    Thank you so much for this Jill! I got reallllly fixated on that F grade for a few days and then pulled on my big girl panties, moved hosts and got to work knocking down the things dragging my site. So far, I’ve knocked around 3 seconds off my load time and reduced by page size by about 1 MB, but I have some really big image issues I have to tackle before I see any big improvements. Also, I’m TOTALLY adding a tracker to my (insane) blog planner. What a great idea.

    After our major upset with Google late last year, I went back and checked to optimise images and make sure most were most were the right size, but I still need to work on some of these. After our new theme was installed I did a trial across the three testers you recommend for speed (In Safari and Chrome). I am beginning to wonder where the speed issues are for us. Pingdom brings me in at 2.6 every time (San Jose) Safari and 2.59 Chrome, and at 6 seconds from the Melbourne server, GMetrix on an Canadian server puts us at 13 seconds (Safari) or 7.2 (Chrome) and Webpagetest 4.5 to 6.6 for both browsers. I am working with my hose (Rochen) to see if I can add some code to extend the time before browsers refresh.
