Incredibly slow site

RE: Incredibly slow site
I see you've already fixed this... Your site tests much better now. But here's my analysis of the test you posted.

You are loading over 3 MEGAbytes. How fast do you expect that to load? That is equivalent to a three minute music piece in mp3 format!

You have a ton of image glut coming from google maps. Even if you scale these small in the script, the byte load of the entire image still loads on browsers.

You have several jpg images you need to optimize.

Image breakdown here.

Leverage browser caching of static assets via htaccess file. Article on that here.

I always use either IE 10 or 11 for testing, to get the extra IE compliance out of the way. Here's your site tested the right way.


Do you really need 3 MEGAbytes of glut? You might consider rethinking your design. This page is going to give fits to anyone on slower connections like DSL and dialup.

(Glad to see you came to that conclusion as well, I see your site is now down to a more svelte 660 KILObytes.)
