Does your website take ages to load? Is your slow website causing a high bounce rate and poor ranking on Google?

DesignMantic share 16 reasons why your website is so slow in this infographic.

There are a couple of items on the list I’ll touch upon first.

With the use of large images becoming more widespread its important you optimise them. I’d recommend a WordPress plugin called WP Smush Pro for this.

And, if you haven’t enabled GZIP compression I’d recommend another WordPress plugin called Hummingbird. This will also minify your files giving you an extra speed boost.

Hope the infographic helps!
