    I would not pay attention to ranking sites. they ask you to install plugins that are spyware. Like WOT . You can manage this sort of thing from google webmaster tools .

    If you are using flash of any type, that will slow the site. Large images that weigh over 600k . Conflicting css or html tags will cause it to slow as well. If you have many http requests for content hosted outside the site, like widgets and chat boxes or mp3 players. Using embed tags instead of putting it into a frame will also slow the site.

    Install firebug and look at what is being loaded.

    • Turn off analytics and don't have the "who's online" to refresh
    • Use eaccelerator or similiar

    At the very least, you should have your main landing page served from cache. Update it every hour or whatever.

    interesting site. thx phreak.

    cleaning up four versions of jquery - that might be a start. might as well point them all to (82.6KiB)

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    Check your site with free pingdom tools

    This gives your page load speed, plus an analysis of what gets loaded with your page and how long it takes.

    Checking the Performance Grade tab gives suggestions as to how you could speed things up.

    My site load time was significantly increased after I set up Cloud Flare CDN.

    Interesting. My experience with Cloudflare was rather underwhelming. While the speed was indeed faster when it worked, I experienced a lot of 502 errors due to problems with their servers. Also Google webmaster tools reported several crawling issues which all disappeared after switching it off.

    Anyways: I usually use Google Page Speed to analyse my load speed:

    Different strokes and all that, I guess.

    Haven't had much in the way of 502 errors, and certainly not enough to offset the speed gain.

    Perhaps if I had the time I could independently achieve a lot of the benefits Cloud Flare give our site, but I like that they do it for me.

    Our forum is pretty niche, so we're not really bothered about whether or not we get into Google or whatever.

    @HalfCat @whu606 when i use the Cloud Flare i had the Google crawling issues. and tracking app like google analys, histats, Alexa cant track site trafic.

  • What do you mean by "can't track site traffic"?

  • ChanuxChanux Admin of ✭✭

    @HalfCat normally i had 10000 daily visitors. but after transfer to Cloud Flare, traffic app (google analys, histats) displayed 4000 daily visitors. and Alexa rank decreased too.

    I gave cloud flare a try and also and received lots of 502 errors and significantly slower performance with Vanilla. However, it sped up my shopping cart software a lot, but wasn't worth all the errors and slowness with Vanilla.

    Perhaps I had something configured incorrectly, but it seemed to problematic for a site that needs 99% uptime.
