use to cache the sites (do you say that in english) until we figure out a better solution
