Hi guys, the main problem is something called csi.gstatic.com (it shows it as been the slowest loading script).

I know warrior forum has smart people, can anyone give me just a shread of help in laymans terms.

I don't have PHP knowledge so any other advice at all would be most appreciated.


Thanks.

    If you don`t have knowledge, don`t try to tweak the files yourself. I`ve tried that when I was a learner and got my self the website not to work. I don`t know exactly what the script does but if it`s a template script change the template with a simpler one and if it`s a plugin or sumthing installed by yourself,

    If you don't know much about websites it's better go for a basic website with no flash or any fancy plug ins..I went to your site & it took like 1 minute to load your page. I don't think any of yours potential customer would wait that long...

  • Byron,

    I wouldn’t worry too much about the script. You can focus on some other things to speed up the site. I ran your URL through Google’s page speed analyzer and it only got a 78 out of 100. You can start by changing the size of your images. You have large images that are being made smaller by the browser when rendered on the page. If you make the dimensions in the image file the same what they will be on screen, they will load faster.

    Also, you can leverage browser caching by setting an expiration date for resources on the page. These would be things like scripts, images and other external files. When an expiration date is not set (for example 6 months or 1 year) then the browser will request a copy of that external file every time a page loads. If the resource (say a CSS file or image) has not changed, there is no reason for the browser to go get it again. So if you don’t change your files a lot, you can set long expiration date in the future.

    Here is a pretty good tool on how to do that,

    here is the google page speed analyzer. It gives lots of useful tips on how to tweak your site to be faster,

    Hope that helps,

    Find the script that calls for csi.gstatic.com and cancel it. If you would search for it, you'd see that you're not the only one experiencing problems with it. It's a Google resource URL, and apparently it's usage is over it's limits.
