Last weekend I was wasting time on my Blog performance and all I got is 10 sec. and this lousy post.
Quick profiling with
FireBug and YSlow FireFox extensions have done great wonders with my amazingly slow, not-really-that-interesting, hosted ( webhost4life) WordPress blog.
Main action items:
I have removed the sitemeter performance penalty widget I have installed the WordPress Super Cache Plug-in which wasn’t that simple with my webhost4life hosting limitations. I have removed couple of images and reduce the blog top image size from 80k to 5k (!!!)
Main blog page returns after ~1 sec. I am still getting a lousy grade with the YSlow tests (62) but it seems like the YSlow blog post announcement have failed too… (57 :) Post pages are still slow (~2-4 sec.) but I know what I have to do the next time more than 1 million readers will complain…
