I already have a page for Djembe Repair and Tabla Repair (the two most popular drums I'm likely to repair). I'm definitely thinking of moving the histories specific to these drums from my Drum Repair Histories page to their relative Repair pages. I would then add a Doumbek Repair and a Frame Drum Repair (the two next most popular drums I'm likely to repair) page to which I would migrate the appropriate content from the Histories page. Hopefully, the traffic to my Histories page I would lose would be picked up by the Repair pages.
This is just a thought for now.
In the mean time, I've taken a closer look at Google Analytics and have come to realize that the 18+ second page load time is an AVERAGE and was due to ONE really lousy day. The average has now dropped to 9+ seconds.
I've also discovered Google's PageSpeed Insights, which analyzes your pages and offers extremely specific suggestions for improvement. Thanks to this tool, I've learned that I can reduce my thumbnails' file size by 50% or more without reducing their quality. That's huge! This is what I'm currently working on, and I intend to follow up on all appropriate suggestions.
I agree. Personally, you have to get me to swallow the hook to get me to keep scrolling and scrolling. For this reason, I'm sure that eventually I will probably break this page down eventually, even if the efforts I mention above work to perfection.
Your feedback is very much appreciated.
