Hi hackers, any Wordpress experts who know how to optimize a WP site for speed? Have been playing around with the plugins but doesn't seem to do the trick. Thanks!
Seems like the answer is right there in your screenshot - 191 requests is quite a lot. Try reducing it and also reducing the page size from 4MB to 1-2MB.
You can also check the GTMetrix recommendations in the YSlow tab for more specific info..
If your page size is dictated by size of images used, then I recommend watching this tutorial video that explains image size optimization tricks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzzuvTEbORs
