    Your home page size is 1.3MB

    Also it is a wix site. These are notoriously crazy slow.

    You can see that it is wix from the source code.
    Try reducing the file size of your big image in the middle of the page. Photoshop does this well when you do the Save for Web and Devices and keeps the quality good.

    It also looks like it is loading some kind of mp3 audio plugin. If you don't have audio on the site I would see if you can disable that.

    Hope that helps.

      I will have to ask my friend who made it for me- he did it free

      What if I save it as a png? Do you think that would help?

    Maybe, but just changing the format may not help very much. Photoshop (and probably other programs) do a good job at compressing the image for web.

    I also noticed in your source that it references the main wix domain a lot, and also has a lot of java script running. This probably has more to do with the slowness than the image file.

    I am not real familiar with wix, but it may be better to just recreate the site and host the entire thing on your hosting account. It should be really easy to do since you don't have a lot of content on the site.

    Just let me know if you need any help.

    Thanks
    Jason

        Well... It's good you have a website up. The problem is, you don't control this site. Your friend doesn't either. You can change their core code, you can't even hire someone like me to fix it for you. Ultimately, you're going to need a new website if you're wanting to have more control over load times and search engine results.

        Wix seems like such a good option, until you start learning more about how it works. Learning experience, ey?

        You might be able to find some really cheap options in the warrior for hire area.

          I realized I couldn't add java script when I tried installing a re-direct code for a mobile website. I had a programmer contact wix's programmers directly and it took them almost a week to get back to us.

          Fancy, shiny packages that seem too good to be true, usually are!

          I am speaking with a fellow warrior who is going to help me create a band new website altogether when the time is right.

          Thanks to everyone who has given me input

    Yeah it is pulling crap loads of java from the main wix domain.

    Just awesome… Best thing I did was take away some extra widgets I had.. one was a box.net widget, I just got rid of it, and now the site loads in like 1-2 seconds (as opposed to 15-20)… Wicked.
    (For Box.net, I can just make a post an link to the file when I want to distribute eBooks)..
