Huge problem with 2 websites

RE: Huge problem with 2 websites
I'll second Joseph's recommendation to get page Speed Insights. In addition to running it online like Joseph reccomends, you can also get a plug-in for Chrome from here.

Once you have the plugin installed, hit F12 to bring up the developer tools. You will see a tab called "PageSpeed" in the lower console, so click on it. Then there will be a button that says something like "Analyze Page", and click it.

I did run the tool against the second site that you mentioned. One of the top recommendations was to losslessly compress the images on the sight. PageSpeed is saying this will save about 425 KB on the sight, about 1/3 of the total bytes the site is requiring. The cool thing about the Chome plugin is that it will actually do the compression right in the plugin so you can just download the optimized image to your hard drive and then go upload it to your site. There are websites that do all this too, but the nice thing is its all built in for you right there.

It looks like you are also using the unminified versions of some of your libraries. For example, you are loading jQuery UI from the jQuery CDN, but the unminified version. Change to and you will load the minified version, again saving some bytes.

Finally, it looks like you are loading three different versions of the jQuery library (lines 24, 1658 and 2718) in your file. You should be doing just one, not just to save download bandwidth, but the browser has to parse each one of these files.

I would start there and then see where I was at.
