      I’m pretty much out of ideas on how to speed up my client’s website. I’ve compressed, optimized, cached, everything. The site is still slow. It’s so slow that it’s affecting the ability of Google to index the site and it’s affecting site SEO negatively in other ways. Please, is there any way the template can be optimized to load more quickly?

      I reviewed your site, it have a good score. You can do some thing more:
      – Turn off Less option: http://prntscr.com/hhjvl6 . I did it. I you want to change color, regenerate your style.css, you can enable it then disable it when you finish
      – Select the appropriate image size http://prntscr.com/hhjwyx can help you save more time http://prntscr.com/hhjxea . You may need to user regenerate thumbnails plugin (Example https://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/ ) to regenerate your image
      – Please Enable Gzip http://prntscr.com/hhjxgw So you can have better score
      – Compressing your images for faster loadding http://prntscr.com/hhjxmv
      – Leverage browser caching http://prntscr.com/hhjy9g You can try to add this line to .htaccess file:

      <IfModule mod_expires.c>
      ExpiresActive On
      ExpiresByType image/jpg "access plus 1 year"
      ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access plus 1 year"
      ExpiresByType image/gif "access plus 1 year"
      ExpiresByType image/png "access plus 1 year"
      ExpiresByType text/css "access plus 1 month"
      ExpiresByType application/pdf "access plus 1 month"
      ExpiresByType text/x-javascript "access plus 1 month"
      ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash "access plus 1 month"
      ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access plus 1 year"
      ExpiresDefault "access plus 2 weeks"

      – You are using 2 plugin cache, we recommend that you sould use 1 of that is better than double.
      Your site is now loading with 5.3seconds, it is a good time, you can do some thing above to reduce it http://prntscr.com/hhjym5
