I'm just curious about the load speeds of your sites. Do you mind sharing them here?
You can use any tools for website speed test. On this one I used this.
Your website seems very small size wise. Does it have no pictures?
Anyway, here's my result. I didn't fully optimize the blog just yet though. There are things that I can still improve to make the loading speed better but I am happy overall
It has but not that many. It's a blog site though. I have 3 articles there at the moment. Some previews and thumbnails and a lot of texts. It has only 2-3 ads. :/
Your speed is great!
It isn't running very fast, but then I have satellite internet. Nothing is very fast with it, so I am sure the speed is not that great. That is just one of the problems of using this type of internet. YOu will not have fast speeds.

I got this result and I am very surprised that my blog site obtained 92 performance grade, very happy and contented.
Seems like a lot of enters for me. Good job though!
That's because my page's size is not that big. It contains mostly articles and texts with a few low-res images here and there. I only have 2-3 ads. You're welcome by the way. ^_^
I think this is where using a minimalistic theme is advantageous. If there aren't so many objects displayed in the site then it would reduce the load time to complete loading the entire webpage. It's very inconvenient for some to not be able to navigate through a website just because some buttons are not yet loaded and the priority for loading is the promotions of the website too. I think it could be used as a advertisement strategy but that's just being cheap and unfair.
True. That is why it's better to have a simple theme rather than having a lot of HD resolution pictures and overlapping layouts. Lol.
Our blog is in Blogger and I consider it standard in speed. But I have been to some forums that are miserable in terms of webpage display. There are times that the webpage hangs or times out that the display is awry. But since I love those forums so I persevere by clicking reload/refresh and it displays normally most of the time. I'd say that speed of displaying the webpage is a factor in terms of traffic because some users don't have the patience to wait. Especially in forums that are for entertainment only, users would just come back anotther day, so to speak.
For me the loading time seems to be low due to the type of ads being used. I have also used the stopadblock. And that's another reason why I think it'd slow the system. So overall I am thinking that it's not going to be more than 80 for me. I have to also compress some of the css files. The reason being some websites and forums would be having many CSS changes and it needs to be minified. Either way it an be good for the forum and the blog loading speed.
Stopadblock? Is that a counter to the current adblock extension? It would also depend on how much images and previews your blog has. If they take up to 10mb, then it would probably slow down the loading time. Mostly if the images are in high definition.
I have been created a new website and still now working on that. Kindly check the down picture for website speed check:
I think the record is well.
Looks fine to me. Good job. But I think 6 seconds is kind of slow or it's just on the server used to test the speed. Hmm. But overall that is actually fine. Do you have a lot of images on your site?
Cool, but you need full optimization on this time, the load time is not up to the mark, but it's quite okay, if you have quality contest to compensate for that, but you need full optimization and if you have much images, then you need an image optimization, to improve the speed
Hi, I must say that my blog is much slower, its speed of loading is below yours. I haven't optimized it yet, I am still waiting to raise some money and raise the traffic on my blog before to do it. Your performance grade is really good, congratulation and keep up!
Hi wallet. Nah my site has small size that's why it loads faster. It only has some pictures and some thumbnails that's why the page size is kind of small as you can see. It's a blog too. Thank you and I hope that your site will be optimized and will get much traffic soon! Cheers!
I am not sure about this tool but more people said that it is not exact like gtmatrix.
For my site, it is very slow but I can not improve its speed because it is having too many images on my forums.
Anyway, I think I can buy a new server for my forum which can help to increase loading speed for it.
I think it has a standard speed because I haven't had a complaint from my readers and visitors of the loading time.But if there're ways one can improve the loading time.I wouldn't mind learning.
That's really nice to hear whenever you hear nothing such as complains. It makes you feel good and motivated. Does your blog have lots of pictures?
I know there are tools out there and I should probably check my site's speed not that I would know how to increase it. But it's good to know. Thanks for sharing the link. I bookmarked it.
No worries! I'm excited to see your results! If ever it loads slowly or has a small delay in response time, maybe because it has a lot of goodies inside! You've certainly impressed me when it comes to ideas and guides in blogging so I will be expecting your blog to have delayed response time and loading time.
I tried to check now and mine is : Load time 8.67 s
I think it is pretty slow and I am trying to improve its speed but not sure how I can.
That is the problem when you get to know the speed of your site. You will have a headache in thinking about the cause of the speed whether it is fast or slow. Unfortunately there are so many factors that affect the speed of the website. First is the choice between your website’s internet speed or the user’s internet speed. Next is the time of day that the server is busy at this hour but later on it is not so the speed will be faster. I guess there are more reasons but it’s up to you to research on it.
My website has a load time of 4.2 seconds. I have enabled varnish, redis, memcached and PHP-fpm on my PHP servers.
