Wordpress site audit & improve speed by fixing redirects


I have recently launched an online food store which I am very passionate about and have a big vision for (I guess every starting entrepreneur says that). I've been working on this business plan for a year, learnt how to build a site, and gotten everything going myself, but I have now reached the point where I'm looking to level up and outsource.

I am looking to improve my site speed and have a general audit done. I have received a quote and hours estimate here locally by reputable developers in South Africa where I am from, however, I'd like to find a freelancer that I can trust and build an ongoing relationship with for all future website work and development.

The quote included:

Check that the theme and plugins are up to date

Check that Wordpress and PHP versions are up to date

Check permalink structure

Check comments settings

Check form anti-spam settings

Check SSL settings

Check caching settings

Check custom code (JS and CSS) for potential performance impact

Check image file sizes

Troubleshoot multiple redirect issue

Please note that I built the site myself (Wordpress using Flatsome theme) and largely optimised it within my means (minify Javascript and CSS, use Shortpixel to compress images and serve as next gen WebP, caching, etc). I've been told my main issue on speed is the redirects, which I don't know how to fix.

Hope to find someone who I can get to know and grow with, who can solve all my problems, and who I can always depend on. This project will serve as a test to find that someone :)
