Hi Guys,

I have purchased couple of responsive templates. As you all aware that site loading speed plays a very big role in SEO. The templates which I bought are loading at a very slow rate. When I asked the author I have not received any advice or suggestion or solution from him.

Kindly advice how can I increase the site speed.

Thank you so much for your replies.

Put javascript links at the bottom of the body, right before the closing of the body tag. Btw, loading isn’t the same as showing content. If the content is shown and images are loading (for example) it is already loaded. Don’t use 124134 google fonts. To check what’s been bugging the loading speed go to Chrome > Right Click > Inspect Element > Network tab and refresh the page.

Hi Aleluja,

First i would like to thank you for your time in replying my post. And I am really sorry, by mistake instead of site loading speed is “very low” i have put “very high”.

Anyway, coming to the subject. the website is loading slowly including content part. Any way i will check the suggestion you gave me for chrome.

Site speed could be affected by a lot of things :
  • how good your hosting is.
  • if you have global reach perhaps invest in a CDN.
  • you could look at caching options , to serve content that is not too dynamic in nature
  • etc

Of course it can also be related to how the theme was coded.
