First time poster here. I’ve been looking around for a solution. I’m using the Metro Theme child theme. I expected way better load times with genesis but it seems my homepage is long to load because of the images (for example the 700×400 features post image).
I was wondering if there’s a way around that :Shttp://macgamerhq.com
Generally you’ll find Genesis loads very fast but shared hosting can ruin that.
Use a CDN
I already have a managed hosting which is very fast.
I want to make it even faster but from what I can see on speed tests, on the homepage, the site will load the full images even if the actual size showed is 10 times smaller.
That’s what I would like to avoid :S
Your images aren’t really contributing that much to your load from what I can see.
You have 3x 302 redirects which are harming you and a lot of external resources. Disqus and your ads seem to be hurting. You could specify better caching although the ads and disqus won’t cache.
You also have quite a few fonts, you could reduce to a couple to help improve.
Thanks for the feedback man. I have since removed the ads, didn’t bring that much money anyway… However I do not know how I could decrease Fonts. :S
