No Idea What Site Is Doing For First 8 Seconds - bryandavidcohen - 10-23-2015 08:46 AM

I've optimized my images and upgraded my server.

Looking at my Waterfall, I have no idea what the site is doing for the first 8 seconds. Is this a theme problem? A problem with my WordPress install? No idea.

I appreciate any help you can give.

Alright, I've determined that if I fail to include the "www" or the "/" at the end, my page is 4 seconds slower.

Why does it add so much time for my redirect? Do I have something set up incorrectly?

My guess is that you are letting wordpress do the redirect.

It should be done in your .htaccess file or in the virtual host area of the httpd.conf file.
