    You should first of all change to a new server/web hosting possibly bluehost or Hostgator.

    Even on a fast server the overall page size is greater than 1.5MB. This is what takes most of the time before anything is displayed.

    Replace your PNG images with JPGs and optimise their size. Your four main images are 343KB, 274KB, 222KB and 180KB. The JPG equivalent file size could easily be reduced by 90%.

    Validate and eliminate the HTML errors using:

    No quick fix unfortunately and eliminating the above three points are going to keep you very busy

    Pamela,

    There are a few other things you can do that will bring about a dramatic change. You can enable compression of files that are requested by the browser when the page loads. You can do this by modifying your .htaccess or web.config file on your server. Specifically for .htaccess, you will want to enable g-zip compression (Apache 1.3 or lower) or mod_deflate for higher versions of Apache.
    More on how to do that here,
    http://www.whileifblog.com/2012/03/2...-and-htaccess/
    You can also combine images into CSS sprites. Note that not all images are ideal candidates for sprites but those served together on a regular basis are.

    Here is a great website that will do it for you and also create the CSS code,

    http://spritepad.wearekiss.com/

    You can also leverage browser caching for cachable resources and minify JS files.

    Hope that helps,

    Shawn

    Ya, John_Betong , good point but i have doubt this HTML validation can help in Site speed. Actually Google is not HTML validated. Even though thank you.

    IMHO, having valid markup is the best thing you can do to help prevent unexpected rendering problems - most noticeable in browsers you haven't tested for
    Having valid markup won't speed up the HTTP response, but it may very well speed up the rendering of the page once the browser gets the response.

    Today I partially optimised a site and ran some tests. I ran short of time so the optimisation is only about 95%

    Details and further information on the thread can be found here:

    http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/show...45#post5373445



    Tested the results using "Google Webmaster Tools/Health/Fetch as Google":

    # Original
    // "http://www.johns-jokes.com/downloads/sp-b/drumdr/index-original.php"
    Download Time (in milliseconds): 322

    HTTP/1.1 200 OK
    Date: Thu, 28 Mar 2013 14:51:02 GMT
    Server: Apache
    X-Powered-By: PHP/5.3.13
    Vary: Accept-Encoding
    Content-Encoding: gzip
    Content-Length: 20342
    Connection: close
    Content-Type: text/html

    # 95% optimised
    // "http://www.johns-jokes.com/downloads/sp-b/drumdr/index-jb.php"
    Download Time (in milliseconds): 273

    HTTP/1.1 200 OK

    Vary: Accept-Encoding
    Content-Encoding: gzip
    Content-Length: 16945
    Connection: close
    Content-Type: text/html
    Looks like I saved 49 milliseconds which could be equated to an 15% improvement?
