    • Hashim,

      Great question! And, in fact, I’m glad you brought this up as it’s a terrific learning opportunity about what contributes to site speed.

      If you look at the link you posted, you can see that the waterfall shows each object being loaded on the page, where it’s coming from, and how much it is contributing to the overall load time. Notice how all of the objects loading from are lightning quick?

      The issue here is actually objects from third-party sites. Examples include and and there are others. The Analytics code, in particular, isn’t even fully loading. The same is true for a video code. That causes unnecessary lag times. A clean, streamlined site with under 100 objects and a relatively small memory footprint, as Copyblogger has, should not take any longer than a second to load. And this is where it is SO important to go through themes with a fine-tooth comb and ensure that there are no unnecessary or broken links being loaded.

  1. The new site looks great! I have purchased plenty from StudioPress in the past and excited to do so again in the future. Congrats to Brian et al.
