How do you fix a slow website?
Here's a shortlist:-
Web browsers block external CSS files before displaying content to the visual screen. This incurs additional network latency and increases the time it takes to show the content to the visitor.

Properly formatting and compressing images can save many bytes of data. By keeping image sizes to a minimum to reduce the amount of time a user is waiting for resources to load, this saves time for vistitors on slower connections.
Many web servers can compress files in gzip format before sending them for download, either by calling a third-party module or using built-in routines. This can reduce the amount of time it takes to download the resources needed to render your web site.
Compressing website CSS code can save many bytes of data and speed up download and parse times.
Prioritize visible content
If the amount of data required exceeds the initial congestion window, it will require additional round trips between your server and the visitor’s web browser. For users on networks with high latencies such as mobile networks this can cause significant delays to page loading.

Reduce Server Response Time
Web server response time measures how long it takes to load the necessary HTML to begin rendering the page from your web server, subtracting out the network latency between Google and your web server. There may be variance from one run to the next, but the differences should not be too large. In fact, highly variable web server response time may indicate an underlying performance issue.
Many of our page speed clients are generally unaware that it's actually their website that is slow! They will say:-
"Oh, I thought it was my ISP that was causing websites to load slowly....", or "Really, I thought that's something I was not in control of..." or "I relied on my web designer to tell me these things which they never mentioned..."
Here at Browserweb, we do a lot of work speeding up websites, from html websites to the more popular content management driven websites.
