RE: Good score but realllllly slow load time?
Just so we're all looking at the same test: http://www.webpagetest.org/result/140410...65dad55f6/


It's mostly from really bad server performance serving the base page (and the redirect) but there's quite a bit that can be done to make it better.

1 - Quit using wordpress to redirect from http://www.viridisdesignstudio.com to viridisdesignstudio.com. Put the redirect into the .htaccess directly instead, that way it will happen a LOT faster.

2 - Fix the wordpress first byte performance problem. We can't see what's causing it from the outside but odds are it's because of the hosting provider and plan they are on and it's coming from slow database performance. You can use a caching plugin (W3 total cache or WP supercache) to hide the issue but it will still be there. You can try disabling all of the plugins to see if it's a specific plugin but it's likely coming from the database performance itself and getting better hosting is probably the best solution.

3 - That's a LOT of separate css and js files being loaded. They need to be combined somewhat so it doesn't take so many round trips to load them (a plugin like W3 total cache can help automate that for you as well).
