    Hi,

    I have a high bounce rate on my website and I am traying to reduce it by optimizing the theme (among other things).

    My current score on gtmetrix is:

    Pagespeed: 62
    Yslow: 52
    Load time: 9.5 seconds

    Could you please advise on how to accelerate the theme?

    Thanks,
    Walid

    hi walidkh, i try to test our website. from php standpoint its already quite optimized.
    so now what you need to optimized is your server. for example optimized .htaccess so it can cache your static file and gzip your html response. or maybe use faster server.

    Thank you

    hi walidkh, on our demo, we use :

    1. Akismet
    2. Contact Form 7
    3. Goo.gl
    4. Jmagz Plugin
    5. JPlugin
    6. Regenerate Thumbnails
    7. WooCommerce
    8. WordPress Popular Posts
    9. WPBakery Visual Composer

    yes plugin impacting load time for sure. you can try to reduce number of plugin you install. WooCommerce is kind of heavy plugin, it you don’t really need it. you can disable WooCommerce.

    Thank you
