    Website speed test said 51s?!?!?

    I just Googled a website speed test website and it said my website took 51s to load

    I have tested alot of competitions websites and they are low low low (around 1-3s). How can I check to see whats slowing me down? This has to be hurting me especially if Google knows.

    I also noticed in my Analytics it said "Reduce server response time" under the "Site Speed" tab... Not sure where to start?

    Use the network tab in Firebug (a plug-in for Firefox). It'll show you all the interactions with the server and how much time they take. Off the bat, y ou've got two missing files that take some time to not find: menystyle.css and atc.gif. This page has TONS of stylesheets and JS to include - do you actually need all that?

    I noticed it takes a while until the server itself responds (i. e. before the actual site content is loading). You might need to find a better hosting company or upgrade your plan.

    Also wouldn't hurt to correct the coding errors:

    CSS

    HTML

    Might also try reducing image file sizes.

    Ya everywhere I have looked (including Webmaster Tools) says caching is a big prob. Is Super Cache the best?
