Speed Up Wordpress Site that is Partially Optimized Already to Load in 2 Sec or Less

Budget $30 - $250 USD
Bids 14
Average Bid $192

I have a website with integrated blog - all running on Wordpress. The site load time is around 4 seconds according to [url removed, login to view] results below:

[url removed, login to view]

We need a Wordpress expert to help me speed up the site, so that pages load in 2 seconds or less (according to [url removed, login to view], which we will use again to test the site using the same server setting once the project is finished) WITHOUT MAJOR REDESIGNS.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND ACKNOWLEDGE WHEN RESPONDING - I know many of you guys don't read specs!

- This site has already a cache plugin (W3 Total Cache).
- The site already uses MaxCDN.
- The site images are optimized.
- Sprites are used.
- Certain JS scripts (Contact Form 7, Sharethis, Nivo Slider, Datetime, etc.) are being loaded only on the pages they are needed (for example, changes were made in [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], etc.).
- Expires headers added to everything except Google Analytics I believe, because I'm not sure if browser caching would work with GA.

You need to do better than that.

Here are some potential areas to improve on (as well as the areas you suggest)....

- Maybe more work can be done with Disqus (so that it only loads on the blog post pages), Livezilla, Disqus, etc.) and certain scripts could be moved to the footer.
- Some of the speed tests specify that we have 9 external JS scripts loading on the home page and suggests to COMBINE these files into 1.
- Some also recommend to "Enable Keep-Alive," but we are on a shared hosting plan, so not sure it can be done.
- MaxCDN wrote a nice piece on how they were able to cut their page load time to less than 1 second here: [url removed, login to view] (not sure if some of these ideas may be used).
- Any other suggestions you may have.

I have about 80 pages and 7 posts. No big deal in terms of volume.

Here is how it works if you want to win the bid:
1) Send your reply with "faster" in subject line so I know you cared to read my project description.
2) When I choose you, I will pay 2 milestones. The first consists of you sending me your plan of action. If this makes sense, we will move into the implementation. Then you will receive the second milestone.
3) Specify both milestone fees in your bid.
4) The more you explain how you want to proceed and what your experience is performing similar tasks and working on similar projects, the more likely you will get the bid.
5) At the end of the project, the page load time will be measured again using [url removed, login to view] and will be compared to the above results.

I will not respond to "we are great and hope to get your project" bids. Be more precise, please.

Thanks.

Great work as always. He was really flexible in customizing the WordPress template for us. Even though the template was supposed to be fully-responsive, it needed a lot of coding tweaks which he was able to do with great ease. He also customized a plugin for us, which allowed customers to leave us reviews with the correct structured data. Thank you as always! Thumbs up!
