Take a Mobile Website Speed Test
The first thing you need to do is test your website using Google’s Free Mobile Website Speed Test. Our first test on this WordPress theme did not deliver happy faces. In fact, it showed that our mobile speed was over 20 seconds. We immediately eliminated a few elements from the home page theme, and cut it down to 12-15 seconds. That’s still not satisfactory.
We also had an orange circle loading on this theme’s home page. We didn’t like it. We imagined it could slow things down even more.
Sure enough, once we found where to disable that feature, we cut our load time down to 6 seconds!!
