  • Hey Atinder S Gill,
    I have observed that, mostly WordPress themes and unwanted plugin widgets are taking too much time to load. There is WordPress plugin called Theme Authenticity Checker that helps us to check theme for any code that may affect our blog.

    I am agree with your fourth point, that using popup ads also increase blog loading time. Thanks for this great post.

  • We use Gtmetrix and Google Page Speed Insights to optimize our website. I recommend a blog should be loaded in less than 2 seconds.Adding the scripts to the end of the body will help improve loading speeds.
