I thought maybe someone knowledgeable can help. I'm always concerned about my sites' speeds, but one of the sites is just puzzling to me. I don't get it.
Here are the stats for the site:
- Managed dedicated server
- CloudFlare Pro Plan, fully optimized
- MaxCDN enabled
- One of the fastest WP magazine themes, with additional speed optimizations
- All possible WP speed optimizations
- Mobile optimized
I get (A) 96% on GTMetrix and (A) 92% with YSlow. Page size 2MB, requests ~110.
Why the hell is my page loading speed is 9seconds (according to GTMetrix), 5seconds according to WebPageTest and 5 seconds according to Pingdom?!!!
What's going on!? PLEASE HELP. I've done everything I could, and it's still not enough. I'm puzzled.
