    Hard to say without knowing what elements you are using for your page. But generally, site builders like Wix are going to be slower.(edited - posting url not permitted)

    I think you mean the website loading speed. For a start, visit Gtmetrix and enter your site. This will show you what needs to be optimized. Since Wix is a hosted solution, I'm not sure there is a lot you can do.

    That is WAY too long indeed, and WIX being a hosted solution there's not much that can be done and all I can say if one wants to go for page loading speed, which is a great SEO factor and great on the COMPETITIVE side as well, I'd say do not go for wix and all the like. If you want CONTROL on page load speed you must have control in all settings to speed up the site, including server's settings in a way or another. There exists great MANAGED WordPress hosting providers, however I'm the #1 fan to self-hosted solution, always, but that can also be managed as well so you don't need to be a sysadmin to have a fast running website.

    That said, since you have built your site on that platform already, there are several tools that you can use to check on the page load speed that will tell exactly where you need to improve. So even though you're on a hosted solution there may be a few elements that you have added to the site that can be optimized, on which you could do something.

    You can also use this excellent tool from Gossammer Thread or even Pingdom Tools

    That should be useful to let you know where you need to improve, well, where you can since you have limited control on many elements.

      There should be no issue moving to WordPress re Google Adsense, and this will also give you more control over server and plugins etc to help speed up the website. Wix is great for people new to web design etc but doesnt really give you any overall probably a good move making the switch

    In most cases adding lots of images,animations and other heavy components to your site causes slow loading time of your site.

    You might want to contact your host. It might be a temporary issue. Varnish Cache helps load websites lightning fast. You can also try to do tracert to your server if you know the host name or IP. I am not sure if you have those info being that it is a hosted solution.

  • Browser cache a lot of information like images, Stylesheet, Javascript and etc.,
    Some reasons for slow page load speed are:
    Too many plugins, use lots of images, landing page redirects, outdated CMS, extra large images.
