Understanding my results: slow load times

RE: Understanding my results: slow load times
I couldn't replicate the long 20-30s load times so I can't say what was causing that (whether it was the FBT or further along the waterfall). However I'd recommend installing a page caching plugin such as Super Cache, W3 Total Cache to help to reduce the first byte time. If properly configured correctly it should make a significant difference for most users.

The second main issue is the fade in transition between pages. The page can actually begin to render a lot sooner than it currently is. Right now it looks like it's waiting for all the resources to load before rendering the page. This should help to make the website appear to load a lot quicker for users but won't affect the overall load time.

Optimizing the images as per above recommendations will also help.

If you still have a lot of variability in the load time (especially for the FBT) when browsing the site after making the above changes, then upgrading to a faster should address this.
